OBS Grad Muth Wins Arkansas Derby
Sunday, March 31, 2024

    Zedan Racing Stables’ Muth (Good Magic – Hoppa) again served notice he’s a force to be reckoned with in the 3-year-old division, scoring a two-length win in the $1.5-million, Gr. I Arkansas Derby at Oaklawn Park.

    Pressing the pace from the start under Juan Hernandez, the son of Good Magic went after the lead leaving the backstretch, took command turning for home and eased away down the stretch to a decisive victory. It’s the second Gr. I win for Muth, consigned to the 2023 OBS March Sale by Top Line Sales, Agent, and purchased by Donato Lanni, Agent, for a sale record-equaling $2 million after turning in an Under Tack eighth in :9 3/5.

    The latest OBS millionaire, Muth is now 4-2-0 in six starts for trainer Bob Baffert and the check for $787,500 increased his earnings to $1,504,100.
