ARABIAN KNIGHT (c, 3, Uncle Mo–Borealis Night, by Astrology) ran to all the hype in Saturday’s GIII Smarty Jones S., splashing away in the Oaklawn slop to justify ‘TDN Rising Star’-dom, 2-5 odds and his $2.3-million OBS April-topping price tag. Having turned plenty of heads to kick off Breeders’ Cup Saturday a 7 1/4-length winner at Keeneland in November, the Bob Baffert pupil broke like a shot, snuck away from them at the top of the lane and strode out with giant strides to report home some seven lengths clear of Red Route One (Gun Runner). Frosted Departure (Frosted) settled for third after briefly looking like he could challenge the winner. Arabian Knight stopped the clock in 1:43.50. Sales history: $250,000 ylg ’21 KEESEP; $2,300,000 2yo ’22 OBSAPR. Lifetime Record: 2-2-0-0.
