Cathkin Peak broke from post 5 under Flavien Prat at 4/1 odds and settled near the rear of the seven-horse field of juvenile males.

Commander Khai went to the lead and posted relatively uncontested opening fractions of :22.59, :45.74, and 1:09.51.

Tipped out at the top of the stretch to run wide and in the clear, Cathkin Peak rallied to the lead in the late stages before crossing a length clear.

Commander Khai remained 2 3/4 lengths clear of Beer Can Man in third. Big FishParty Game, and Barrister Tom completed the order of finish.

Ebeko, the 5/2 favorite, broke down near the 3/16 pole after trailing throughout and was reportedly euthanized.

Cathkin Peak’s win followed a maiden-breaking score going 1 mile over the Del Mar lawn in his North American debut. The Alhebayeb gelding, who finished fourth in a 5-furlong sprint in his career unveiling overseas, has now earned $81,672.

“He’s such a neat horse,” D’Amato said. “Ever since he arrived, he hasn’t done anything wrong and he keeps getting better and better. Flavien seems to fit him like a glove.”

Cathkin Peak returned $10.40 to win, $5 to place, and $3.40 to show. Commander Khai brought back $5.40 to place and $3.60 to show, while Beer Can Man paid $3 to show.
