Baffert said Thursday that he will also work other graded-stakes performers nominated to stakes at Pimlico Race Course during Preakness Weekend: Michael Lund Peterson’s unbeaten filly Faiza for the May 19 Black-Eyed Susan (G2); as well as Havnameltdown for the Chick Lang (G3) and Arabian Lion for the Sir Barton on May 20.
Baffert is bidding for his record-breaking eighth victory in the Preakness Stakes. His most recent victory was in 2018 with Triple Crown winner Justify.
2023 Preakness Stakes
National Treasure is owned by SF Racing LLC, Starlight Racing, Madaket Stables LLC, Robert E. Masterson, Stonestreet Stables LLC, Jay A. Schoenfarber, Waves Edge Capital LLC and Catherine Donovan. He has one win in five career starts but has three graded-stakes placings. In his most recent start, he was fourth in the Santa Anita Derby (G1) on April 8.
Faiza is perfect after five career starts. On April 8, the 3-year-old daughter of Girvin won the Santa Anita Oaks (G1) by 6 ½ lengths.
Havnameltdown, co-owned by longtime Baffert clients Mike Pegram, Karl Watson and Paul Weitman, has four wins and two seconds in six career races. The 3-year-old son of Uncaptured, who captured the San Vicente (G2) at Santa Anita, most recently finished second in the Saudi Derby (G3).
Zedan Racing Stables Inc.’s Arabian Lion was most recently second in Keeneland’s Stonestreet Lexington Stakes (G3), won by Preakness candidate First Mission.
