Line Of David Wins US Gr1 Arkansas Derby
In the US, multiple Gr1-winning former Coolmore shuttler Lion Heart (Tale Of The Cat-Satin Sunrise, by Mr Leader) added a Gr1 triumph when front-running colt Line Of David (Lion Heart-Emma's Dilemma, by Capote) prevailed in a 3-way photo-finish to the US$1 million Gr1 Arkansas Derby (9 furlongs) for 3YOs at Oaklawn Park. Florida-bred Line Of David (ridden by Jon Court for trainer John Sadler) scored by a neck from fellow colt Super Saver (Maria's Mon-Supercharger, by A.P.Indy) with a further neck to another colt Dublin (Afleet Alex-Classy Mirage, by Storm Bird). Line Of David took his record to 3 wins (in his last 3 runs) & a placing from 6 starts for US$662,000 earnings.
