2YO RED FLAG Rallies to Win Maiden Special at Santa Anita

Making his second start after finishing behind a “TDN Rising Star” on the dirt at Del Mar in his debut, RED FLAG switched to turf and closed wide to win this 5 1/2-furlong Maiden Special Weight by a neck. The $220,000 Keeneland September Sales grad from the first crop of TAMARKUZ trained by John Shirreffs for owners Jerome S. and Tina Moss was off a bit slow as was the case in his first start. The colt began his rally on the turn, was way wide which put him in at least the sixth path turning for home, and then closed strongly on the outside to get up for the win. He was bred by Elaine MacPherson out of the Stormy Atlantic mare, Surrender.
