SAAFEN Sets the Pace in Maiden Victory

Making his second start of the year, and only his third career start, after placing in his seasonal debut, SAAFEN made the most of his inside post and led the way to the wire to win this six-furlong Maiden test by 3/4 length. The 3-year-old colt from the first crop of Breeders’ Cup winner TAMARKUZ out battled his rival on his outside to grab the lead early. He opened up on the field by 2 1/2 lengths on the turn and remained in front to the wire at Parx. SAAFEN is a Shadwell homebred out of the Medaglia d’Oro mare, Hilwah.
