3YO ARC NATION Puts in Game Effort in Santa Anita Maiden Win

After finishing runner-up in his last start, just 3/4 length back, ARC NATION made his third career start a winning one taking a hard-fought Maiden at Santa Anita by 1/2 length. The 3-year-old colt by ALTERNATION pressed the pace early in this 6 1/2-furlong test. He moved up to take the lead near the top of the stretch, had contact with the runner-up a couple of times in the run to the wire and prevailed in the end. Lifetime record: 3-1-1-0, $24,400. O-Arc Racing. B-Brereton C. Jones & B. Ned Jones. T-Patrick Gallagher.
