EARNEDNEVERGIVEN Draws Off in Oaklawn Score
Making his second start since a move from the West Coast, EARNEDNEVERGIVEN seized the lead on the turn and pulled away for a 4 1/2-length victory at Oaklawn Park. With a bullet four-furlong work in :48.60 a week earlier, the 4-year-old son of ALTERNATION pressed the pace from the start in this six-furlong sprint. EARNEDNEVERGIVEN moved up to challenge for the lead around the turn, then drew off through the stretch under mild urging. Last year he set the pace to win a two-turn one mile maiden test at Del Mar. Lifetime record: 11-2-1-3, $58,175. O-M and M Racing (Mike Sisk). B-Bradley W. Purcell. T-Norman McKnight.
