UNBRIDLED’S NOTE TAKES GRADE III EDDIE D STAKES, SANTA ANITA AUTUMN MEET OFF TO STRONG START
ARCADIA, Calif. (Sept. 28, 2012)—Idle since running a close third in the Grade I King’s Bishop Stakes on Aug. 25 at Saratoga, the Steve Asmussen-trained Unbridled’s Note tried the turf for the first time in Santa Anita’s inaugural Grade III, $100,000 Eddie D Stakes and he relished the lawn, winning by 1 ¼ lengths while covering the 6 ½ furlong downhill turf layout in 1:12.45.
Formerly run as the Morvich Stakes, the Eddie D was named in honor of retired Hall of Fame jockey Eddie Delahoussaye, who won his 6,000 career race at Santa Anita and who was on-hand to present the trophy.
