Oaklawn: Line of David in Arkansas Derby


Line of David ($36.60) completed a 'Southern California' sweep of Oaklawn's series of 3-year-olds when he held off Super Saver by a neck to win the Grade 1, $1 million Arkansas Derby. He shipped in from Santa Anita for the mile and an eighth race, following the lead of Conveyance, who won the Grade 3, $250,000 Southwest here in February, and Lookin At Lucky, who accounted for last month's Grade 2, $300,000 Rebel at Oaklawn.

Line of David was making his dirt debut in the race, following back-to-back turf wins at Santa Anita. Conveyance and Lookin At Lucky came into the Oaklawn series races off synthetic-surface stakes wins in Southern California.

Jon Court rode Line of David for Ike and Dawn Thrash and trainer John Sadler.
