ANCHOR DOWN‘s Dropped Anchor won his third race in six starts this year on Thursday at Gulfstream Park with a commanding seven length victory.
The colt proved to be the best from the start when breaking on top in the one mile race and staying in command from there. Keeping over a length on the field at every call, he was ready to expand that lead when asked by Angel Arroyo.
The ANCHOR DOWN son romped away down the stretch with no one in the field able to get anywhere near him. As he flashed past the wire, the second place horse was seven lengths back with the rest of the field over 11 lengths behind him at the line.
This was the third career victory for the Wadie Khalaf-owned 3-year-old with Dropped Anchor finishing top three in six of his eight starts.
