Emboldened

ARCADIA, Calif. (May 12, 2018)–Next to last, about nine lengths off the lead with three furlongs to run, longshot Emboldened swung seven wide turning for home and smoked through the lane to take Saturday’s $75,000 Angels Flight Stakes by 2¼ lengths under Martin Garcia. Owned and bred by Godolphin, LLC and trained by Bob Baffert, the 3-year-old daughter of Elusive Quality got seven furlongs in 1:23.59.

An impressive first-out, gate to wire maiden winner going six furlongs here on Jan. 5, Emboldened pressed the pace in a first condition allowance going 6½ furlongs on Feb. 9, but tired to finish third, beaten five lengths as the 2-1 favorite. Today, she avoided any semblance of a speed duel and defeated favored Moonshine Memories rather easily.
