G3 Sam F. Davis (2-4-12): 81 BSF (Battle Hardened)

According to Jeremy Plonk on drf.com: GROOVIN SOLO (Myung Kwon Cho) finished third, but had his number taken down for the incident with LIAISON, which placed him last. Regardless of the placing, this was a decent effort as he exited a mile maiden win with a much more stern test. Moving in the right direction, he’s a horse who would not be a surprise to see peaking around the Santa Anita Derby.
