Pleasanton, CA (June 18, 2021) – Lion’s Lair is the third winner for California’s Leading and the #4 Nationally ranked Freshman Sire Stanford!
The 2nd race on the opening day card at Pleasanton was a maiden special weight going five furlongs over the fast track. Lion’s Lair, who finished second on debut, showed plenty of early pace, pressing the leading filly at her saddle cloth through the opening quarter. She was wide around the turn and wider yet into the stretch, but the ground loss was no problem. She overcame her inexperience and found her best stride inside the final furlong to win by two and one-quarter lengths.
Lion’s Lair is a homebred racing for Moger Inc. and Alan Eriksen. Trained by Ed Moger, Jr., he is out of the winning Lion Heart mare, Lisa’s Lion.
