Southwest Stakes 2013 Results: Super Ninety Nine Unmatched In Arkansas

Wesley Hitt

A sloppy and sealed Oaklawn main track can't stop Super Ninety Nine from dominating the Grade 3 Southwest Stakes.

Super Ninety Nine, an impressive winner at Santa Anita in his last start, went to post as the odds-on even-money favorite and proceeded to steamroll the field of the Southwest Stakes in gate-to-wire fashion. Long shots Fear the Kitten and Heaven's Runway rallied to finish second and third, respectively, but Super Ninety Nine was never in danger of losing after the half mile mark.

A thunderstorm thirty minutes before post time tuned the Oaklawn main track into a sea of slop, a change in conditions that appeared to suit Officer Alex, Always in a Tiz and Big Lute, three horses with good wet track pedigrees and/or prior races over similar surfaces. But all three of those colts found themselves looking at Super Ninety Nine's backside the entire way around the Oaklawn course.

For his victory in the Southwest Stakes, Super Ninety Nine earns 10 points towards a spot in the starting gate in the 2013 Kentucky Derby. Fear the Kitten earns 4 points, Heaven's Runway gets 2 points, and fourth place finisher Channel Isle picks up a point.

Super Ninety Nine is a three-year-old colt by Pulpit out of a Unbridled's Song mare (Exogenetic), trained by Bob Baffert and ridden by Rafael Bejarano
