Arch – Flying Dixie by Dixieland Band
2014 Premier, LLC
Outstandingly bred and with looks to match, Preservationist added up to the best yearling prospect we had ever purchased. His sire, Arch, has produced champions on three continents, on dirt and turf, going long and short. His deep female family traces back to Remedia, daughter of the legendary Dr. Fager out of the wonderful European classic winning mare Monade. The family has produced generations of standout runners, including Queena, Chic Shirine, Serra Lake, Somali Lemonade, Verrazano, and Hungry Island.
Preservationist is in training at Belmont Park with Jimmy Jerkens. He put in back to back wins in 2018 with a powerful performance winning by four lengths on February 17 and topping his previous Beyer numbers with a 97.
The big beast returned to the entries on January 5 at Aqueduct with a solid third despite a troubled start.
