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 Saratoga Race Course with Jimmy Jerkens. He kept his “on the board” record intact at 100% as he provided Centennial partners with another exciting win on May 23 at Belmont. Junior Alvarado gave him a great ride and Preservationist scored his first triple digit Beyer of 101.
He took a big step up for his first stakes attempt winning the $700,000 G2 Suburban Stakes at Belmont Park on July 6 in impressive fashion. Junior Alvarado gave him a perfect ride winning by 4 1/2 lengths.
