Eden's Moon demolishes foes at Santa Anita

Sunday, January 08, 2012
Eden's Moon was simply stellar in her maiden win Jan. 8 at Santa Anita Park, running away to a 11 1/2- length victory in her second lifetime start. The 3-year-old daughter of Malibu Moon covered the mile in a very good 1:36.75 on a fast track.

Martin Garcia had his mount under a tight hold from the outset, but the bay filly sped to the front to get the half mile in :47.20, with a one length lead. She began to pull away from the field on the turn; Garcia gave her a nudge and tap on the shoulder in the stretch, and the margin increased with every stride. With the outcome already decided, Garcia geared his mount down late to coast home.

Eden's Moon debuted at Hollywood Park on Dec. 18, finishing second and earning a Beyer Speed Figure of 92. The Bob Baffert trainee, owned by Kaleem Shah, has now earned $42,600 in her young career.

Baffert, as agent, bought Eden's Moon at the 2011 Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Sale of 2-year-olds, with a winning bid of $390,000. That was the second-highest figure at the event, and the highest price paid for a filly.

Florida-bred Eden's Moon is the first starter out of Eden's Causeway, who is a daughter of the great producer North of Eden. Among her foals are champion turf horse Paradise Creek, $1.4 million earner Forbidden Apple, Grade 1 winner Wild Event, and Paradise River, dam of English highweight horse David Junior.
