Undefeated in his first five starts, My Meadowview homebred Samraat scored his first graded stakes victory when he won the Grade 3 Withers Stakes by a length and punched his ticket to the Kentucky Derby with a hard-fought win in the $500,000 Gotham Stakes.
He suffered his first career defeat when finishing a game second in the Wood Memorial Stakes on April 5 at Aqueduct in his final prep race before a fifth place finish in the Kentucky Derby.
Samraat is a half-brother to three stakes-placed horses and is out of a half-sister to Grade 1 winner Nonsuch Bay. His sire, Noble Causeway, was second in the 2005 Florida Derby.
