Lombo used his sprinter's speed to get to the front and kept going all the way to the finish to pick up 10 Road to the Kentucky Derby points in the $150,000 Robert B. Lewis Stakes (G3) Feb. 3 at Santa Anita Park.

After he set a pace of :23.40, :47.26, and 1:12.20 through six furlongs, the Mike Pender-trained colt opened up a four-length lead in the stretch which he never was in danger of losing, and hit the wire in 1:45.41 to score at odds of 8-1. 

"He's definitely a high-octane horse," Pender said. "Apparently Graydar had some of the same characteristics and Unbridled's Song (Graydar's sire) as well. He's just a big kid and (has) a little ADD to him, but he's starting to figure it out. When he does really figure it out, I think he'll be dangerous."

 Bred in Kentucky by Twin Creeks Farm, out of the Johannesburg mare Burg Berg, Lombo now has a 2-0-1 record from four starts and $129,225 in earnings.
