Carving 2-for-2 for Baffert and Miller after stakes win at Fairplex
Saturday, September 15, 2012
Jill Baffert and Bode Miller's promising 2-year-old colt Carving remained undefeated after winning the $50,000 C. B. Afflerbaugh S. Sept. 12 at Fairplex Park. He broke his maiden going five furlongs Aug. 23 at Del Mar.

Carving, by Any Given Saturday, is the first horse ever owned by Miller, an Olympic Gold Medalist and 2-time World Cup champion apline skier. The Bafferts' son is named after the skier.

Carving won the seven furlong Afflerbaugh by three and one-quarter lengths with Martin Garcia in the irons. Then final time of 1:24.62 was rewarded with a very respectable Beyer Speed Figure of 83. Carving has earned $54,900 in his two starts.

Bred in Kentucky by WinStar Farm LLC, Carving sold at this May's Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Sale, where Miller placed the winning bid of $55,000. Miller derived the name Carving from a skiing term  that allows the skier to maintain speed through the turns.

Baffert didn't immediately say what race was next for the dark bay colt, but there are several stakes options at the upcoming Santa Anita Park meet prior to the Nov. 2-3 Breeders' Cup, which will also be run at the southern California track.
