National Treasure (c, 4, Quality Road–Treasure, by Medaglia d’Oro) made 6-5 look like a bargain with a front-running, tour-de-force victory in Saturday’s GI Hill ‘n’ Dale Metropolitan H. at Saratoga. Post Time (Frosted) was second; Hoist the Gold (Mineshaft) was third. The final time was 1:35.12.

National Treasure, winner of last year’s GI Preakness S. and this year’s GI Pegasus World Cup Invitational S., was last seen finishing fourth in the G1 Saudi Cup Feb. 24.

The Met Mile is a ‘Win and You’re In’ for the GI Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile. National Treasure was a painful second in last year’s renewal at Santa Anita.

Sales history: $500,000 yrl ’21 FTSAUG.

Breathtaking from National Treasure!
