Hammerin Aamer stretches out for maiden victory
Hammerin Aamer, making his first start beyond 6 1/2-furlongs, came through with a 1 1/2-length victory in a one-mile maiden race on Jan. 13 at Laurel Park.

Sent away the 3-5 favorite in the one-turn mile, Hammerin Aamer loomed three wide in third down the backstretch, then took over the lead on the turn, and after some mild pressure in upper from Royal Hussar, pulled away to come home a clear winner.

Hammerin Aamer, a son of Jump Start out of Signaling, was purchased by Zayat out of the 2015 Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Fall Yearlings sale.
