Florida-based stallion Win Win Win (by Hat Trick {Jpn}) could not have kicked his second career off any better, earning a first winner and first 'TDN Rising Star' Thursday as Nooni (Win Win Win–Unanimity, by Union Rags) lived up her billing in a winning debut at Santa Anita.

After blitzing a quarter-mile in :20.1 at OBS March, Nooni caught the eye of Zedan Racing Stables and trainer Bob Baffert who went to a sales-topping $1,800,000 to secure the filly from her sire's first crop. Hammered down to 1-5 in the wagering, the filly, affectionately named for her owner's wife, made the lead right from the opening jumps and, seemingly in the blink of an eye, was already ahead by a clear margin. In what was clearly a one-horse race throughout, Nooni...

Once settled and in the gate, the favorite was ridden for the lead from his rail draw and always looked the winner, traveling confidently along the fence and coming home unchallenged to win by two lengths. Asleep At Eight (Frosted) beat home a trio of closers for second. Jotown, herself a $550,000 KEESEP yearling, is a daughter of GSW/GISP Jojo Warrior and a half to 'TDN Rising Star' Under Oath (Speightstown). This...

“I've been fortunate to have experienced first-hand the passion that Philadelphia fans bring in support of their athletes and teams,” NBA legend Dr. J said. “The unique model that National Thoroughbred League has created–not only bringing team-based and civic rooting...
