Momos, running for Ironhorse Racing Stable LLC and Secure Investments, made the lead just a few strides out of the gate and never let any of his foes within a length until the top of the stretch, when he drew away with ease to win in a hand ride.
The winner was bred by Tami Bobo and the Distorted Humor Syndicate and is the second foal out of Inspeight of Us, whose siblings include millionaire and Grade 1 filly Daddys Lil Darling, Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint (G1) winner Mongolian Saturday, and multiple stakes winner Victoryasecret.
Distorted Humor has had a remarkable 28 TDN Rising Stars in his illustrious career, with the likes of Restless Rider, Quip, Maclean's Music, Alternation, and Any Given Saturday on the list.
