The WinStar stallion's latest winner came Sept. 21 at Parx when the 2-year-old colt Independence Hall drew off to a 4 3/4-length win in a seven-furlong maiden special weight contest. Placed fifth a couple lengths off the lead early on, Independence Hall moved to the lead in upper stretch and pulled clear to win his debut with ease.
The dark bay juvenile is owned by Kathleen and Robert Verratti and was bred by Woodford Thoroughbreds. His dam Kalahari Cat has had nine winners, including Spiral S. (G3) winner Black Onyx.
