Nooni first winner for Ocala Stud’s Win Win Win
Friday, June 14, 2024

Ocala Stud’s freshman sire Win Win Win was represented by his first winner on Thursday, June 13, when  Florida-bred Nooni turned heads in winning a maiden special weight over five furlongs at Santa Anita Park in her highly anticipated career debut. Bred in Florida by Ocala Stud, Joseph O’Farrell, David O’Farrell, et al, Nooni is no stranger to generating headlines. She topped this year’s OBS March Sale, selling to Zedan Racing Stables for $1.8 million after breezing a co-record quarter mile in :20 1/5 at that sale’s under tack preview.

Ridden by Juan Hernandez, Nooni, the prohibitive favorite, broke on top and immediately opened a clear advantage on her rivals. She cruised into the stretch and won in hand by 9 ½ lengths without ever being asked for her best. After rolling uncontested through fractions of :22.07 and :45.44, she stopped the clock in :58.21 geared down in the end and was named a TDN Rising Star. The Bob Baffert trainee is produced from the Union Rags mare Unanimity, and she hails from the family Grade 1 winners Discreet Cat and Discreetly Mine.

Classically bred with record-setting speed, Win Win Win proved an impressive winner of the Forego S. (G1) at Saratoga in his final career start. All told, he banked $601,600 in a stellar racing career. In his sophomore bow at three, Win Win Win set a new track record at Tampa Bay Downs in winning the Pasco Stakes. He drew off powerfully in that seven-furlong fixture, stopping the clock in 1:20.89. He also won the Manila Stakes at one mile on turf at Belmont Park, getting the distance in 1:31.56, just one-fifth of a second off the course record set by Oscar Performance.

A Live Oak homebred, Win Win Win is by Champion Miler and Grade 1 winner Hat Trick (JPN) and is a descendant of the Halo sire line. The Florida-bred hails from a deep Live Oak family and his dam is the winning Smarty Jones mare Miss Smarty Pants, a half-sister to Graded stakes winner and multiple Graded stakes-placed Unbridled Humor.

Win Win Win’s first 2-year-olds have been well-received at public auction. In addition to Nooni, Win Win Win also had a $310,000 filly purchased by Champion Equine at the OBS Spring Sale. He has had eight of 12 first 2-year-olds sell in the auction ring for an average price of $325,875.
