12th-Churchill Downs, $125,885, Alw (NW1X)/Opt. Clm ($100,000), 5-3, 3yo, f, 6 1/2f, 1:16.08, sy, 4 1/4 lengths.

ALMOSTGONE ROCKET (f, 3, Into Mischief–Bound {MSW, $419,174}, by Jump Start) became a ‘TDN Rising Star‘ off her 11 3/4-length thrashing of the field in her Oaklawn debut Apr. 5. Adding just a half-furlong here, the 2-1 favorite sat just off the frontrunners as Mink’s Palace (Palace Malice) led through fractions of :22.75 and :45.96. Once given her head, the filly unleashed a wide bid around the turn, swept right on past that pacesetter and drew off in hand to win going away by 4 1/4 lengths in her first try over a sloppy track. Mink’s Palace was clear for second ahead of a strung-out field. Almostgone Rocket has a 2-year-old Vekoma half-sister, a yearling half-brother by Vino Rosso and a newborn full-sister. Sales History: $250,000 Ylg ’22 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 2-2-0-0, $141,960. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by FanDuel TV.
