All set for a sloppy unveiling, Insight horse Star of Wonder (Uncle Mo–Starship Warpspeed, by Congrats) rolled late to break his maiden at first asking which earned him a ‘TDN Rising Star’ badge at Churchill Downs on Sunday afternoon.

A half-brother to MGISW Shedaresthedevil (Daredevil), the 2-1 second choice bided his time towards the rear of the field as the frontrunners set a hot pace up the backstretch and into the far turn. Fanning out wide and ending up in the center of the course, the 3-year-old was full of run down the lane and won by three lengths over longshot Padiddle (Empire Maker).

Star of Wonder is the 16th ‘TDN Rising Star’ for his Coolmore-based sire.

The final running time was 1:36.81.

Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0.
