Mojo Race for Noshameatall!
June 2, 2013
Holdings, LLC is pleased to announce that Noshameatall has been entered
at Lone Star Park on Friday, June 7!
Noshameatall will be in
Race 1 going out of Post Position 1. It’s
a Maiden Special race for two-year-old colts and geldings at five
the dirt with a $20,000 purse.
Noshameatall is 2YO
Gelding by Notional out of Misty Weave.
He was purchased at the 2012 Keeneland September Yearling
Sale and is
part of a bundle Mojo put together that also includes another 2012
Keeneland grad by Point Given that will be in training later this
"We're excited about
having one of our two-year-olds race on Belmont Stakes weekend," says
Fred Taylor, Mojo's CEM. "The enthusiasm for racing will be
at a higher level with the third jewel of the Triple Crown up for
grabs, and there will be extra energy at Lone Star Park because of
the concert following the races that night!"
How did you come up with
the horse’s name?
“Well, one of the
partners in the group suggested it,” Fred explains.
“It’s a clever play on the sire’s name
and Noshameatall's tendency to demonstrate that he's a boy. Plus, the name's a perfect reflection of
pride and the partnership’s fun-loving spirit.
So, it’s a good fit!”
This is the first start for
most of the runners in this race, including Noshameatall. What
can we expect?
“With any first-time
starter, I’m looking for a good break, a clean trip, and for the
enjoy racing,” says JR Caldwell, Mojo’s Trainer. “He’s been solid in his recent
works from the
gate, and it’s time to see how he does in his first race.”
Some horses can be skiddish
or become anxious the first time they race.
How will Noshameatall handle the atmosphere?
“Since he’s been in the
barn, I’ve had him around several big race tracks; he’s
well in the busy environments; and, during training hours as the horses
are going in different directions, he’s comfortable
being with them,”
JR explains. “That said, you never
know how young horses will react
until they’re actually out there on race day; but I’d be
surprised if he's bothered by any of it.”
How do you think Noshameatall
“We want him to do well,
of course,” Fred says. “Like
JR said, coming
out of the race with the right frame of mind is really the most
important thing for
Noshameatall. I hope he shows a
competitive spark. And, anything better
than that will be icing on the cake for us at this point.”
There are a few horses
entered in this race that already have a start under their belt.
Does that give them an edge? And, why hasn’t Noshameatall
been in a race up
to this point?
“Well, for the horses
that have already raced, that’s probably valuable experience for
explains. “We didn’t run
April because we gave him time recover after being gelded.
And, once he was ready, the race we wanted wasn't
used in May. So,
we’ve been patiently waiting and, now, we’re looking
forward to seeing
Noshameatall run at Lone Star Park on Friday night!”
