Mojo Thoroughbred Holdings, LLC is pleased to announce that Noshameatall has been entered to race 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 furlongs on 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 year.  

"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 Mojo’s 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 horse to 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 done 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 will finish?

“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 them,” Fred explains.  “We didn’t run Noshameatall in 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!”
