Mojo Race Recap:
Noshameatall at Remington Park
Mojo Racing Partners kicked off their 2013 Remington Park (RP) campaign with a runner up finish!
Facing 11 other horses in Race 5 at RP on August 29, Noshameatall (2YO Gelding by Notional out of Misty Weave) broke to the front after a good/clean start from Post Position 5 and set the pace down the backstretch. The opening quarter was in :22 and 1. Around the far turn, Noshameatall held off rivals and then responded to pressure at the top of the stretch.
“Going into the turn, I thought the race was in hand,” said Fred Taylor, Mojo’s CEM. “At the quarter pole, I got that ‘uh, oh’ feeling because I expected Noshameatall to accelerate; but that didn’t happen. Instead he was still caught in the grinder with the #7 at the top of the stretch. Noshameatall kept digging, though, and he wasn’t giving in—the horse really has heart.”
Down the stretch, Noshameatall got clear of Feline Fever (#7); but Turn Up The Lights (#12) was closing fast down the center of the track and caught Noshameatall.
“I don’t think our horse or the jockey knew the #12 was gaining ground so quickly on the outside,” Fred sums up. “At the 16 pole, the #12 drew even; Noshameatall fought back, but it was too late to rally; and we got beat by a half length. Nevertheless, I thought it was a gutsy effort on the part of Noshameatall, and I extend my congratulations to the winning connections. Though we didn’t win, it was a fun race to watch, and it wouldn’t be Mojo racing if it wasn’t exciting!”
Noshameatall was claimed in the race for $25,000.
“When you enter a race with claiming conditions, you have to be at peace with the fact that your horse may be acquired by another ownership group,” Fred explains. “We choose our races based on the horses' competitive abilities, as well as their value. Of course, having your horse change ownership hands is difficult sometimes; but it’s not just a one way transaction either—the owners receive cash for their horse being claimed. In our case, the new owners got our horse and we received $25,000.”
What’s next for Mojo?
“Several things,” Fred points out. “On the racing front, we have another 2YO named Propizio (by Point Given out of Auspice) in the barn that JR (Mojo's Trainer) is grooming for his debut at RP. He's a stout individual that we'll roll out later in the meet. And, Wild About Annie (by Wimbledon out of Sassy Anne) will be racing at Remington under the Mojo colors in the near future too.”
“We’re also going back to Keeneland in September to buy another yearling,” Fred continues. "Our Keeneland bloodstock acquisition strategy has worked well for us and we're going to do it again."
Mojo is offering up to a 4% share per person in the new Keeneland Yearling Group with the goal of preparing the horse to either race for Mojo as a Two-Year-Old (2YO) or be sold at one of the 2YOs In Training Sales next spring.
The participation prices range from $250 to $2,000 depending on a person’s desired interest. The funds raised go toward Mojo’s business expenses related to preparing the horse during the term of the agreement.
