Another 'Rising Star' for Ghostzapper

02.09.2018 -

The Ghostzapper son Telekinesis traveled wide throughout before rocketing home to become the latest Thoroughbred Daily News ‘TDN Rising Star'.

Racing in the colors of Stonestreet Farm, the bay broke from his outside post as the 9-5 second choice and traveled three wide down the backstretch, tracking pacesetter Chuck’s Dream through a swift opening quarter in :21.98. He stayed in the three path around the far turn as he drew on even terms with the leader and favored Nola Win to make it three across the track turning for home. They were still locked in battle until the sixteenth pole when Telekinesis found another gear and kicked clear to graduate by 3 1/4 lengths over Nola Win.

"He is extremely talented," trainer Mark Casse told The TDN. "I am not sure what we are going to do with him, but we think he is a future star. I haven't come up with a second race yet, but probably two turns."

Telekinesis was bred by William D. Grahm in Ontario and was a $470,000 weanling purchase by Stonestreet at the 2015 Keeneland November sale. He hails from the family of MGSW Family Tree and GISW Dance Teacher. One of five 2018 Triple Crown nominees by Ghostzapper, he was scheduled to make his debut Jan. 28 here before flipping in the paddock and becoming a late scratch. 

He is the second winner out of unraced Intentional Cry, whose dam is MGSW Gold Mover. She has a juvenile filly named Syllable (by Super Saver) and a yearling full-sister to Telekinesis. She was bred back to Ghostzapper last year.
