Telekinesis (Ghostzapper) traveled wide throughout and got the job done late to be the second ‘TDN Rising Star’ from Fair Grounds in consecutive races Friday. He was scheduled to make his debut Jan. 28 here before flipping in the paddock and becoming a late scratch.
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 (Take Charge Indy) 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 (Elusive Quality) 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. Nola Win grabbed second.
Telekinesis, a $470,000 weanling purchase by Stonestreet at the Keeneland November sale, hails from the same family of MGSW Family Tree (Smart Strike) and GISW Dance Teacher (Smarten). He is the second winner out of unraced Intentional Cry, whose dam is MGSW Gold Mover (Gold Fever). She has a juvenile filly named Syllable (Super Saver) and a yearling full-sister to Telekinesis. She was bred back to that Adena Springs stallion last year.
