The TDN Topic is a new feature for the TDN, designed to examine a topic in racing from several different angles, and then seek comment from our readers. In each TDN Topic, we ask people with different perspectives—from both inside and outside the sport—to comment on a hot-button issue. Today, we start with whipping.

   TDN Rising Star Let Em Shine took his winning streak to three in a row with a performance that would suggest he will be a major force, not only in his age group, but in the sprint division at large. Third to subsequent GSW Hear the Ghost (Ghostzapper) in a Dec. 15 maiden over this Cushion Track after setting wickedly fast early fractions, he defeated none other than GIII Sunland Park Derby hero Govenor Charlie (Midnight Lute) by 7 1/2 lengths at Santa Anita Jan. 19, earning his Rising Star designation. He ran them off their feet in a first-level allowance in Arcadia Mar. 10, scoring by open lengths, and repeated the dose in the first running of this race, essentially a downgraded version of the Grade III Laz Barrera S. Drawn inside, Let Em Shine was very fast and aggressive early and was well clear inside of the opening quarter mile. Gathered up a bit by Edwin Maldonado to conserve some energy, he took mild pressure from Turf Paradise raider Broadway Empire (Empire Maker) approaching the stretch, but it was token pressure at best, as Let Em Shine rebroke and had daylight on the field at the wire. "He's fast, there's no question about that," said winning trainer Adam Kitchingman. "I don't know how much farther he'll go. It depends on how much he relaxes. Seven furlongs is good right now. Maybe as an older horse we'll stretch him out a little more. Our goal is the [Grade I, $500,000 Foxwoods] King's Bishop [Aug. 24 at Saratoga]. We'll probably run him once more before then. If everything goes well, maybe we'll try the Breeders' Cup [Sprint Nov. 2 at Santa Anita].’’ Click for the chart or VIDEO.
