Michael Pressley and Larry and Cindy Jones’s Kowboy Karma (Kodiak Kowboy) swept to the front midway on the turn and streaked home to graduate by about a dozen lengths in Wednesday’s fourth race at Delaware Park, becoming the newest ‘TDN Rising Star.’
Sent off the 17-10 second choice, the bay–bred and co-owned by Larry and Cindy Jones–was sluggish, under the whip and off the early pace as a three-way scrimmage for the lead developed up ahead. Given his cue with a touch less than three furlongs to travel, Kowboy Karma was past the half-mile in a slick :44 3/5 and widened from there, stopping the timer in a very fast 1:09 3/5.
The winner is the first foal from his dam, a daughter of SW & MGSP Alyssum (Storm Cat). Kowboy Karma’s third dam is champion Althea (Alydar) while the further female family includes the likes of Grade I winners Arch, Acoma and Balletto (UAE). Just Jan’s second produce is a filly by the Jones-conditioned Istan (Gone West).
