Juddmonte Farms homebred Hidden Scroll (c, 3, Hard Spun–Sheba Queen, by Empire Maker) romped home a resounding debut winner at Gulfstream Park Saturday to become the newest ‘TDN Rising Star.’ Sent off at 8-1, the bay colt broke alertly and quickly moved to the early lead through a quarter in :22.53. Clearly in front after a half in :44.75, Hidden Scroll extended his advantage turning for home and took a six-length lead into the stretch. He continued to pad his lead down the lane and strolled under the wire geared down and in front by 14 lengths, completing the one mile over the sloppy track in 1:34.82. High Amplitude (Bernardini) was second and Ranger Up (First Samurai) was third.
The Rising Star debut came two years after Juddmonte’s colors were carried to victory by Arrogate (Unbridled’s Song) in Gulfstream Park’s inaugural GI Pegasus World Cup.
The unraced Sheba Queen is a daughter of Group 1 winner Etoile Montante (Miswaki) and she is a half-sister to multiple graded stakes winner Starformer (Dynaformer). In foal to Flintshire (GB), the mare sold for $7,500 at the 2017 Keeneland November sale.
