Running Mate sped out to an early lead and never looked back for a “TDN Rising Star” worthy debut. Away well, the 3-1 shot assumed command in a matter of strides and was well within himself as he ticked off early fractions of :22 4/5 and :46 2/5. Showing the way into the lane, the dark bay effortlessly cruised clear to win for fun with a six-length victory and become the 11th winner for his freshman sire (by Giant's Causeway). Homer Haps (Tizway) was the best of the rest. Running Mate is the first foal out of Street Mate, who has since produced a yearling full-brother to the winner and a weanling filly by Majesticperfection, who stands at the Jones family's Airdrie Stud along with Creative Cause. She was bred back to Summer Front, who stood his first season at stud at Airdrie this spring. Sales history: $65,000 RNA Wlg '14 KEENOV. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $20,400.
