Bill Mott unveils the latest blue-blooded colt to hail from Jane Lyon's Summer Wind Farm in SOUTHERN FLAG (Union Rags). His second dam is the farm's matriarch, SW & GSP Misty Hour (Miswaki), who has produced the likes of MGSW India (Hennessy), dam of MG1SW Mozu Ascot (Frankel {GB}) and SW Kareena (Medaglia d'Oro); and SW Pilfer (Deputy Minister), who is the dam of MGISW To Honor and Serve (Bernardini), GISW Angela Renee (Bernardini) and SW & GISP Elnaawi (Street Sense).

'TDN Rising Star' STAGE RAIDER (Pioneerof the Nile), a half-brother to unbeaten Triple Crown hero Justify (Scat Daddy), faces winners for the first time in this event. Second to a 'TDN Rising Star' performance from Prevalence (Medaglia d'Oro) on debut at Gulfstream Jan. 23, the bay earned the honor himself when demolishing the field by 10 3/4 lengths in a sloppy seven-panel test at Keeneland Apr. 10, earning a 96 Beyer Speed Figure. He was further flattered when the runner-up from that event Harvard (Pioneerof the Nile), a full-brother to champion Classic Empire, romped at Indiana Downs Wednesday. TJCIS PPs
