Florida-based stallion Win Win Win (by Hat Trick {Jpn}) could not have kicked his second career off any better, earning a first winner and first 'TDN Rising Star' Thursday as Nooni (Win Win Win–Unanimity, by Union Rags) lived up her billing in a winning debut at Santa Anita.

After blitzing a quarter-mile in :20.1 at OBS March, Nooni caught the eye of Zedan Racing Stables and trainer Bob Baffert who went to a sales-topping $1,800,000 to secure the filly from her sire's first crop. Hammered down to 1-5 in the wagering, the filly, affectionately named for her owner's wife, made the lead right from the opening jumps and, seemingly in the blink of an eye, was already ahead by a clear margin. In what was clearly a one-horse race throughout, Nooni absolutely cruised, running comfortably under Juan Hernandez into the lane. Hernandez gave one look under his shoulder and wrapped up on his filly, bringing her home in a gallop to win by nearly double digits when all was said and done.

Her sire's first winner from five starters, Nooni is out of a placed half-sister to MSW/MGSP Courtesan (Street Sense) and to the dam of both GIII Holy Bull S. winner Hades (Awesome Slew) and Astoria S. winner Devious Dame (Girvin). This is the extended family of GISW Discreet Cat (Forestry) and G1SW Discreetly Mine (Mineshaft) along with GISW and $4m KEENOV broodmare buy Awesome Maria (Maria's Mon). Unanimity returned to Win Win Win for a 2023 colt and foaled another colt by Gretzy the Great this year.
