Prate (Into Mischief) was quoted at 6-1 on the morning-line ahead of this debut, but was hammered down to even-money favoritism by post time and ran to the money with a 'TDN Rising Star'-worthy graduation. Away alertly from the nine-hole, the Juddmonte homebred saved ground in a joint third, keeping a close eye on the leaders through a swift first quarter in :21.26. Tipped out two wide as the half went in :44.92, the gray split foes exiting the bend and charged clear with powerful strides in mid-stretch to win as he pleased by 4 1/2 lengths. The final time for the six-furlong event of 1:09.81 was faster than both of the juvenile stakes run at the same distance earlier in the card. The Sugar Bowl S. for colts went in 1:10.12 and the Letellier Memorial S. for fillies was completed in 1:10.17. Juddmonte and trainer Brad Cox were also represented by a juvenile 'TDN Rising Star' in NOLA Friday when homebred filly Sun Path (Munnings) scored an impressive victory in a two-turn allowance.

The winner is the first foal out of Vaunting, a third-generation Juddmonte homebred and a full-sister to GSW Bragging. The 7-year-old mare has since produced the yearling filly Visualize (Into Mischief) and a weanling filly by Kantharos. She was bred back to Twirling Candy.
