Loggins (c, 2, Ghostzapper-Beyond Blame, by Blame) had a trio of bullet workouts on display for trainer Brad Cox and ran to the money as the 4-5 favorite with an impressive 'TDN Rising Star' performance on debut Saturday at Churchill Downs.

Away in good order from a middle gate in a field of 11, the bay raced in between rivals in a tightly bunched group. Third and traveling smartly on the far turn, he launched a three-wide bid approaching the five-sixteenths, took control under his own power at the top of the stretch and was long gone from there to graduate by a jaw-dropping 8 1/2 lengths over Easy Action (Speightstown).

The $460,000 FTSAUG yearling purchase is campaigned by the powerhouse partnership of Spendthrift Farm LLC, Steve Landers Racing LLC, Martin S. Schwartz, Michael Dubb, Ten Strike Racing, Jim Bakke, Titletown Racing Stables, Kueber Racing, LLC, Big Easy Racing LLC and Winners Win.

The Ghostzapper/Arch cross is also responsible for MGISW Contested and GSWs Proctor's Ledge and In Good Spirits. Loggins, hailing from the extended female family of GISWs Street Boss and Jack Christopher, is the first foal for his graded stakes-winning dam, a Popatop homebred trained by Cox. She has also produced a Flatter filly of 2021 and a colt by Authentic of this year. She was bred back to Essential Quality.
