Almostgone Rocket (f, 3, Into Mischief–Bound, by Jump Start) made it look easy on her debut at Oaklawn Park to the tune of 'TDN Rising Star' honors for the effort.

Breaking well and keen to press the issue early, she took over at the half after :22.25 and :46.45 splits, and had opened up a notable margin coming into the lane. With no one coming close, she strolled home the easiest of winners by 11 3/4 lengths. Early leader 24-1 longshot Delacina (Dominus) was clearly second best.

Out of multiple stakes-winner Bound (Jump Start), the victress is Into Mischief's 43rd runner to get the nod from the TDN, and the second winner from as many to race for tht broodmare. Their dam has also produced a 2-year-old Big Air (Vekoma) as well as a yearling colt by Vino Rosso. She is carrying a ful-sibling to Almostgone Rocket for 2024.

In addition to Bound exploits on the track, this is the family of her stakes-winning sisters Lune Rouge (Malibu Moon) and Road to Mandalay (Sea of Secrets), who herself produced SW La Concerto (Aptitude) and SP Game Token (Gold Token). Bound also claims GSP Justice for Auston (Lit de Justice) as a half-brother as well as the dam of GSW Battle Bling (Vancouver {Aus}).
