In a debut befitting his princely price tag, Parenting (c, 3, Justify–Iadorakid, by Lemon Drop Kid) kicked away from a well-met group of maidens at Santa Anita Park, and became the newest 'TDN Rising Star' to hail from the Bob Baffert barn.

Hugging the rail after coming out a narrow leader via a scramble for the front, Parenting rolled into the lead off of :22.42 and :45.48 splits, and had put away most of his early competition by midstretch. Shaking loose under hand-urging, Parenting found enough in the tank to comfortably hold Santarena (Omaha Beach) at bay in the stretch. The victor is Justify's eighth 'TDN Rising Star'.

Parenting was a $750,000 OBS April 2-year-old in-training purchase by Gandharvi Stable after breezing :10 flat.

The most recent winner to the races for Iadorakid, Parenting has a yearling half-brother by Vekoma and his dam visited both Maclean's Music and Midnight Lute for 2024. Iadorakid is herself a half-sister to Canadian champion GISW El Tormenta (Stormy Atlantic), GSW Zero Tolerance (Mizzen Mast) and to a course-record setter at Kentucky Downs. This is the family of MGSW His Race to Win (Stormy Atlantic) and Canadian juvenile filly champion Hello Seattle.
