11th-Churchill Downs, $120,000, Msw, 5-27, 3yo/up, 6 1/2f, 1:16.83, ft, 10 1/4 lengths.
MULLIKIN (c, 3, Violence–Tulira's Star {GSP}, by Congrats) donned cap and gown in the nightcap of Churchill's Saturday card by open lengths on the wire. Second in two prior outings–by a nose Feb.18 at Oaklawn Park on debut and then a game runner-up Apr. 8 at Keeneland trying seven furlongs–the Rodolphe Brisset trainee was well-supported for a third try at 3-5 favoritism and made it look a gift as he led the field wire to wire here. Cusp (City of Light) ran on for second at 10-1. The most recent winner for his dam, Mullikin has a yearling half-sister by McKinzie and a 2023 half-brother by Maxfield. Tulira's Star, a half-sister to GSW Mountain General (Mountain Cat) and to SW Tulira Castle (War Pass), also claims Text Queen (Strong Hope) as a half-relation; that mare being responsible for GSP Xoxo (Majestic Warrior); SP Queens Up (Classic Empire); and SP Everqueen (Colonel john). This is the extended female family of GISW Storm Towner (Irish Tower) and GISP & GSW Psyched (Hagley). Sales history: $500,000 Ylg '21 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 3-1-2-0, $105,750.
