Justify won his debut for Bob Baffert by 9 1/2 lengths

Starlight Racing has reached an agreement with SF Bloodstock to purchase an interest in promising 3-year-old colts Audible and Justify also owned in partnership with WinStar Farm and China Horse Club. 

“We have had a lot of success partnering with WinStar in the past,” said Jack Wolf, the managing partner of Starlight Racing. “We are excited to give our partners a thrill this spring and feel like both horses are in the best hands in two of the top barns in the country. Audible has already proven himself to be a top class stakes horse and while Justify may not be as experienced, he is bred to go the classic distance and could develop into something special.”

Audible, a son of Into Mischief, has won three of his four career starts including the Holy Bull Stakes (G2). Trained by Todd Pletcher, he is on target for the $1.1 million Florida Derby (G1) on March 31.

Justify, trained by Bob Baffert, is a son of Scat Daddy and a $500,000 Keeneland Sales graduate who turned heads with a 9 ½ length romp in his career debut at Santa Anita. The victory earned him a Beyer Speed Figure of 104. Though the colt has gotten a late start on the road to the Kentucky Derby, Baffert remains confident.

“It's not too late,” said Baffert following the colt's maiden win. “I've got a plan. We're looking (for a graded stakes race). He's shown his brilliance in the morning”.

Starlight Racing has had 7 Kentucky Derby starters, most recently in 2015 with Itsaknockout.
