A horse to add to your black books by the name of Golden Hits broke his maiden in a win that was perhaps stronger than what meets the eye. The son of Your Song jumped well and was restrained to settle behind a frantic pace. At the top of the straight as Blake went to make his run he copped a severe interference and had to regain his balance and peel off the leader’s heals to power home for a strong win.

After riding 4 winners on the card, Blake Shinn described Golden Hit’s victory as “his most impressive of the day,” after having to overcome trouble in the run. We look forward to seeing where he can go this preparation!

Congratulations to his owners and connections!
