Malibu Moon debutante romps by 10 at Belmont


Monday, September 14, 2009
Forty Moons, a 2-year-old filly by leading sire Malibu Moon, made a major impression in her debut to the races on Sept. 13th, romping by 10 lengths in a $40,000 maiden special weight contest at Belmont.

The eye-catching win immediately stamped Forty Moons as one to watch, as she stopped the clock in 1:11.26 for six furlongs over a local main track listed as ‘good’. A bay filly out of the stakes-placed Gold Fever mare Forty Moves, Forty Moons was bred in Virginia by her owner Edward Evans and is trained by Kiaran McLaughlin.

The day prior, a 2-year-old colt by Malibu Moon also made an impressive debut to the races, rolling to an eight-length score in a $22,000 maiden special weight at Calder. Ronald Spatz is the trainer of the chestnut colt, who is out of the Crafty Prospector mare Dream for a Moment.

Malibu Moon also enjoyed a graded stakes placing and another stakes placing, as his Grade 2-winning daughter Luna Vega finished third in the Ruffian H. (G1) at Belmont hours before multiple stakes winner Ask the Moon fell just three-quarters of a length short in the Revidere S.
