Malibu Moon filly soars to Rising Star at Del Mar

Malibu Moon

Saturday, August 19, 2017
Moonshine Memories turned in a stellar performance in her debut Saturday at Del Mar, winning her maiden special weight debut by one length in a swift 1:10.08 for the six furlongs (VIDEO).

The 2-year-old Malibu Moon filly’s performance earned her a TDN Rising Star tag, joining the likes of top-class Malibu Moon offspring as Eden’s Moon, Kauai Kate, Cue the Moon and Carina Mia.

Moonshine Memories was pressed through a rapid half-mile in :45.17, but had plenty in reserve in the stretch to best Tyfosha by the final margin, while it was a dozen lengths back to the rest of the field.

The winner is owned by Bridlewood Farm along with Mrs. John Magnier, Derrick Smith and Michael Tabor. Bred by Summer Wind Farm, Moonshine Memories is out of Unenchantedevening, who is a half-sister to Horse of the Year Favorite Trick.
