The Malibu Moon colt Z Big Apple flashed his talent in his debut Oct. 20 at Santa Anita, winning like a seasoned veteran and earning the TDN “Rising Star” tag, given to juveniles that show promise early in their career (VIDEO).

Bottled up for the better part of the 5 1/2-furlongs, the 2-year-old firster had to wait for the right time to make his move, but once in the clear inside the final furlong, he cruised to the front and won by three parts of a length under a long hold. The final time was 1:04 flat.
