Gainesway grad Noble's Promise tallies G3 Aristides


Monday, June 06, 2011 |

Grade 1-winning Gainesway sales grad Noble's Promise became racing's newest millionaire on June 4th, with his 1:08 3/5 victory in the Aristides S. (G3) at Churchill Downs.

This was the first Graded tally of 2011 for Noble's Promise, and the 25th stakes performer of the year for Gainesway Sales.

Gainesway consigned Noble's Promise to the 2007 Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale on behalf of his breeders, Dr. Chuck Kidder, Dr. Nancy Cole, and Ben Kidder. The weanling son of Cuvee out of The Devil's Trick, by Clever Trick was purchased by Southcoast B/S, agent for Wild As Elle Partnership.

The Aristides victory improved the career record of Noble’s Promise to 5-3-1 in 14 races, and the winner’s prize of $66,336 pushed his career earnings to $1,027,774.

The winner scored his first graded stakes victory since his two-year-old season, when he won Keeneland’s Breeders’ Futurity (G1). A multiple stakes winner at two who placed in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile (G1) and CashCall Futurity (G1), Noble's Promise was an Eclipse Award Finalist as Champion Two-Year-Old. He also won last fall’s $85,000 Jimmy V Stakes during Breeders’ Cup Weekend at Churchill Downs.
