Punctuate, First Starter From Peppers Pride, Wins Career Debut at Santa Anita
RSS Feeds Saturday, September 27, 2014

Punctuate, a 2-year-old son of Distorted Humor and the undefeated New Mexico-bred mare Peppers Pride, won his career debut at Santa Anita Park on Saturday.

Ridden by Rosie Napravnik for trainer Bob Baffert, Punctuate rallied from last and got up to defeat Bronze Star by 1 3/4 lengths in 1:16.20 for 6 1/2 furlongs. The colt earned the $33,600 winner’s share of the $57,750 purse.

Punctuate was bred by Joe Allen of Abilene, Texas, and Michael Stinson of Fort Worth, Texas. Peppers Pride, a homebred 11-year-old daughter of the unraced Fappiano stallion Desert God, won all 19 of her career starts while racing exclusively in New Mexico from 2006-08. She earned $1,066,085 and ranks second behind only Rocky Gulch ($1,151,725) on the all-time earnings list for New Mexico-bred Thoroughbreds.

Punctuate represents Peppers Pride first starter. The colt sold for $300,000 at the 2013 Keeneland September Yearling Sale.

Peppers Pride has three other foals, including Dad, a yearling colt by Malibu Moon, and an unnamed weanling colt by Hard Spun.
