Homebred Star Guitar filly extended win streak July 24 at Saratoga Race Course.
As the hours wound down on a remarkable birthday July 24 in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., Evelyn Benoit took a moment to reflect. The owner of Brittlyn Stable has believed in her stallion Star Guitar from the start of his stud career, and Wednesday Benoit watched at Saratoga Race Course as Minit to Stardom dashed across the line in the $200,000 Honorable Miss Handicap (G2) to become the Louisiana-bred’s first graded stakes winner.
Givemeaminit, a two-year-old Louisiana Bred colt by Star Guitar out of Powerful Nation placed third in the G1 Hopeful Stakes at Saratoga, Monday September 4, 2017, in his second start. The bay colt from Star Guitar’s second crop, was soundly bumped at the start, then chased wide before tucking in on the rail. When asked, he rallied willingly along the rail to miss by a head and a neck. He was bred, raised and started by Clear Creek Stud and is owned by Valene Farms LLC.
