Louisiana Bred Touchuponastar, (Star Guitar-Touch Magic, by Lion Heart), became the fourth Star Guitar progeny to add Graded Stakes placing credentials to his name when he finished second in the Grade III Steve Sexton Mile at Lone Star Park on Memorial Day.
Touchuponastar broke from the far outside and hustled to get position out of the gate. Vying for the lead in the run down the backstretch Touchuponastar took the lead turning for home but could not resist the closing rush of the winner Frosted Grace. Earning a 110 Equibase Speed Figure for his effort Touchuponastar has now earned $408,100 having never been worse than third in ten career efforts.
Touchuponastar is owned by the Set-Hut LLC stable of Jake Delhomme, is trained by Jeff Delhomme and was bred by Coteau Grove Farms of Ginger and Keith Myers.
