First-Crop 2YO REBEL STEP Lead the Way Against Winners to Get Maiden Score

Coming off placing in a Maiden race at Galway in July in which the runner-up came back to be runner-up in the G1 Goffs Vincent O’Brien National S., REBEL STEP went gate to wire to win this one mile test on soft ground by a neck against winners at Thurles. Facing four winners in a field of six, the 2-year-old colt from the first crop of Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile-G1 winner TAMARKUZ was seriously challenged with a furlong to go but showed his determination to get to the wire first. The $100,000 Keeneland September yearling purchase was bred by Parrish Hill Farm out of Purr and Prowl, by Purim.
