Rockin Jojo’s narrow win Saturday at Parx Racing did more than break the two-year-old filly’s maiden; it also gave freshman sire Street Magician his first ever winner.
Rockin Jojo, making her second career start, ran within three lengths of the lead in the early going, angled out in the lane, and, while drifting wider, tracked down Everything Lovely to earn a neck victory in the $44,000 maiden special weight event. Rockin Jojo, out of the Palmister mare Chiqueda, now has a win and a second from two starts.
Rockin Jojo was bred in Pennsylvania by David Miller and Skymarc Farm and is owned by Michael Cox. She’s trained by Bernie Houghton.
For Street Magician, the 10-year-old who is one of only two sons of Street Cry standing in the mid-Atlantic, it was the first winner of his career as a stallion. A Grade 3 winner on the track, Street Magician stands at Heritage Stallions in Chesapeake City, MD. He has 38 current two-year-olds, among them Magic Soul, out of the Partner’s Hero mare What Am I Gonna Do, who fetched $95,000 at the OBS April sale.
Street Magician’s next starter will be Saturday, September 3, when Tony Dutrow trainee Think Big is slated to run at Parx Racing.
