Noble's Promise Digs Deep in Aristides

A little sharper in his second start of the season, Noble's Promise returned to Churchill Downs to post a hard-fought win in the $110,300 Aristides Stakes (gr. III) June 4.

The 4-year-old son of Cuvee was a bit reluctant to get into the starting gate, but after he did he was able to stalk the pace and wear down Atta Boy Roy in mid-stretch to score by one length under Alan Garcia. The bay colt earned his second added-money victory at Churchill and gave trainer Ken McPeek a stakes double on the afternoon. McPeek won the Dogwood (gr. III) with Salty Strike one race earlier.

Noble’s Promise, owned by Chasing Dreams Racing 2008, notched his first graded stakes win since he took the Dixiana Breeders’ Futurity (gr. I) at Keeneland as a juvenile. Last out, he was fifth—beaten only two lengths—in the May 7 Churchill Downs Stakes (gr. II) in his season debut.
