Kentucky Derby and Horse Racing at The Downey Profile®

Star of Risen Star All Good


International Star, the star of Saturday’s Risen Star Stakes, has exited the race with full focus on the Louisiana Derby, according to trainer Mike Maker.

The gutsy bay son of Fusaichi Pegasus won the second consecutive graded stakes of the meet after taking the Lecomte Stakes on Jan. 17 – both under jockey Miguel Mena.

No word yet on whether International Star will be returned to Florida for training. He's been with Maker at Gulfstream Park. The colt has never put in a workout at Fair Grounds but obviously loves the surface.
