Partnered by Kathy O’Hara, who had won on him at his two previous starts, Spaceboy again set the pace in front and was tenacious on the line to win by a short half head.

A $200,000 Magic Millions purchase for his trainer from the Aquis Farm draft, Spaceboy showed ability from the start placing behind Tassort, Unite and Conquer and Splintex at his first three starts as a juvenile.

It took him a while to break through for a win, but Spaceboy has now built a solid record with four wins and eight placings from 15 starts netting over $320,000 in prizemoney for connections.

Spaceboy is the best of two winners from Danzero mare Miatoko, a half-sister to the dam of stakes-winner Testashadow from the family of Group I winner and sire Zoustar.

Miatoko has a weanling filly by Deep Field, who is the most successful second crop sire in history by winners with some 84 winners this season.

The son of Northern Meteor stands at Newgate Farm at a fee of $55,000.
