Owner Ahmed Zayat celebrated his 52nd birthday in style Aug. 31 when even-money choice Jojo Warrior led them start to finish to take the $100,000 Torrey Pines Stakes (gr. III) from Del Mar.
Jojo Warrior, ridden aggressively from the rail by Martin Garcia, was a resounding gate-to-wire winner of the $200,000 Summertime Oaks (gr. II) in her first start over a route of ground June 21 at Santa Anita Park.
Champion and classic winner Bernardini came through with his first winner when his daughter A Z Warrior won at Hollywood Park July 15 in her first start.
The first foal for grade II winner J Be K is a colt out of multiple stakes-placed Carson Jen born Feb. 4 at Tom VanMeter's Stockplace Farm.
