Description: International Star (NY) B , C, foaled March 14, 2012 (Fusaichi Pegasus – Parlez, by French Deputy) jumps to the top of the Kentucky Derby Points Leaderboard with his victory in the 8.5 furlong $400K Grade II Risen Star Stakes at Fair Grounds Race Course February 21, 2015. Jockey Miguel Mena sent International Star from his outside post to gain the rail around the Clubhouse turn. War Story had the rail going into the Clubhouse turn and may have been bothered by International Star when he came over in front of him. The rider of War Story did Object to the Stewards after the race, but the Objection was not allowed. That pair settled into stride up the back stretch as St. Joe Bay and Hero Of Humor were on the pace. International Star gained ground from along the rail and War Story had to go four wide as the field turned into the stretch. St. Joe Bay left a narrow opening at the rail for International Star and he went on to win by a head over a determined War Story. Keen Ice closed for the show, 1/2 length behind War Story. International Star is 4-2-0 from 8 starts, 3 of those Graded Stakes victories, and he has earned $560,979. International Star is owned by Ken and Sarah Ramsey, was bred by Katharine M. Voss & Robert T. Manfuso, and he is being trained by Michael Maker. The Kentucky Derby Points awarded for winning the Risen Star were 50 to take International Star to the top of the Kentucky Derby Points Leaderboard with 71 total points.
