Description: Noble Bird (KY) CH , C, foaled April 6, 2011 (Birdstone - Anyhow, by Tiznow) was coming off a heart-breaker in the Grade II Alysheba but came back running to win the 9 furlong $500K Grade I Stephen Foster Handicap at Churchill Downs on June 13, 2015. Jockey Shaun Bridgmohan rated Noble Bird off the pace set by Paganol into the Club house turn and up the back stretch. Paganol tired rounding the far turn and Noble Bird ran by him and had a commanding lead as they turned for home. Lea came after Noble Bird, however, Noble Bird was too good today, he wins by a neck. Hoppertunity got the show 5 1/2 lengths further back. Noble Bird gets his first major victory and ran his record to 4-3-0 and now has earned $531,278. The Stephen Foster is a Breeders' Cup World Championships Challenge Series race and Noble Bird gets a ticket into the BC Classic October 31st at Keeneland.
