Hit It a Bomb, the winner of the 2015 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf and resident of Spendthrift Farm, was represented by his first winner from his first starter on June 21 when Weston took a Santa Anita Park maiden special weight, BloodHorse reports.

Weston a bay gelding, got to the lead early in the 4 1/2-furlong race, and finished gamely to win by 1 1/4 lengths under jockey Drayden Van Dyke. Trained by Ryan Hanson for himself and Chris Drakos, Weston finished the race in :52.27 seconds over a fast main track.

Bred in Kentucky by EVADI Farm Team, Weston is out of the stakes-placed Dixie Union mare Elke. His third dam is the Grade 1 winner Trumpet’s Blare.

He also won the Star Appeal Stakes in Ireland as a juvenile. The horse came back at three to place in a pair of Irish group stakes races.
