Science Friction is the first winner for Ocean Knight
Longshot Scientific friction overcame a tough start in race two on October 2 at Gulfstream Park to win in top style, giving the winner ranked stakes and the Louisiana-based freshman stallion Ocean knight its first winner.
The bay filly owned by Big Bang Racing and trained by Armando de la Cerda won the inaugural $ 23,000 race for fillies by 1 1/2 length. The final time was 1: 27.09. She won on her second start.
Raised in Florida by Debbie Walsh, Science Friction is out of the winner Imperialism mare Political Miss. The mare earned $ 162,135 as a racehorse and has now produced two winners from as many races. The family produced Cryptic, a 3rd place winner by Roberto. RDZ Farm purchased Science Friction for $ 4,000 in the October one-year-old Ocala Breeders’ Sale 2020 sale from Getaway Farm’s shipment.
Ocean Knight is a 3rd grade son of Curlin of Stormy Atlantic Ocean Goddess mare. He won his only start at 2 and at 3 won the Sam F. Davis Stakes (G3) at The Bottoms of Tampa Bay for Stonestreet Stables and Coach Kiaran McLaughlin. He was also third in Discovery Handicap (G3) at age 3 and third in Kelso Handicap (G2) at 4. He retired with a 4-3-2 record on 15 starts and won $ 390,000.
Ocean Knight can be found at Averett Farm in Louisiana for $ 4,000.
