LunaTImePrepared to perfection by trainer Graham Motion, the lovely Malibu Moon filly LUNA TIME showed no rust in her first start in four months, turning in a powerful performance to win the first stakes of her career in Delaware Park’s Grade 3 Obeah Stakes. The traditional prep for the track’s signature race, the Grade 1 Delaware Handicap, the Obeah was a tour-de-force for LUNA TIME. Dismissed by the public when sent off at odds of more than 15-1, she charged up on the far turn to take the lead and was never challenged when coming home a three-length winner.

It was the second start of the year for Dorsey Brown and Richard Palmer’s 4-year-old homebred filly, and her second stakes showing. She finished third in the Maryland Racing Media Stakes at Laurel in February in her stakes debut. From nine lifetime starts, LUNA TIME has won four times, with a second and a third, for earnings of $195,073.

Unraced at 2, LUNA TIME broke her maiden at Saratoga and won twice in allowance company at Laurel at 3. She is the 14th graded stakes winner developed by Dark Hollow Farm, which handled the mating, foaling and raising of the filly. LUNA TIME is the second winner from the first two foals out of HIGH MOMENT, a stakes-winning daughter of High Yield who is also the dam of a 2015 2-year-old colt by first-year sire TRAPPE SHOT who sold for $230,000 at the Barretts Select sale. As yet unnamed, the Trappe Shot colt initially sold out of the Dark Hollow consignment for $127,000 at the Keeneland September Yearling sale.

HIGH MOMENT produced a colt by Tapizar in 2014, and was bred back to Trappe Shot. Sadly, the mare died of foaling complications after delivering a Trappe Shot filly this past April, who survived.
