Anchor & Hope Farm stallion Editorial continued his fast start at stud when Alottahope became his first stakes winner in rousing fashion on Saturday, July 30 at Laurel Park.
Alottahope won the Star de Naskra Stakes as much the best, stalking the early pace and drawing off in the stretch to win by 15 lengths while covering the seven furlongs in 1:22.91 under Jevian Toledo. Owned by No Guts No Glory Farm and trained by Jerry Robb, Alottahope is a half-brother to the Robb-trained two-time Maryland-bred champion Street Lute (by Street Magician), an earner of $617,520 with eight stakes wins. He was bred by Dr. and Mrs. Thomas Bowman and Dr. Brooke Bowman out of Alottalute (by Midnight Lute).
Editorial is an 8-year-old half-brother to Uncle Mo, the 2010 Eclipse champion for best 2-year-old male who has ranked as one of the top stallions in the nation over the past five years. Uncle Mo’s progeny include 2016 Kentucky Derby-G1 winner Nyquist, 2022 Belmont Stakes-G1 winner Mo Donegal, and two-time Breeders’ Cup champion Golden Pal. Editorial’s dam, Playa Maya (by Arch), was stakes-placed twice in her career; his sire is War Front, a Grade 1 winner and sire of 23 Grade 1 winners, seven millionaires and eight champions.
Editorial raced twice at Gulfstream Park in 2017, with one victory and one second-place finish. Upon his retirement, Editorial began his stud career at Anchor & Hope Farm in Port Deposit, where he continues to stand for owner Climax Stallions. From five runners in his first crop, Editorial has three winners, two are stakes performers. In addition to Alottahope, Editorial’s daughter My Thoughts finished second in the 2021 Maryland Million Lassie. Editorial stood the 2022 season for $2,500 live foal.
