Take Notice topped a full field of 12 in a seven furlong maiden special weight contest May 28 at Churchill Downs, leading all the way to defeat Kearny County by a neck in a very valiant effort (VIDEO).

Take Notice, a 4-year-old making just his third lifetime start, set a sensible pace, getting the half-mile in :46.29 seconds. He continued to lead by a length until deep stretch, when he had to dig in to hold off the late-closing runner-up. 

The winner is trained by D. Wayne Lukas and is out of the stakes-winning Mineshaft mare Platinum, who is a sister to Las Virgenes S. (G1) winner A. P.  Adventure.
