The ninth winner from the first crop of FIRST SAMURAI is TRUBS, who broke his maiden in frontrunning style in the 3rd race at Louisiana Downs, a six furlong maiden special weight over the fast main track.
TRUBS opened up a clear lead early and was challenged around the turn. He found another gear and maintained a clear margin to the wire to win by a length and one-quarter.
A homebred racing for Claiborne Farm and Adele B. Dilscheider, TRUBS was produced by the Seeking the Gold mare, Hit. He is trained by Albert Stall, Jr.
