Freshman Oklahoma stallion The Visualiser was represented by his first winner on June 29 when his 2-year-old daughter Color of Truth won a maiden special weight contest at Lone Star Park. Lindy Wade piloted the filly to a wire-to-wire victory by 1 ¾ lengths for conditioner Allen Milligan. Color of Truth, who was bred in Oklahoma by Dr. Warren Center’s Center Hills Farm and runs for Joel and Ali Rush, has earned $16,334 with a record of 3-1-1-0.

A son of leading sire Giant’s Causeway, The Visualiser hit the board in 13 of his 23 career starts and earned $136,072. He won on both turf and dirt and finished second in the $270,391 Canadian Derby (G3) going 1 3/8 miles on the main track.

The Visualiser, who is out of the stakes-winning Holy Bull mare Smokey Mirage, stands at Mighty Acres, a division of Center Hills Farm, near Pryor, Oklahoma.

Also at Lone Star, Henry Witt Jr.’s homebred Witt’s Five broke his maiden at first asking on June 22 to become the first winner for Witt’s stallion Five Demon Bag. Texas-bred Witt’s Five won the 2-year-old special weight sprint by 1 ¼ lengths with David Cabrera riding for trainer Amanda Barton.
