Horse Profile - Givemeaminit
Born on March 26th, 2015, Givemeaminit competed as a two-year-old during 2017 and was sired by Star Guitar, a 12-time stakes winner, out of Powerful Nation. Breeder Clear Creek Stud, LLC sold him to Valene Farms for the bargain price of $20,000.
Despite humble beginnings in a low fetching price, Givemeaminit was put into strong position for success. Trainer Dallas Stewart was selected to train him, and Hall of Fame jockey Javier Castellano is Givemeaminit's regular rider.
He competed for the first time as a two-year-old colt in a 2017 maiden special weight at Saratoga in late July and finished as a runner-up to Sporting Chance ahead of Ezmosh.
Nearly two months later, Givemeaminit would make his stakes debut against some of the elites by running in the 2017 Hopeful Stakes in September. He would finish a respectable third with Sporting Chance again securing victory, and the highly touted Free Drop Billy coming in second.
Testing the Grade-I waters a second time, Dallas Stewart pointed his two-year-old trainee towards the 2017 Breeders’ Futurity and this would not be his day. Givemeaminit finished well behind in fifth as Free Drop Billy scored the decisive win.
Running out against the best juvenile colts in the 2017 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile, Givemeaminit was sent out with long 60/1 odds. Caught behind the main pack for much of the race, Javier Castellano urged on his horse to rally down the homestretch. Though too far behind to compete with eventual winner Good Magic, who placed ahead of pace-setter Solomini and favorite Bolt d’Oro, Givemeaminit sailed in as the fourth place finisher.
Over 4 starts, Givemeaminit has been relatively competitive given his pedigree and his connection’s decision to run him in multiple Grade-I races. With a 0-1-1 record, the colt has now earned $166,600. As he continues to mature and prosper through the winter, Givemeaminit is bound to be found punching above his pedigree in the 2018 Road to the Kentucky Derby prep races.
