A first-out, determined head winner July 30 at Delaware, Kenny Had a Notion didn’t fare as well when seen again in the Sept. 26 First State Dash S. even after working three straight bullets over Laurel’s main track. He caught a sloppy Delaware surface that day, got bumped, and threw in the towel to finish sixth. Redemption was sweet when switched to the turf for an impressive win in the Jamestown S. Kenny Had a Notion broke on top, but let Cool Enough (Tamarkuz) on his outside take command. Hounding that one through a first quarter of :22.41, the bay moved to the outside himself, tackled Cool Enough coming off the turn as the half slipped by in :45.37, then romped home much the best.

Five-time winner Darting’s last reported foal is a now-yearling colt by Divining Rod, who sold at this week’s Fasig-Tipton Midlantic sale for $20,000 to Julie Davies. Darting’s granddam is a graded stakes-producing mare by Ack Ack, notable as not too many mares by the 1971 Horse of the Year and late Claiborne stallion are remain close up in pedigrees.
