Kim K the filly wins $100,000 Debutante in 2nd career race

LOS ALAMITOS, Calif. (AP) - Kim K made a splash in her second career start, winning the $100,000 Barretts Debutante at Los Alamitos.

The 2-year-old filly named for Kim Kardashian won by three lengths on Saturday. She paid $8 and $3.40.

Ridden by apprentice jockey Heriberto Figueroa, Kim K ran 6 1/2 furlongs in 1:16.28. She battled 4-5 favorite Square Peggy and 19-10 second choice Naughty Tiger through the first half-mile before pulling away. There was no show wagering.

Trained by Peter Miller, Kim K was purchased for $330,000 by owner Rockingham Ranch. She finished fifth in her career debut on Sept. 2 at Del Mar.

Brian Trump, manager for Rockingham Ranch, has said he named the filly for Kardashian because he admires how the social media maven has used her popularity and platform to do better for various people and causes. Trump says he attended high school with Kardashian's sister, Khloe, and was at one time friendly with her brother Rob.

Kim K has career earnings of $57,200. She was sired by Will Take Charge and the mare Trip for A.J.

Miller describes Kim K as "a beautiful filly and she's got a really good mind. I think she has a bright future."
