Aptly named Alert the Press put his name in the headlines once agai, with a 2 1/4-length win in the Bachman S. at Fonner Park on March 19. The Mass Media 3-year-old was also a stakes winner last year, taking the Capitol City Futurity at Lincoln Race Course.
In the Bachman, Alert the Press went right to the front, set a sensible pace and widened in the stretch under no pressure from his rider. He has now won three of five starts. He was bred in Florida by Cheryl Hurn.
Mass Media is Florida's fourth-ranked second-crop sire. He was Florida's leading freshman sire of stakes winners (2) and stakes horses (5) in 2010.
