GRAND PRAIRIE, TX-–NOVEMBER 22, 2022–
Jess My Hocks, a Grade 1-winning homebred son of Kiss My Hocks racing for Tom and Kathleen McNally, will make his first start in nearly six months in Saturday's 440-yard, $100,000 Refrigerator Invitational Championship (G1) at Lone Star Park.

Jess My Hocks is coming off of a third-place finish, three lengths behind winner and reigning world champion Danjer, in the 440-yard, $250,000 Debbie Schauf Remington Park Championship (G1) on May 28. The 5-year-old gelding has earned $138,936 from four races this season, and his two wins include a half-length victory in the April 30, $100,000 Leo Stakes (G1) at Remington Park.

Jess My Hocks drew post 6 and will be ridden by Agustin Silva for trainer Michelle Hurdle. The gelding's 10 opponents include Hesa Party Wagon, a graded stakes winning 4-year-old son of Hes Relentless owned and trained by Juan Manuel Baeza. Hesa Party Wagon will be stretching out in distance off of his head victory as the 17-10 favorite in the October 9, 350-yard James Isaac Hobbs Stakes (G2) at Zia Park.

Hesa Party Wagon was a two-time stakes winner during the Ruidoso Downs summer meet. The gelding drew post 2 and will be ridden by Christian Ramos.
