A homebred son of Proud Citizen, Mark Valeski cemented his status as a contenderfor the 2012 U.S. classics when he finished second by a nose in the Grade 2 Risen Star Stakes at Fair Grounds in New Orleans. Mark Valeski subsequently finished second in the Louisiana Derby (G2) before scoring a breakthrough graded stakes win in the Peter Pan Stakes (G2) on May 12 at Belmont Park.

Owner-breeder Brereton C. Jones named the colt after an employee of the Seaview Hotel in Bal Harbour, Fla. Valeski has been the head of the pool area at the hotel for more than 40 years and got to know Jones and his family during their annual vacations at the resort.
