RSS Feeds Monday, August 14, 2017

On The Low Down, a two-time stakes winner trained by Todd Fincher for owners Dale Taylor, Bobby McQueen, and Suzanne Kirby, is one of nine confirmed finalists to the Septembe 4, $135,395 Rio Grande Senor Futurity (R) for state-bred colts and geldings at Ruidoso Downs.

Ridden by Tracy Hebert, On The Low Down won the first of three 5 1/2-furlong heats in by 1 1/4 lengths in 1:04.79. The chestnut son of Dome, a $43,000 yearling buy at last year’s New Mexico-Bred Sale, has won three of five starts, including the April 16, 4 1/2-furlong Copper Top Futurity (R) at Sunland Park, and the 5-furlong, $141,000 Mountain Top Futurity (R) at Ruidoso on June 24, and he has banked $149,527.

On The Low Down was bred by Brad King and Todd Fincher. The gelding is one of two winners from as many starters produced by Speedin Excess, a winning 11-year-old daughter of In Excess (IRE) who ran second in the 2008 Barretts Debutante Stakes (R) during the Los Angeles County Fair meet at Fairplex Park.

Roll On Becton, a homebred son of Roll Hennessy Roll trained by Todd Fincher for owners Dale Taylor, Carey Taylor, and Jon Hogg, made his debut with a one-length victory as the 2-1 favorite in the second heat. Alfredo Juarez Jr. rode the chestnut gelding, who defeated Wheredoesthecashgo by one length in 1:03.98.

Roll On Becton is one of two winners from three starters produced by the winning 15-year-old Mutakddim mare Twixy, and he is a full brother to 2014 Rio Grande Senorita Futurity (R) winner Twixy Roll.

Frank Reyes rode Hollywood Henry to a clear 7 1/2-length win in the third trial. Prepped by Henry Dominguez for owner Bennie A. Vanecek, the Roll Hennessy Roll colt was coming off of a second-place finish, 5 1/4 lengths behind winner P J’s Gold, in the 4 1/2-furlong, $45,000 Totah Stakes (R) at SunRay Park on June 12.

Hollywood Henry was bred by Fred Alexander and was a $17,500 yearling buy at last year’s New Mexico-Bred Sale. The colt is one of two winners from as many starters foaled by the winning 10-year-old Gone Hollywood mare Ringback.

Other prominent finalists include Ruis Racing's Hermano. the $100,000 Thoroughbred yearling sale-topper at the 2016 New Mexico-Bred Sale, the Attila's Storm colt finished second in the third trial in his career debut.

The top three finishers in the three trials are confirmed Senor Futurity finalists. The 10th finalists will be determined by a blind draw from the following fourth-place finishers: The Great Dome (first heat), Loosewheelslouie (second heat), and Blaze Runner (third heat).
