Winners Version Colt is Fastest NM Spring Futurity Qualifier
RSS Feeds Friday, March 14, 2014

Quemados Version, a colt by Winners Version making his career debut for owner Juan Daguer, was a prompt 5-2 favorite in the third of eight New Mexican Spring Futurity (RG2) trials at Sunland Park on Friday.

Ridden by Esgar Ramirez for trainer H. Armando Orozco, Quemados Version covered 300 yards in :15.034, and his margin of victory was 2 3/4 lengths from non-qualifier VGC Brroom. The homebred colt’s clocking makes him the fastest qualifier for the $209,956 Spring Futurity final on April 6.

Quemados Version is out of A Royal Lead, a winning New Mexico-bred daughter of Sixes Royal.

Second-fastest qualifier Dungarees Version, one of only two previous winners among the 81 trial entries, won the fifth heat by three-quarters of a length as the even-money choice. Under Ramirez, who rode the gelded son of Winners Version for owner Gary L. Thompson and trainer Emilio Cadena III, Dungarees Version made his 300-yard trip in :15.115.

Ramirez also rode the third-fastest qualifier, Jess Bordeaux. A $37,000 buy at last year’s New Mexico-Bred Yearling Sale at Ruidoso Downs, the Jesse James Jr colt won heat 2 by one length for owner Thompson and trainer Cadena.
