G.R. Carter Jr. rode An Absolut Diamond to a three-quarter length victory in the second of four Zia Derby (RG2) trials at Ruidoso Downs on Saturday.

A homebred gelding by champion Ketel Won trained by Mike Joiner for owners Sandy Farrris, Marc Jungers, and Lisa McMinn, An Absolut Diamond covered his 400-yard trip in :19.321 and recorded the fastest qualifying time for the $128,375 Zia Derby final on Sunday, July 28.

Second-fastest qualifier Brotherman, a homebred gelded son of Jesse James Jr, won the first trial by a half of a length in :19.340 under jockey L. Salvador Martinez. Emmitt Burelsmith Jr. trains Brotherman for owner Craig Joplin.
