Ignored Returns in Mountain Top Thoroughbred Futurity Trials
RSS Feeds Tuesday, July 12, 2016
Ignored, a homebred son of The Way Home racing for Steve Prather and Bessie Prather, is one of 19 New Mexico-bred 2-year-olds entered in Friday’s 5-furlong Mountain Top Thoroughbred Futurity (R) trials at Ruidoso Downs.

Ignored will look to get back on the winning track after his second-place finish, a three-quarters of a length behind winner El Tule, in the June 18, 4 1/2-furlong Totah Stakes (R) for New Mexico-bred colts and geldings at SunRay Park. Trained by Todd Fincher, Ignored has earned $71,854 from three starts, and his resume includes a 2 1/2-length win in the 4 1/2-furlong Copper Top Futurity (R) at Sunland Park on May 3.

Ignored is one of six winners from seven starters produced by Spectacular Place, a winning 17-year-old daughter of the Cox’s Ridge stallion Out Of Place. Francisco Giles will ride Ignored from post 1 in the second of three trials

Ignored’s six opponents in the second heat include El Tule, a son of the Hennessy stallion Touchdown Ky trained by Philip Sanchez for owner Jose Luis Chavez. The colt brings into his Mountain Top trial a two-race win streak that includes the Totah Stakes.

El Tule drew post 6 and will be ridden by Ricardo Jaime.

Another Brother, a homebred Attila’s Storm gelding trained by Fincher for owner R.D. Hubbard, is the morning-line favorite in the third trial. Another Brother made his debut with a second-place finish, 3 1/2 lengths behind El Tule, in a 4 1/2-furlong maiden-special-weight dash for New Mexico-breds at Ruidoso Downs on June 4.

One of four starters foaled by the winning and stakes-placed 13-year-old Dome mare Hang Glide, Another Brother is a full brother to two stakes winners: Thermal, a winner of three state-bred stakes from 2012-15, including the 2012 Mountain Top Thoroughbred Futurity (R), and Reaper, a four-time stakes winner from 2013-15 and winner of the ’13 Mountain Top Thoroughbred Futurity (R).

Another Brother drew post 3 and will be ridden by Glen Murphy.

The top three finishers from the three trial will meet in the $175,000 Mountain Top Futurity final on July 31. A shake will determine which of the fourth-place finishers will also race in the final.
