RSS Feeds Wednesday, January 22, 2014
Handsome Jack Flash, a New Mexico-bred gelding by leading freshman sire First Moonflash, is the 2013 American Quarter Horse Association champion 2-year-old.

The announcement was made during Wednesday’s AQHA champions award ceremony at Heritage Place in Oklahoma City.

Racing for Debra J. Laney, Norma Alvarez, and Brenda Alvarez, Handsome Jack Flash earned $1,482,271 from five starts, and his four wins included a neck victory in the 440-yard, $2.6-million All American Futurity (G1) at Ruidoso Downs on September 2, and a half-length score in the 400-yard, $409,434 Zia Futurity (RG1) at Ruidoso on July 28.

Handsome Jack Flash was bred by Laney, a resident of Tularosa, New Mexico. The brown gelding was one of only two Quarter Horses -- and the only 2-year-old -- to earn more than $1 million in 2013. The other, All American Derby (G1) winner Feature Hero, ended the season with $1,290,050 in earnings and was voted AQHA champion 3-year-old and 3-year-old gelding.

The other AQHA racing champions are -- Last To Fire (world champion, aged gelding, and aged horse), Check N Fetch (aged mare), Feature Mr Bojangles (aged stallion), Brace For Bernal (3-year-old colt), Matabari (3-year-old filly), Kates Dynasty (2-year-old filly), Five Bar Cartel (2-year-old colt), Honoroso (distance champion), One Famous Episode (Mexico champion), Corderoy Road (Canada champion), Italia Gold (South America champion), Paul Jones (trainer), Cody Jensen (jockey), Burnett Ranches (breeder), and Johnny Trotter/Burnett Ranches (owner).
