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.
