NM-Bred PJ Chick In Black Draws Post 8 For All American Futurity
RSS Feeds Saturday, September 01, 2012
PJ Chick In Black, a registered New Mexico-bred filly by the Strawfly Special stallion Desirio, drew post 8 in Monday's 440-yard, $2.4-million All American Futurity (G1) at Ruidoso Downs.

Quarter Horse racing's richest and most prestigious race, the All American Futurity will be run as the 11th race on Ruidoso Downs' 12-race program. Scheduled post time for the race will be 5:15 p.m. (MDT).

PJ Chick In Black is the fastest qualifier and 2-1 morning-line favorite. The filly has earned $428,339 while racing exclusively in New Mexico, and her five wins in as many starts include the 350-yard, $600,000 Ruidoso Futurity (G1) on June 9, and the 300-yard, $251,349 New Mexican Spring Futurity (RG2) for state-breds at Sunland Park on April 8.

PJ Chick In Black races for Dennis C. Bowen, Susan Taylor, and Jack Smith Farms and is one of three All American finalists trained by John Stinebaugh. Esgar Ramirez, who rode PJ Chick In Black in her 5 3/4-length trial victory on August 16, will ride the filly on Monday.

PJ Chick In Black's main competition is expected to come from Grade 1 winners One Dashing Eagle and BP Cartels Alibi. One Dashing Eagle shipped to Ruidoso Downs after he scored a 1 1/4-length victory in the 350-yard, $1.041-million Ed Burke Million Futurity (G1) at Los Alamitos on June 24, while BP Cartels Alibi won two of three starts during the Remington Park spring meet, including the 350-yard, $1.048-million Heritage Place Futurity (G1) on May 26.

The winner of this year's All American Futurity will earn $1.2 million and become Quarter Horse racing's newest millionaire. The complete lineup, in post position order including jockey assignments and morning-line odds – Sudden Thoughts (Rodrigo Aceves), 15-1; Just Wanna Corona (Freddie Martinez), 6-1; Native Tea Rose (Cody Jensen), 8-1; Mr Perry Cartel (Felipe Garcia-Luna), 20-1; Jess A Zoomin (G.R. Carter Jr.), 10-1; One Dashing Eagle (Ramon Sanchez), 5-1; Krash Cartel (Rodrigo Vallejo), 6-1; PJ Chick In Black (Esgar Ramirez), 2-1; BP Cartels Alibi (Ricky Ramirez), 4-1; and Aha Moment (Saul Ramirez Jr.), 15-1.
