NM-Bred PJ Chick In Black is Fastest All American Futurity Qualifier
RSS Feeds Friday, August 17, 2012
PJ Chick In Black kept her perfect record intact following her 5 3/4-length victory in Thursday's All American Futurity (G1) trials at Ruidoso Downs.

Ridden by Esgar Ramirez for trainer John Stinebaugh, PJ Chick In Black went 440 yards in :21.081 in the 24th of 26 trials. The registered New Mexico-bred daughter of the Strawfly Special stallion Desirio races for Denny Bowen, Susan Taylor, John L. Smith and Lynne Smith.

PJ Chick In Black has raced exclusively in New Mexico, where the filly has all five of her starts and has earned $428,339. Her stakes record includes a one-length win as the fourth-fastest qualifier in the 300-yard, $251,359 New Mexican Spring Futurity (RG2) for state-breds at Sunland Park on April 8, and a neck victory as the fourth-fastest qualifier in the 350-yard, $600,000 Ruidoso Futurity (G1) on June 9.

“She just finally put together a perfect race,” said Bowen. “She's a whale of a horse.”

PJ Chick In Black was bred by Fredda Draper of Ruidoso Downs, New Mexico. After the Ruidoso Futurity, Draper sold half interest in the filly to Jack Smith Farms, and she was moved from the barn of Carl Draper to that of Stinebaugh.

PJ Chick In Black was one of eight All American hopefuls who were supplemented to Thursday's trials for $50,000. She will next race in the $2.4-million final on Labor Day, September 3, where she will likely be the favorite.

"If she is the favorite, it works," said Bowen. "She is training outstanding."

The other nine qualifiers (with their trial times) are: Jess A Zoomin (:21.246), Krash Cartel (:21.251), Just Wanna Corona (:21.286), Native Tea Rose (:21.358), One Dashing Eagle (:21.369), Aha Moment (:21.385), BP Cartel Alibi (:21.385), Mr Perry Cartel (:21.400), and Sudden Thoughts (:21.404).
