On The Low Down Returns in Rio Grande Senor Futurity Trials
RSS Feeds Friday, August 11, 2017
On The Low Down, a multiple stakes winning son of the Storm Cat stallion Dome, is one of 22 New Mexico-bred colts and geldings entered in Saturday’s 5 1/2-furlong Rio Grande Senor Futurity (R) trials at Ruidoso Downs.

A $43,000 yearling buy at last year’s New Mexico-Bred Sale, On The Low Down is trained by Todd Fincher for owners Dale Taylor, Bobby McQueen, and Suzanne Kirby. The chestnut gelding has earned $147,127 from four outs, and his resume includes a 1 1/4-length victory in the April 16, 4 1/2-furlong Copper Top Futurity (R) at Sunland Park, and a 7 3/4-length win in the 5-furlong, $141,000 Mountain Top Futurity (R) at Ruidoso Downs on June 24.

On The Low Down drew post 6 and will be ridden by Tracy Hebert in the first of three trials. His seven opponents in the first heat include Southwestern Charm, a homebred son of Southwestern Heat trained by Joel Marr for owners J. Kirk and Judy
Robison of El Paso, Texas. A half brother to four-time stakes winner Back Seat Roll, Southwestern Charm made his debut with a 4 1/4-length victory in a 5 1/2-furlong maiden-special-weight race for New Mexico-breds at Ruidoso on July 23.

Southwestern Charm drew the rail post and will be ridden by Miguel Fuentes.

Paul Jenson’s P J’s Gold, a homebred son of the Mr. Greeley stallion Mr. Gold Mover, drew post 2 and will be ridden by Enrique Gomez for trainer Henry Dominguez in the first trial. The bay colt will be stretching out in distance off of his wire-to-wire, 5 1/4-length victory in the 4 1/2-furlong, $45,000 Totah Stakes (R) at SunRay Park on June 12.

Roll On Becton, a homebred Roll Hennessy Roll gelding trained by Todd Fincher for owners Dale Taylor, Carey Taylor, and Jon Hogg, will make his debut in the second trial. Roll On Becton is out of the winning 15-year-old Mutakddim mare Twixy and is a full brother to 2014 Rio Grande Senorita Futurity (R) winner Twixy Roll.

Roll On Becton drew post 2 and will be ridden by Alfredo Juarez Jr.

Wheredoesthecashgo, a finalist in the Mountain Top Futurity, drew post 5 and will be ridden by Miguel Fuentes Jr. for owners J. Kirk and Judy Robison and trainer Joel Marr in the second trial. A chestnut homebred son of Southwestern Heat, the gelding is a half brother to stakes winners Liberty Lover and Diabolical King.

The third heat has drawn seven runners, topped by Nowiks Dome, a gelded son of Dome racing for Carl Nowik and trainer Gerald Marr. A $2,000 yearling buy at last year’s New Mexico-Bred Sale and a three-length maiden winner in his debut on June 30, Nowiks Dome is a half brother to Strike It Up, a two-time listed stakes winner at Delaware Park and Laurel Park in 2001.

Nowiks Dome drew post 2 and will be ridden by Jose L. Torres. The gelding’s six opponents include Ruis Racing LLC’s Hermano, the $100,000 sale-topper at last year’s New Mexico-Bred Sale. Hermano is a full brother to multiple stakes winners Thermal and Reaper and 2016 New Mexico Cup Juvenile Championship (R) winner Another Brother.

The top three finishers in the three Senor Futurity trials will meet in the Rio Grande Senor Futurity final on September 4. The 10th finalists will be determined by a draw between the three fourth-place finishers.
