On The Low Down Seeks Third Stakes Victory in Rio Grande Senor Futurity
RSS Feeds Sunday, September 3, 2017
On The Low Down, a chestnut son of Dome owned by Dale Taylor, Bobby McQueen, and Suzanne Kirby, will seek his third stakes victory in Monday’s 5 1/2-furlong, $135,395 Rio Grande Senor Futurity (R) for New Mexico-bred colts and geldings at Ruidoso Downs.

Trained by Todd Fincher, On The Low Down was a $43,000 yearling purchase at last year’s New Mexico-Bred Sale. The gelding has earned $149,527 from five starts, and his three wins include 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 Thoroughbred Futurity (R) at Ruidoso on June 24.

On The Low Down drew post 4 and will be ridden by Tracy Hebert. His nine opponents include Ruis Racing LLC’s Hermano, a bay gelding by Attila’s Storm and the $100,000 sale topper at last year’s New Mexico-Bred Sale. Hermano is one of five starters produced by the winning and stakes-placed 14-year-old Dome mare Hang Glide, and he is a full brother to multiple stakes winners Thermal and Reaper and stakes winner Another Brother.

Hermano drew post 10 and will be ridden by J. Martin Bourdieu for trainer Greg Green.

Other contenders include trial winners Hollywood Henry and Roll On Becton. A $17,500 yearling purchase, Hollywood Henry is a son of Roll Hennessy Roll trained by Henry Dominguez for owner Bennie A. Vanecek. The colt broke his maiden with a wire-to-wire, 7 1/2-length victory in the last of three Senor Futurity trials on August 12.

Hollywood Henry is one of two winners from as many starters foaled by the winning 10-year-old Gone Hollywood mare Ringback. The colt drew post 2 and will be ridden by Frank Reyes.

Roll On Becton is trained by Todd Fincher for owners Dale Taylor, Carey Taylor, and Jon Hogg. The homebred chestnut son of Roll Hennessy Roll is a full brother to Twixy Roll, the winner of the 2014 Rio Grande Senorita Futurity (R) at Ruidoso Downs and New Mexico Cup Juvenile Fillies Stakes (R) at Zia Park.

Roll On Becton made his debut with a one-length win as the 2-1 favorite in the second trial. The gelding drew post 9 and will be ridden by Alfredo Juarez Jr.
