On The Low Down Wins Mountain Top Thoroughbred Futurity
RSS Feeds Monday, June 26, 2017
On The Low Down led at every call en route to a convincing 7 1/2-length win in the June 24, 5-furlong Mountain Top Thoroughbred Futurity (R) for New Mexico-bred 2-year-olds at Ruidoso Downs.

Ridden by Tracy Hebert, On The Low Down covered his 5/8-mile trip in :58.13 after setting fractions of :21.66 and :44.78. Todd Fincher saddled the chestnut son of Dome for owners Dale Taylor, Bobby J. McQueen, and Suzanne Kirby.

On The Low Down was bred by Brad King and Todd Fincher. The gelding is one of seven official black-type stakes winners from 180 starters sired by Dome, an unraced 19-year-old son of the Storm Bird stallion Storm Cat and a half brother to two-time Grade 1 winner Dixie Union.

Dome has sired 104 winners and the earners of more than $5.5 million from 13 crops, including multiple stakes winners Glory Be Mine and ZZ Dome. The Kentucky-bred stallion is owned by Hardeman LLC, and he stands for a $2,500 fee at W.L. Mooring’s Double L Farm at Bosque, New Mexico.

On The Low Down is also one of two winners from as many starters produced by Speedin Excess, a winning 11-year-old daughter of In Excess (IRE) who ran second in the $108,200 Barretts Debutante Stakes (R) at Fairplex Park in Pomona, California, in ’08. The gelding’s third dam, the winning Viceregal mare Stray Flight, foaled two stakes winners: Ever Steady, a son of Steady Growth who won four stakes in Canada from 1989-90, including the $125,000 British Columbia Derby at Exhibition Park in 1990, and Sparrow Lake, an Apalachee filly who won two stakes at Woodbine in ’88.

On The Low Down traces back to his fourth dam, Barn Swallow, a daughter of the Royal Charger stallion Mongo who produced 1981 Prince of Wales Stakes winner Cadet Corps and was a half sister to Favorable Turn, the winner of three stakes from 1966-68, including the 1968 Donn Handicap.

On The Low Down has won two of our stakes, including the April 16, 4 1/2-furlong Copper Top Futurity (R) at Sunland Park, and the $70,691 winner’s share of the $141,382 Mountain Top Futurity purse bumped his bankroll to $147,127.

The 6-5 favorite in the full field of 10, On The Low Down returned a $4.40 win mutuel. Blazing Navarone, the 5-2 second choice, ran second to complete a $2 exacta dividend of $11.80.

Storm The Beach, The Great Dome, Gone Shoppin, Wheredoesthecashgo, Sparky Who, Western Style, Knowledge Is Power, and Belly Button Who completed the order of finish.

Blazing Navarone is a bay son of the Sultry Song stallion Song Of Navarone campaigned by Solitaire Stable and George E. Coleman. The colt has won two of three starts and has earned $43,756.

A gelded son of Attila’s Storm owned by J & SM Inc. of Fort Stockton, Texas, Storm The Beach was a $28,000 yearling buy at last year’s New Mexico-Bred Sale at Ruidoso Downs. Storm The Beach has won two of four outs and has banked $42,370, and his resume includes a third-place finish, 1 3/4 lengths behind On The Low Down, in the Copper Top Futurity.
