Red Raider Returns in Mountain Top Thoroughbred Futurity Trials
RSS Feeds Tuesday, June 3, 2014
A total of 21 New Mexico-bred 2-year-olds, including stakes winner Raider Red, have been entered in Friday’s 5-furlong Mountain Top Thoroughbred Futurity (R) trials at Ruidoso Downs.

A homebred gelding by the Artax stallion Diabolical, Raider Red will be making his first start since April 12, when he scored a 3 1/2-length victory in the colts and geldings division of the 4 1/2-furlong, $77,052 Copper Top Futurity (R) at Sunland Park. Raider Red has won both of his outs and has earned $43,626 for his owners, Brad King and Dale Taylor.

Todd Fincher trains Raider Red, who will be ridden by Alfredo Juarez from post 2 in the last of three trials.

Fincher will be represented by seven entries in Friday’s Mountain Top trials, including Roll On Red Raider, a gelded son of Roll Hennessy Roll who ran seventh as the odds-on favorite in the Copper Top Futurity. Racing for Alan Miller, Melanie Miller, and Dale Taylor, Roll On Red Raider scored a 5 3/4-length victory in his Copper Top trial on March 18.

Aldo Arboleda has been named to ride Roll On Red Raider from post 5 in the second heat.

Fincher will also send out Diabolical Dame, a daughter of Diabolical racing for Joe Dee Brooks, Scott Bryant, and Derrol Hubbard, and R.D. Hubbard’s Glide Path, a homebred Attila’s Storm colt who will be making his debut in the first trial.

Diabolical Dame is coming off of a second-place finish to Miss B R H in the $77,953 fillies division of the Copper Top Futurity. Dusty Shepherd will ride the filly from post 4 in the third trial.

Glide Path is a full brother to Thermal and Reaper, the last two winners of the Mountain Top Futurity final. The bay colt drew the rail post and will be ridden by Shepherd.

The top three finishers in each trial will meet in the 5-furlong, $155,974 Mountain Top Futurity final on Saturday, June 21. A shake will be held in the racing office to determine the 10th starter.
