RSS Feeds Monday, August 15, 2016
Of the 296 2-year-olds entered in this week’s 440-yard All American Futurity (G1) trials at Ruidoso Downs, 13 are registered New Mexico-breds.

Fifteen All American Futurity trials will be contested on Friday and Saturday. Post time each day is set for 11 a.m. (MDT), with the last race scheduled to go off at 4:36 each day. The five fastest qualifiers from each day of trials will make the $3-million final on Labor Day, September 5.

Here’s a closer look at the New Mexico-breds entered in Friday’s All American Futurity trials:

Salwa 21 (first race): This homebred daughter of freshman sire Zulu Dragon will be making her career debut from post 10 for the 21 Partnership of El Paso, Texas. Sergio Becerra Jr. will ride the filly for trainer Antoinette Gonzales.

Itaintabout The Money (second race): This homebred colt by the Corona Cartel stallion Ive Done Did It is trained by Wes Giles for Celina Molina and Maria Barajas. Itaintabout The Money made his debut with a sixth-place finish at odds of 10-1 in a 350-yard maiden-special-weight dash on July 30.

Jordan (third race): A gelded son of Jesse James Jr, Jordan races for Carlos Soto of Tucson, Arizona, from the barn of trainer Juan M. Gonzalez. A maiden and a $26,000 buy at last year’s Ruidoso Select Yearling Sale, the gelding is a full brother to graded stakes winner Junior June Bug. Jordan has banked $250 from two outs.

Flash For Corona (fourth race): A finalist in the 400-yard, $409,000 Zia Futurity (RG1) for New Mexico-breds on July 31, Flash For Corona is trained by Juventino Ruiz for owner Martin Ibarra of Fort Stockton, Texas. His second dam, the Victory Stride (TB) mare Elans Victory, was a half sister to 1987 All American Futurity winner Elans Special. Flash For Corona sold for $44,000 at last year’s New Mexico-Bred Sale.

Mighty B Dragon (sixth race): Antoinette Gonzales trains this homebred son of Zulu Dragon for the 21 Partnership. The gelding will be making his career debut from post 2.

Wager Moonflash (ninth race): A daughter of champion First Moonflash, this filly sold for $40,000 at last year’s New Mexico-Bred Sale. Wager Moonflash has won one of four starts and has earned $6,921 for owner Jose Luis Ozuna of Plainview, Texas. Paul Jones trains the filly, whose dam, the winning Corona Cartel mare Wager On A Cartel, is a half sister to graded stakes winners Meteoric and Paladium.

Pernambuco (11th race): Pernambuco will face open company for the first time after finishing eighth in his career debut, a Zia Futurity trial on July 16. Juan M. Gonzalez trains the gray son of Chicks Regard for owner Valle Guadiana Corporation of El Paso, Texas.

Uber (11th race): Pernambuco will be joined in the 11th heat by Uber, a $6,000 purchase at last year’s New Mexico-bred sale. The Jesse James Jr colt, who ran second in a 350-yard Ruidoso Futurity (G1) trial in his debut on May 28, is trained by Eddie D. Willis for owners Cary Epley and Dam Racing.

First Kool Moon (13th race): The owner-trainer team of Jose Luis Ozuna and Paul Jones will be represented in the 13th race by this gelded son of First Moonflash and the Corona Cartel mare Lilly Cartel. The gelding has won his last two outs, including a 400-yard Rainbow Futurity (G1) trial on July 8. First Kool Moon’s second dam, Corona Kool, was the sport’s champion 2-year-old filly in 1999 and champion aged mare in ’01.

Here’s a closer look at the New Mexico-breds entered in Saturday’s All American Futurity trials:

Streakin Titan (third race): This First Moonflash colt races for David G. Valdez of Odessa, Texas, from the barn of trainer Gene Burden. A $9,500 purchase at last year’s New Mexico-Bred Sale, Streakin Titan is winless in two starts.

Machismo Moon (fifth race): Machismo Moon is coming off of a second-place finish, a half of a length behind winner Hot Indy Chick, in the 400-yard, $409,000 Zia Futurity (RG1) on July 31.
