Runaway Jeans, center of photo, wins the first Ruidoso training race.
The quickest time from Monday’s races came in the seventh heat when Joker On Jack was clocked in :15.735 with Esgar Ramirez up. The PYC Paint Your Wagon son is owned by the partnership of Helton, Wade and Jarrett, and was a $17,000 Ruidoso Select Yearling Sale purchase. He is a half brother to stakes winners Runaway Fortune (by Runaway Winner, $97,316) and Start The Commotion (by First Down Dash, $30,190). The gelding has raced once, finishing seventh in a Remington Park maiden race on March 11.
The next step for many of the 2-year-olds competing in the training races is the trials to the $600,000 Ruidoso Futurity (G1) on May 25, the opening day of the Ruidoso Downs summer racing season.
