May 9, 2013

Spackman Racing and Lin Melton's Dynasty Red roared the top qualifying time for the Bitterroot Derby Wednesday evening as Les Bois Park hosted three trial races.

The 10 fastest qualifiers will return on Saturday, May 25 to contest the $30,000-est. final over 400 yards.

Making his first start as a 3-year-old multiple graded placed Dynasty Red was much the best as he scampered over the 400 yards in a quick :19.796, a 102 speed index. Also conditioned by Melton, the FDD Dynasty gelding picked up his fourth career win in 11 starts pushed his bankroll to $47,756.

Anselmo Aguilar bred the brown gelding in Mexico from the Corona Cartel mare Red High Heels. Last season he finished third in the Juvenile Northwest Challenge at Les Bois Park and third in the Wild West Futurity and Holiday Handicap, both at Los Alamitos Race Course.

Furious Jess defeated Heza Dynasty by half-a-length in the second trial to also break the 20 second barrier and post the second fastest time of :19.988. Ron Moosman trains the Fly Jess Fly gelding out of Shes Furious, by Special Leader, for Gloria Martineau.

Bred in Utah by The Running A LLC, Furious Jess has won the Bitterroot Futurity at Les Bois Park last May. Uriel Dominguez was aboard the three-time winner of nearly $45,000.

Tony Greaves lightly raced homebred PF Flyair kicked off the first trial with a 1 ¾ length effort to record the third fastest clocking of :20.077. The Dashair gelding was making his first start since winning the Sweetwater Futurity on Labor Day last year.
