Priceless Feature Returns in Mr Jet Moore

Stakes winner returns for aged horse campaign.

Q-Racing Journal
April 4, 2013

Last year’s Heritage Place Derby (G2) winner, Ed Melzer’s Priceless Feature, makes his 2013 debut against Oklahoma-breds when he heads the $50,000 Mr Jet Moore Stakes over 350 yards on Saturday evening at Remington Park.

Priceless Feature (Feature Mr Jess-Southern Price by Corona Cartel) won six of nine starts last year while racing against top-tier company at Remington Park, Ruidoso Downs and Lone Star Park.

At Remington Park, in addition to his Heritage Place Derby score, he finished fourth in the $246,000 Remington Park Oklahoma-bred Derby (R). He maintained his hot form at Ruidoso Downs when he held the lead in the $900,000 Rainbow Derby (G1) until the last stride and finished second by a head behind two-time champion Ochoa. Then at Lone Star Park last fall, he wrapped up his sophomore campaign with a third-place run against older horses in the Refrigerator Handicap (G1).

Weetona Stanley and William Smith’s Fast Prize Jordan (PYC Paint Your Wagon-Fast Prize Doll by Mr Jess Perry) should be sharp after winning the Mighty Deck Three Handicap in his return from a six-month layoff. The Brian Muse-trained gelding won by three quarters of a length with a sharp :12.91 time for the 250 yards.

Fast Prize Jordan qualified for the Grade 1 Texas Classic and Heritage Place futurities two years ago and made only two starts last year.

Colby Cartel (Teller Cartel-Show Me The Wire by Special Effort) and Wagons West (PYC Paint Your Wagon-De Elegant Dash by First Down Dash) race as an entry for owner Wade Helton and trainer Alfredo Gomez.

Colby Cartel comes off a fourth-place run in the $136,000 Oklahoma Derby and Wagons West finished fourth in the Mighty Deck Three and then returned to win his maiden.
