Rdustys Fury Wins Hialeah Feature
Juvenile filly earns third win and first stakes victory of her career.
December 1, 2013
Womack Cavender Farms’ Rdustys Fury, saddled by last season’s top local trainer Brandon Muniz and ridden by Jesse Lee Levario, came charging late on the outside to win Sunday’s first running of the $28,250 Mockingbird Stakes at Hialeah Park.
The 2-year-old gray filly, installed as the 5-2 morning line favorite, provided her backers with an 8-1 overlay price and a $19.20 win mutuel after she collared front runner JA Jess Elegance to score by three-quarters of a length in a time of :13.060 for 250 yards.
“Brandon (Muniz) told me she was a good filly,” Levario, riding Rdustys Fury for the first time, said. “He told me to hold on tight and keep her mind on running.”
The winner, who scored back-to-back victories at Remington Park earlier this year, tallied for the third time in her sixth lifetime start. She claimed the winner’s share of $16,950 and upped her career earnings to $50,443. The Oklahoma-bred daughter of Furyofthewind was bred by Bob and Deanna Williams.
After Rdustys Fury, the order of finish in the Mockingbird was: JA Jess Elegance, JA Gols Fireband, Blues Cartel, Aidens Corazon, Ms Kalies Fortune, TTT Kellys Cowboy, Jess Like Zoom, PM Runaway Dash and Blue Jean Harley.
Earlier on the Sunday afternoon program, the 2-year-old gray gelding Eye Go Streakin won for the first time as he scored a solid one-length victory in the second of two trial heats for the $50,000-added FQHRA Stallion Stakes Futurity (R) on December 22.
The Ajax Downs invader, a son of Streakin Six Cartel, was bred in Florida by Flying Fisch Farm Inc., but his only two lifetime starts coming into the trials were north of the border in Ontario, Canada, in September and October of this year.
Eye Go Streakin covered 350 yards in :17.575 to post the fastest time of the 10 runners now qualified for the final in three weeks.
He gave his connections, owners MLP “From The Inside” Inc., trainer Stanley Webb and jockey Roger Buening, their first victories at Hialeah Park.
The 10 qualifiers for the 2013 FQHRA Stallion Stakes Futurity are: Eye Go Streakin (17.575), Spittin Jessie (17.755), A Tac Bunny (17.783), Zoomininthewind (17.789), Streakin Gatorgirl (17.876), TMF Good Cartel (17.882), Jazzing Dreamer (17.884), Anna Delovely (18.054), Corona Perry (18.099) and JA Gols Playboy (18.147).
