The victory improved Triple Vodka’s overall record to five wins in six outings with a bankroll of $213,870. The Texas-bred finished his 2-year-old campaign with an undefeated record, including a win in the TQHA Sale Futurity (RG2) at Retama Park. He suffered his first career loss in his 3-year-old debut with a third-place run in a Sam Houston Derby (G3) trial, and then he crossed the wire second in his Old South trial before being elevated to first after the original winner was disqualified for interference.
Triple Vodka, who was bred by K.A. Norris and Peters Racing, is the first foal out of the Stoli mare Newport Lily. The mare's second foal is Hiclass Vodka, a Hiclass La Jolla colt who qualified to this year’s Oklahoma Futurity (G2).
Antonio Carrizales’ Jess Fly With Me, the even-money favorite with three wins in four prior starts on the year, finished a clear second. Sizzlin Cartel, the winner of last year’s Firecracker Futurity (G2) at Delta, took third for owner J.E. Jumonville Jr.
