Three Times A Ladye, a daughter of champion Tres Seis owned by 21 Partnership, posted the fastest winning time from 11 300-yard training races at Ruidoso Downs on Tuesday.

Trained by Ricardo Armendariz and ridden by J.R. Ramirez, Three Times A Ladye won the 11th training race by 1 1/4 lengths from One Gold Eagle V in :16.007. The filly was a $60,000 purchase at last year's Ruidoso Select Yearling Sale, and she is paid into all three of Ruidoso Downs Grade 1 futurities.

Three Times A Ladye was bred in Texas by Bobby D. Cox. Her dam, the First Down Dash mare Shesa First Ratify, won the 2010 Lubbock Stakes (G2) at Zia Park and was runner-up in the '09 All American Futurity (G1).

Johnny Trotter's Famous Fire Eagle recorded the second-fastest winning time from Tuesday's schooling races, as the One Famous Eagle colt covered 300 yards in :16.016. James Flores rode Famous Fire Eagle for trainer Mike Joiner.

Famous Fire Eagle was bred by Trotter, a resident of Hereford, Texas. The colt is out of Beautiful Fire, a winning and graded stakes placed 9-year-old Walk Thru Fire mare and half sister to world champion Be A Bono. Famous Fire Eagle is also paid into the All American, Rainbow, and Ruidoso futurities.
