Owners Tom and Bill Maher and their trainer Jason Olmstead have the advantage with the two-fastest qualifiers – Lethal N First and Coronas Concierge – to the $40,150 North Central Quarter Horse Racing Association Futurity at Canterbury Park on Sunday.

Owned by Tom Maher, Lethal N First (First Moonflash-A Lethal Corona by Corona Cartel) won his maiden in his third start when he won the third of three trials by 1 1/2 lengths in :18.113 for 350 yards. In his previous starts, he was second in his Mountain Top Futurity trial for New Mexico-breds at Ruidoso Downs. He also has a second-place run in a Remington Park maiden race.

Owned by Tom and Bill Maher, Coronas Concierge (Corona Cartel-Dianetogetcha by Mr Eye Opener) raced to her second win from four outs when she set the second-fastest qualifying time of :18.331. She raced to a neck win over fourth-fastest qualifier My Girls Toasted (Toast To Dash-Girling by First Down Dash).

Coronas Concierge scored her other win when she won her maiden at first asking back in April at Remington Park.

Brenda Reiswig’s Red Velvet Hero (Valiant Hero-Red Sticks by Sticks And Stones) was second to Lethal N First in their trial with the third-fasted qualifying time of :18.339 for 350 yards. The Victor Hanson-trained filly won her maiden in her first start at Remington Park and then scored a pair of second-place finishes, including her NCQHRA Futurity trial.
