RACE RECORD: The sport’s reigning champion 2-year-old and 2-year-old filly, Flash And Roll last year qualified to the Ruidoso Futurity (G1), then won the Golden State Million (G1) and Los Alamitos Two Million (G1). She qualified to the All American Derby by romping by 2 ¼ lengths in Trial 10 and posting the eighth-fastest qualifying time. 

BREEDER: From a boutique breeding program based in Blanco, Texas, Julianna Hawn Holt breeds top runners, with 180 starters earning more than $9.3 million.

Since 1989, the jockey has ridden 1,394 winners from 10,390 starters and the earners of more than $22.8 million. Other top runners include the likes of JLS Dasn And Zoomn ($514,345), Jess A Saint ($504,086), Ivan James ($463,647) and Blue Corazon ($420,400). 

PEDIGREE: The late First Moonflash was a top racehorse, earning $969,828 and a championship title, as well as five track records and four world records. He was also a top sire, with seven crops to race earning more than $16.6 million. They include All American Futurity winner Handsome Jack Flash and All American Derby winner Too Flash For You.
