Andres Guerra's Relentless Dynasty, a 25-1 longshot, scored an upset victory in Saturday's $474,750 Texas Quarter Horse Association Sale Futurity (RG2) at Retama Park.

Prepped by Adrian Huitron and ridden by Victor Urieta Jr., Relentless Dynasty defeated 8-5 second choice and fastest qualifier Perry Secret by a neck while covering his 350-yard trip in :17.586. The Hes Relentless colt earned $211,264 from his second win in three outs and first stakes score.

Relentless Dynasty was the fifth-fastest qualifier off of his third-place finish in a TQHA Sale Futurity trial on July 12.

"All the talk on the backside was about the two big horses," said Huitron, referring to graded stakes winners Perrys Secret and Trump My Record, the 11-10 favorite. "But we knew we had a really good colt.

"He ran under the lights for the first time in the trials, and it cost him a few spots in the qualifying," the trainer added. "So we scheduled a few works under the lights to get him better prepared for tonight."

Relentless Dynasty was bred in Texas by William Fowler Jr., and he was a $7,500 purchase at last year's TQHA Yearling Sale. His dam, Winning Dynasty, is a winning 9-year-old daughter of champion Fdd Dynasty.

Relentless Dynasty has earned $216,667.

Domino CD finished third and was followed by Lj Lightning Cartel, Trump My Record, Coronados Lil Lady, Jess Dashin Along, Eos Shez My Secret, Medicci, and My Favorite QH.
