Runningallnight, a gray son of Stel Corona owned by Dalia F. Aranda, is the fastest qualifier to the July 29, $59,850 John Deere Ruidoso Juvenile Challenge Stakes (G3) at Ruidoso Downs.
Competing in the fourth of six 350-yard trials on Friday, Runningallnight defeated second-fastest qualifier Feature Me Gorgeous by a neck in :17.735. Raul Herrera rode the colt for trainer Jose Luis Galvan.
Runningallnight was bred in California by Martha "Mimi" Wells. He made his debut with a wire-to-wire, 1 1/2-length victory as the 4-5 favorite in a 350-yard, $10,000 maiden-special-weight dash at SunRay Park on June 4.
