Moonflash Numbers has been moved into an official qualifier position for the $3 million All American Futurity (G1), which is September 3 at Ruidoso Downs, according to a ruling by the New Mexico Racing Commission.

On the second day of trials, the colt won the 14th trial by a neck in a time of :21.677. However, he was disqualified and placed ninth, which moved Rustys Miracle (:21.695) into the fifth and final qualifying position for the day.

On Thursday, a New Mexico Racing Commission hearing overturned the disqualification, returning Moonflash Numbers to a qualifying placing.

Rustys Miracle is now qualified for the $200,000 All American Juvenile.

Moonflash Numbers is a sorrel colt by First Moonflash out of the Strawfly Special mare Strength In Numbers. Bred by Grant Farms LLC, he is owned by Jose Soto of Horizon City, Texas. He was trained by Salvador Soto and ridden by Sergio Becerra.
