RACE RECORD: Winning the first trial on the first day, Hes Limitless secured himself a spot in the $3 million All American Futurity with a :21.816. The gelding in his prior start was second to Tough Dynasty 123 in the $100,000 Rainbow Juvenile Stakes at 32-1 odds. He debuted in a Remington Park Oklahoma-bred Futurity (R) trial, finishing a troubled second, then contested a troubled Rainbow Futurity trial to make it to the juvenile.
BREEDER: The partnership that raced Hes Limitless’ champion dam bred this Grade 1 finalist. They offered the horse as an embryo at the 2015 Heritage Place Winter Sale, repurchasing on a bid of $90,000, then again offered him as a yearling at the 2016 Ruidoso Select Yearling Sale, repurchasing at $105,000.
OWNER: Breeding partner Jack Smith of Comber, Ontario, acquired the horse in entirety in September 2016.

PEDIGREE: Sire Corona Cartel is the sport’s leading living sire, with progeny earnings of more than $55.5 million, including 2005 All American Futurity winner Teller Cartel.
