Teller Baja kept her perfect record intact in Saturday’s 330-yard, $888,000 Remington Park Futurity (RG2) at Remington Park.

Racing for Juan Medina of Zapata, Texas, Teller Baja defeated V Power by a half of a length in :16.752 while scoring her third win in as many outs and first stakes victory. Agustin Silva rode the homebred Teller Cartel filly for trainer R.L. “Rick” Robinson.

“She broke in a little, but after that she straightened up and we got the money,” said Silva.

The overall fastest qualifier, Teller Baja was coming off of a 1 1/4-length win in the first of 12 trials on April 8, the first night of Remington Park Futurity trials. The filly banked $355,200 from the final to push her earnings to $375,778.

Teller Baja returned a $4.40 win mutuel as the 6-5 favorite in the full field of 10. V Power, the 7-2 second choice, completed a $22.40 ($2) exacta.

Eye De Man, As and Js, Major Freight, Spicey Hero, One Corona Episode, B Double U, Political Bliss, and B A Mighty Dream completed the order of finish.
