January 15, 2016
Eulice Pujol's Who Jack, the third-fastest qualifier and 13-10 favorite, earned his first stakes win in Sunday's $100,580 Florida Quarter Horse Racing Association Stallion Derby (R) at Hialeah Park.
Under jockey Osdany Leal, who rode Who Jack for trainer Sergio Concepcion, the gelded son of the Chicks Beduino stallion Jumpn covered 350 yards in a wind-aided :17.568. Who Jack's winning margin was a neck from fastest qualifier Fast Flyin Fireball.
Who Jack was bred in Louisiana by Leigh Lipinski and Leverne Perry. The gelding broke his maiden with a wire-to-wire, two-length victory in his FQHRA Stallion Derby trial on December 28.
Campaigned in Louisiana and Florida, Who Jack has won two of five starts, and the $42,244 winner's share of the purse from his first stakes win pushed his earnings to $54,844.
Ahs Uncle Si, Country Mans Jazz, Foust, Kittyna, Watch My Wallet Loto, Blushing First Down, Jess Strong, and Mister Swagger James completed the order of finish.
