One of three finalists qualified by trainer Ken Grisham, A Super Sonic Boom broke his maiden with a victory in Sunday's $101,680 New Mexico Breeders' Futurity (RG2) at SunRay Park.
A Super Sonic Boom went 350 yards in :17.555 while aided by a 12-mph tail wind, and his winning margin was a neck from Frost Dalena. Jaime Parga Leos rode the homebred gray son of Big Daddy Cartel for owner Hubaldo Solis of Peralta, New Mexico.
A Super Sonic Boom was winning for the first time in three outs, and the $61,008 winner's share of the purse increased his earnings to $61,148. The gelding's sire is a 7-year-old winning son of Corona Cartel and was a finalist in the 2011 All American (G1) and Rainbow (G1) futurities at Ruidoso Downs.
A Super Sonic Boom's dam, Strawberryberryfast, is a 12-year-old daughter of Strawflyin Buds.
My Moon Crest ran third and was followed by Genuine High, Go Daddy Gone, fastest qualifier Hard Not To Sing, Corona Bud, 3-1 favorite KG Miracle, VMR Rebel, and Raise Your Style.
