T.C. Fleck's Just Another Natural extended her win streak to three with a one-length victory in Saturday's $435,680 TQHA Sale Futurity (RG2) at Retama Park.
Prepped by Leon Bard, Just Another Natural covered 350 yards in :17.614 and posted a 103 speed index under jockey Francisco Calderon. The $193,878 winner's share of the purse from the homebred Furyofthewind filly's first stakes win pushed her earnings to $213,078.
Just Another Natural was bred in Texas and is out of La Natural Rona, a winning 13-year-old daughter of the Streakin Six stallion Streakin La Jolla. The second-fastest qualifier, the filly has won three of five starts, including her TQHA Sale Futurity trial on July 14.
Ebrima finished second and was followed officially by Shakem Bye Perry, Runaway Heroine, Lj Fastest Time, fastest qualifier and 5-2 favorite Krash Course, Giobito, Sugars First Love, The Bunny Goes On, and Illusively Going. A 15-1 longshot, Illusively Going crossed the wire sixth but was disqualified and placed last for impeding the forward progress of several of her rivals.
