Wagonfullofdividends, a bay son of Pyc Paint Your Wagon campaigned by RTM Stables LLC and Shauna Dunn, kept his record perfect with a clear 3 1/2-length victory in Saturday's $104,376 Bitterroot Futurity at Sandy Downs.
Ridden by Jesus Canales for trainer Mark Hanson and sent to post as the 5-2 favorite in the field of 10, Wagonfullofdividends went 350 yards in :17.032, earning a 117 speed index and breaking by 2/10ths of a second the previous track record set by Lajolla Famosa on August 14, 2010. The colt was winning for the fourth time in as many outs, and the $41,750 winner's share of the purse from his second stakes win pushed his earnings to $56,450.
Wagonfullofdividends was the second-fastest qualifier. He was bred in Texas by Randy and Sandy Coleman, and he was a $25,000 buy at last year's Heritage Place Yearling Sale in Oklahoma City. His dam, Ms Athenas Dividend, is a winning and stakes-placed 10-year-old daughter of champion Brimmerton who was a finalist in the 2009 Texas Classic (G1) and Remington Park (G1) futurities.
Wagonfullofdividends' resume includes a wire-to-wire, two-length win in the 330-yard, $30,000 Rocky Mountain Spring Classic Futurity at Pocatello Downs on May 29.
