Making just his second career start, Wdc Woody B Fast sprinted to a wire-to-wire, three-quarter length win in the New Mexico Breeders' Futurity (RG3) at SunRay Park on Sunday.
Wdc Woody B Fast went 350 yards in :17.476 and earned a 90 speed index while racing with a reported 12-mph tail wind. Martin Felix rode the bay son of Woodbridge, who is owned by Barton Ranch Stables LLC and trainer Blake Rust.
Wdc Woody B Fast made his debut with a one-length victory one of four New Mexico Breeders' Futurity trials on April 28. The gelding was bred by Denton Crozier of Hobbs, New Mexico, and he is Signs Of Speeding, an unraced homebred 12-year-old daughter of Vital Sign.
Wdc Woody B Fast's second dam, the Twaynas Dash mare Twas Speeding, won the 1993 Oneida County Fair Futurity in Idaho and ran second in the '94 Boise Derby (G3) at Les Bois Park.
The winner's share of the $110,213 New Mexico Breeders' Futurity purse bumped Wdc Woody B Fast's earnings to $53,600.
Osbaldo Blue Diamond, fastest qualifier and 17-10 favorite Bug Daddy Cartel, Frangelica, Soxx Ar, A Diamond Mercedes, Jans Cartel, Big Daddy Kp, Flash Of Victory, and Redd Metal completed the order of finish.
