August 10, 2018
Larry J. Boudreaux's Mpshinning, a Louisiana-bred son of Mr Piloto trained by Adrian Huitron, is the fastest qualifier to the August 26, $154,300 Gillespie County Fair Futurity.
Ridden by Luis Vivanco, Mpshinning on Saturday won the last of nine 350-yard trials by 2 1/4 lengths in :17.517. The colt was winning for the second time in three outs and increasing his earnings to $16,200.
Mpshinning was bred by Jon and Donna McPherson. The colt is out of Shinningperrydash, an unraced 8-year-old daughter of the First Down Dash stallion First To Shine. Boudreaux acquired Mpshinning for $27,000 at last year's Louisiana QHBA Yearling Sale.
Other prominent finalists include Whitetail Welding LLC's Dees Jetting Diva, the second-fastest qualifier. A homebred Jet Black Patriot filly trained by Jose Luis Sanchez III, Dees Jetting Diva has won all three of her outs, including the 330-yard, $112,000 Old South Futurity at Delta Downs in May.
