Sent to post at odds of 12-1, third-fastest qualifier Paint Me A Sinner responded with a half-length win in Saturday's 400-yard, $405,585 Dash For Cash Futurity (G2) at Lone Star Park.

Paint Me A Sinner handled a muddy and sealed track with skill, as the bay daughter of Pyc Paint Your Wagon stopped the timer in :19.624 while recording a 99 speed index. Ricardo Garza-Cruz rode the filly for owner Claudia Avila and trainer Rolando Almanza.

Paint Me A Sinner was coming off of a three-quarter length victory in one of 12 Dash For Cash Futurity trials on September 22. The filly was bred in Texas by Bob and Jerry Gaston, and she was a $14,500 purchase at last year's Texas QHA Yearling Sale in San Antonio.

Paint Me A Sinner is out of Shades Of Sin Tacha, a homebred winning 6-year-old daughter of First Down Dash. The filly has won three of five starts and has earned $170,676.

Mpshinning, the fastest qualifier and 7-10 favorite, finished second and was followed by Mr Corona Crystal, Some Temting Dash, Parti Wagon, One Famous Stone, FM Im A Zatanaz Too, Acoronas Toast, and Im Sporting Rock. Washita Jack was scratched.
