Edited press release
Rainbow Futurity (G1) winner MM Fourinthemorning will start from Post 10 in Monday's 440-yard, $3-million All American Futurity (G1), and Grade 1 winner Jess Move You drew Post 5 for Sunday's 440-yard, $1.238-million All American Derby (G1), both of which will be contested at Ruidoso Downs.
The post draws took place on Monday at Ruidoso Downs. Mark and Annette McCloy’s homebred MM Fourinthemorning, the top-ranked 2-year-old on the AQHA Poll, will be ridden by Ricky Ramirez, who had his choice of three horses, all of whom are trained by Blane Wood.
A gelded son of champion Mr Jess Perry, MM Fourinthemorning has blossomed with three consecutive wins. The streak includes a late-charging three-quarter length victory in the 400-yard, $1-million Rainbow Futurity in July.
Jess Move You is trained by Rudy Valles for owners Ricardo Bernal and Reymundo Resendez, and he is the fifth-rank older horse and top-ranked 3-year-old in the AQHA Poll. Jess Move You won his first two starts of the season, topped by his three-quarter length win in the Grade 1, 400-yard Ruidoso Derby in June.
Jess Move You was the fourth-fastest qualifier to the All American Derby, as he won his trial by a half of a length in :21.414 in spite of a bobble at the start.
