Mm Fourinthemorning will put his three-race win streak on the line in Monday's 440-yard, $3-million All American Futurity (G1) at Ruidoso Downs.

One of three finalists qualified by trainer Blane Wood, Mm Fourinthemorning is a homebred son of Mr Jess Perry owned by Mark and Annette McCloy of Tatum, New Mexico. The gelding has earned $429,600 from four starts, all at Ruidoso Downs, and his win streak includes a three-quarter length victory in the 400-yard, $1-million Rainbow Futurity (G1) on July 22.

Mm Fourinthemorning drew post 10 and will be ridden by Ricky Ramirez.

"We were hoping for the 10 post," said Ramirez, who qualified all of Wood's finalists. "I just hope for the same outcome as the Rainbow. Hopefully, the big crowd doesn't bother him. It didn't in the Rainbow, it just wasn't quite as large."

Wood will also send out Apocalyptical Jess, a son of Apollitical Jess owned by Bill T. Robbins. The gelding broke his maiden with a dominating 3 1/4-length victory in his All American trial on August 17.

Apocalyptical Jess drew post 2 and will be ridden by Raul Ramirez Jr.
