Trial Races Offer Competitive Fields


Walther, Aleta, THE JOURNAL RECORD


Although Quarter Horse trial races are not popular betting races with many fans, don't let today's trials for the $300,000 Remington Park Derby discourage you from a day at the races this afternoon.

The first seven trial races offer the most competitive fields I've seen this summer. Several of the races offer three and four horses capable of winning. The toughest to handicap are the second, third and seventh races. The 1988 Black Gold Champion, Dorasun, 1989 Canterbury Derby Winner Osceola Warrior, 1989 Rainbow Derby runner-up My Dash and six out of seven winner Dashing Blue Jeans face off in the second race.

Trinity Meadows' track record holders Fabulous Figure, four for four over Equitrack, and Los Perezs Jet Van will go head and head in the seventh.

Unfortunately, the American Quarter Horse Association and the Daily Racing Form still can't seem to get it together, as many past performance charts are still missing race lines.

"They (The Daily Racing Form) just don't care about Quarter Horse racing," said Racing Secretary David Frizzell. "We know that every time a horse runs here the AQHA (American Quarter Horse Association) sends race updates immediately and the form still doesn't get them in."

Example: My Dash in the second race - her charts show she hasn't raced since August of 1988. The truth is, this good Jack Brooks trainee won her trial race for the rich Rainbow Derby last month and came back to run second in the championship.

Chart updates that are missing in the "Form" can be picked up at the track daily. Below is an update on horses in today's races which experienced trouble in their last races or horses who have unrecorded workouts over Equitrack. This information should be considered while handicapping.

Horses To Watch:

- Race 2 - Osceola Warrior, unrecorded work Sunday, 440 yards in 22.90 from the gate. Also broke three lengths behind field and still won the Canterbury Derby June 11.

- Race 4 - Catcha Lark, fractious in the gate, but still won handily June 11.

- Mr Hot Change, fractious in the gate Friday.

- Race 5 - Lucky Brother, broke slowly for the second time in a row June 10.

- Gotta Be A Dash, veered to the outside at the break May 18.

- Petruchio, bucked leaving the gate May 15.

- Race 6 - Tiny's Super Lark, broke in sharply to impede rivals and was disqualified from first to eighth Saturday.

- Sids Bullet, bucked all the way down the lane Friday.

- Let Me Dance, impeded shortly after the start June 11. …
