The 400 yard contest ended in a three-way photo with Ferrari Gt and She Looks Racy, but clearly shows Famous Little Reba the victor by a nose. Final time was 19.705 over a fast track, a speed index of 94.

“It’s hard to duplicate something like this,” said owner Johnny Trotter. “We brought her down here, paid her late [supplement] and here we are.”

Her third win from six career starts earned Famous Little Reba $179,410 boosting her bankroll to $187,230.

Famous Little Reba paid $18.20, $7.40 and $4.40. Place went to Ferarri Gt who paid $4.40 and $3.80, and She Looks Racy paid $4.00 to show. Volcom Flame, Js Abel Dasher, Dash Don’t Cheat, Django B, Teves, and Sissy Cartel completed the order of finish. Nucky was a late scratch.

For jockey Ricky Ramirez, it was his second trip to the winners circle tonight, a graded stakes double.

This was also the second win in the Grade 1, Dash for Cash Futurity for both Ricky Ramirez and Johnny Trotter. They won the race with Dynastys First Call in 2013.
