GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas (Friday, September 23, 2016) – 118 two-year-olds have been entered Saturday, September 24 for a chance to make it to the 19th edition for the Grade 2, Dash for Cash Futurity to be held on Saturday, October 8, and a share of the estimated $450,000 purse offered. There will be a total of 12 trial races. First race post time is 6:35 p.m. CDT.

Some of the juveniles competing are graded stakes winners, some are un-raced. Some have only a couple of starts and for whatever reason, haven’t shown their real talent and speed yet. With all of these aspects, it sure promises to be an exciting night of racing you won’t want to miss!

Only the 10 fastest youngsters will earn a spot in the starting gate for the lucrative Futurity final. A few of the top earners competing are:

Double A Ranch’s Paint My Pilot has drawn into the first trial. A colt by Pyc Paint Your Wagon was second by a neck in the Grade 1 Rainbow Futurity in his most recent start.

Her race record is 5-1-2-0 for earnings that total $199,938. She has the national leading trainer in Judd Kearl and will have jockey Jose Amador Alvarez in the irons.

The eighth race has a couple of stand outs as well, CoCoMo Racing’s V Power, a gelding by Valiant Hero. The Dustin R. Cox trainee was second in the Grade 2 Remington Park Oklahoma Bred Futurity last April and in May qualified for the Grade 1 $1 Million plus Heritage Place Futurity where he dead heated for fifth in the final.
