GRANDE PRAIRIE, AB—AUGUST 3, 2019—After two trials on Saturday afternoon, Light Footed emerged as the fastest qualifier to the John Deere Grande Prairie Juvenile Challenge.
Light Footed ($5.80) and jockey Ricardo Moreno won the second trial. They covered 350-yard trial in 18.555 and cleared the rest of the field by a length.
The aptly named filly broke her maiden in the trial, which was just her second career start.
The second and third fastest qualifiers exited the first trial, separated by only a nose and two one-thousandths of a second.
Double Cruise ($6.70) and jockey D.I. Benitez finished in first place and were the second fastest qualifiers with a time of 18.716. Double Cruise is trained, owned and bred by Tom Kenway.
The 2-year-old colt is by Bd Cruiser and is out of Eye Cruise, by Eye Take Time.
Double Cruise has never been out of the money in three career starts. In addition to Saturday’s trial win, won the Alberta Stallion Stakes Futurity at Century Mile and ran second in the trial for that futurity, also his career debut. He has earned over $21,000.
The second-place finisher and third fastest qualifier, Quarter Sawn, posted a final time of 18.718. Caesar Cervantes had the call for owner and trainer Wesley Oulton.
Quarter Sawn broke his maiden in the trial for the Alberta Stallion Stakes Futurity and finished seventh in the final; he debuted at Remington Park in April.
