ALTOONA, IA—AUGUST 30, 2019—Two trials determined the field for the $35,000-added Adequan Prairie Meadows Derby Challenge on Friday night, and the top two finishers from the $78,050 Canterbury Derby in July will rematch as the first and second qualifiers to the Derby Challenge in Prairie Meadows.
Fastest qualifier Apollitical Mogul won the second trial by a length with a time of :19.728 in the 400-yard trial and earned a speed index of 96.
Apollitical Mogul ($3.00) was ridden by Berkley Packer for trainer Jason Olmstead and owner Tom Maher. The filly was bred in Texas by Mercy Hinklins Horse Farm, LLC, by Apollitical Jess and out of Cast Cartel, by Corona Cartel.
This will be her fourth stakes appearance. Last fall, she qualified to the Valley Junction Futurity at Prairie Meadows and finished second in the final. She was also second in the NCQHRA Futurity at Canterbury last summer and was second in the Canterbury Park Derby this summer.
She has only finished out of the money three times in her 15 career starts and has earnings of over $80,000.
The first trial produced the second and third fastest qualifiers, Jess Wagon P with a time of 19.765 and Mansory in 19.775. The pair were separated by just a nose at the wire.
Jess Wagon P recently won her first stakes race, the Canterbury Park Derby, a head in front of Apollitcal Mogul.
This was Mansory’s first start at Prairie Meadows. As a 2-year-old, he finished fourth in the Mystic Lake Northlands Futurity at Canterbury.
