One Jess Streakin Commanding Winner of All American Quarter Horse Congress Futurity

CINCINNATI, OH—OCTOBER 8, 2017—Racing fans in Ohio may not have many opportunities to watch live Quarter Horse racing, but on Sunday they were treated to an impressive victory by One Jess Streakin in the $15,000 All American Quarter Horse Congress Futurity.

The winner took a strong lead early in the race and extended the margin of victory to two and a half lengths over a sealed, sloppy track at Belterra Park. One Jess Streakin ($2.10) and jockey Oscar Macias covered the 350-yard race in 17.337 and earned a 105 speed index.
