Guys Storm Cloud, Thought It Through Top Qualifiers at Jerome Sunday

JEROME, ID—JUNE 10, 2018—The Jerome Fair hosted two sets of trials on Sunday— the Roche Equine Futurity for 2-year-olds and the EIHA Derby for 3-year-olds.

The top eight qualifiers from each set of trials will return to Jerome on Sunday, June 24 to contest a $7,000-added final in each race over a distance of 350 yards.

Coming off a fourth-place finish in the Pot O'Gold Derby at Sun Downs last month, Guys Storm Club picked up his second win in three starts to get the fastest qualifying time for the $7,000-added Roche Equine Futurity.

Ridden by jockey Jose Figueroa, the son of Guys Casanova Cowboy defeated Vf Elvira by one-length to get the top mark of :17.879 seconds, a 97 speed index with a 10 mph tailwind.

Trainer Uriel Arreola saddled the palomino gelding for owner Heidi Robinson. Bred in British Columbia by Wildwood Ranches, Guys Storm Cloud is from the Okey Dokey Dale mare Lightnin Storm Cloud.

Jockey Raymundo Torres rode the daughter of multiple stakes sire Foose to victory in the last trial for owner Jorge Murillo and trainer Farrol Cunningham. Edward Allred bred Thought It Through from the Pritzi Dash mare Just Think.
