Grade 1 Winner Cyber Monday to Stand at Lazy E Ranch

GUTHRIE, OK—AUGUST 19, 2021—Grade 1 Ruidoso Futurity winner Cyber Monday will stand at Lazy E Ranch in Guthrie, Oklahoma upon his retirement, announced today by Carlos Lujan representing the partnership of owners L.O.S. LLC and Abelardo Gallegos.

The 3-year-old colt is set to compete in the Grade 1 All American Derby trials on Sunday at Ruidoso Downs.

"I was taken with this horse when I saw him win his Ruidoso Futurity trial so impressively. Then he validated that superior performance by coming back two weeks later to win the $1,000,000 final over a stellar field," Lazy E Ranch co-manager and AQHA Past-President Butch Wise said. "I immediately initiated a dialogue with the owners because he is the kind of stallion prospect that excites breeders AND he is by Favorite Cartel," Wise added.

In the last five racing seasons (2017-2021), no other Grade 1 winning stud colt has earned more money during their two-year-old season at the renowned New Mexico track.

Cyber Monday won 4 of his 5 outs at Ruidoso as a two-year-old including the $1,000,000 Ruidoso Futurity G1 in 2020. Cyber Monday opened his career by posting the fastest time among 131 head in 21 two-year old schooling races at Ruidoso Downs on May 7, 2020.

He followed that performance up two weeks later by winning his trial and qualifying for the Ruidoso Futurity G1 on the first day of trials while running into an 11 mph headwind. Two weeks later he easily triumphed in the $1,000,000 final by nearly a length with G1 performers Jettz ($440,000-G1) finishing second and Misscandymountain ($200,000-G1) third.

In his Rainbow Futurity trial, Cyber Monday stumbled out of the gate and then circled the field and qualified for the $1,000,000 Rainbow Futurity G1. In the final, he was fourth behind the undefeated AQHA Racing World Champion Whistle Stop Cafe SI-99, $2,137,019.

In his trial for the $3,000,000 All American Futurity, Cyber Monday again stumbled from the gate, then rallied to win, for the fourth time at Ruidoso in his 2 year-old year but failed to qualify.

Cyber Monday finished his two-year-old season with an impressive 4 wins in 5 outs and earnings of $516,241 and was in Champion 2 Year-old voting contention.

A finalist in a roughly run $100,000 Rainbow Invitational this year, Cyber Monday defeated Ruidoso Derby G1 finalist KH Sonny B $61,000 and 2020 Champion Apolitical Gold $996,009 in their trial. He has won or placed in 6 of 8 starts and earned $528,268, to 3 2021.
