Df Fabulous Jackie Is The Best In The Ruidoso Maiden Stakes Trials

RUIDOSO DOWNS, NM—JUNE 6, 2021—Df Fabulous Jackie, a 3-year-old filly, broke on top and never looked back to win the second race and was clocked with the fastest time of the day of :17.573 seconds for 350-yards during trials for the $96,968 Ruidoso Maiden Stakes (not black type) Sunday at Ruidoso Downs Race Track.

The track was fast and there was 12 MPH headwind on a mostly sunny day.

The Maiden Stakes is designed for Quarter Horses that were maidens up to and through March 1 of this year.

Trained by Jimmy Collier, the black filly is by second-crop sire One Fabulous Eagle out of Eyema Candy Tree by Oak Tree, won for a second time in four lifetime starts for owners Richard Ford and Fred Sorenson. An $18,000 Ruidoso Select Yearling Sale graduate, her previous win came at Remington Park on March 26.

“She got moving pretty quickly, and I never saw another horse until after the finish line,” said jockey Noe Garcia Jr. “It was an all-around solid performance, and she continues to improve every trip.”

Painted Snowclouds, under jockey Jorge Torres, posted the second fastest time in the closing trial.
