Canterbury Park’s richest quarter horse race of the season, the $137,100 Mystic Lake Northlands Futurity was won by 2-year-old colt True for trainer and owner Hipolito Michel-Valverde. True, who paid $17.00 to win, was ridden by Ramiro Garcia. Final time for the 350 yard race was 18.086 seconds. Hes Resilient finished second, one-half length behind the winner. Tres Elegance, the wagering favorite, was bumped at the start and finished third.
“He broke just perfect,” Garcia said of the winner. “Stood in there well. He’s so cool, relaxed. He’s game. All game.”
Streakinlilwagon won the $83,000 Canterbury Park Quarter Horse Derby in 19.685 seconds for
trainer Jason Pascoe. Stormy Smith was aboard the 3-year-old filly for owner and breeder GFR Equine Services. Streakinlilwagon broke alertly from the gate and led throughout the 400 yard race, finishing one length in front of favorite Jess Rocket Man.
“She’s a real nice horse to ride,” Smith said. “She stands up in there and leaves and runs her butt off every time.”
One Kool Dreamer was third in the Derby, 3/4 lengths behind Jess Rocket Man. Both are trained by Jason Olmstead. Streakinlilwagon paid $6.80.
The $20,000 Northlands Juvenile went to Rate Me a Lady, trained by Olmstead and ridden by Luis Valenzuela. The 2-year-old filly is owned and was bred by Jo Rice. Rate Me a Lady paid $31.60. Chloes Magic, the odds-on favorite, also trained by Olmstead was second. Kickin Good Time was third.
