Jumpn Shake is Fastest Qualifier in Dash For Cash Futurity Trials

(Grand Prairie, Texas - Saturday, September 25, 2010) - Antonio Flores’ Jumpn Shake, trained by Benjamin Garza and ridden by Manuel Garcia, extended his current winning streak to three in a row and became the fastest qualifier with a time of 19.322 seconds for 400 yards among 151 competitors in the Dash For Cash Futurity trials over a muddy track on Saturday night at Lone Star Park. The Grade 1, $514,650 Dash for Cash Futurity and Juvenile Stakes, for two-year-olds, will both be run at Lone Star Park on Saturday, Oct. 9.

The sorrel son of Jumpn, who won the fourth of the 16 trial races, was dominating from gate to wire in winning by two lengths over second-place finisher The Printing Press to earn a Speed Index of 106. It was his sixth win from eight career starts.

All-American Futurity third-place finisher, Dominyun, owned by Bobby Cox and trained by John Buchanan, qualified with the second fastest time of 19.404 seconds with Russel Hadley in the irons.
