Ivoriona Much the Fastest in Trials Friday for Speedhorse Lone Star Paint & Appaloosa Futurity at Lone Star Park

(Grand Prairie, Texas - Friday, October 14, 2016) - Ivoriona, racing for the partnership of Mickey Johnson & Randy Hill and trained by Randy Hill, blew away the field in the first trial of the night, posting the fastest qualifying time of :19.763 seconds at 400 yards on a good track. Speed index earned was 92.

Ridden by Jorge Torres Ivoriona, the daughter of Ivory James broke from the outside post and already had a two length advantage over the field at the first call. She set the bar so high that none of the other 23 contenders could get under the 20 second mark. A repeat performance in the final $34,700 Grade 1, Speedhorse Lone Star Paint & Appaloosa Futurity, to be held on Saturday, October 29, would certainly see her in the winner's circle.
