Eye Got The Blues Fastest Qualifier for $321,900 Sam Houston Futurity at SHRP

(Thursday, August 13, 2009) - The trials for the $321,900 Sam Houston Futurity for two-year-olds going 400 yards were held on Thursday, August 13 at Sam Houston Race Park. Sent off as the heavy 1-to-2 favorite in his trial, Roselyn Atkin's Eye Got The Blues justified his backers, dueling for the lead early, taking over, and then drifting out in the stretch but still managing to hold off Mr Celeb Jess by three-quarters of a length to stop the timer in :19.968. Earning a 97 Speed Index, that time made the brown gelded son of Jess Louisiana Blue and the Mr Eye Opener mare Kdwantsafastone the fastest qualfier. He is trained by Frank Cavazos and was ridden to victory by Luis Vazquez. Mr Celeb Jess's second place finish in that trial still earned him a spot in the finals as the second fastest qualifier..
