TCF NEW LOVE PLACES 3RD IN JIM BADER FUTURITY!

 

Prairie Meadows, Altoona, Iowa, October 26, 2012 -- TCF New Love, 2-year-old by Rare News, finished 3rd and earned her blacktype in the $125,000 Jim Bader Futurity on October 26, at Prairie Meadows. Another 2-year-old by Rare News, TCF Sixoclock News, finished 5th in the same race.

 

TCF New Love, si 84, out of Manets Lovenromance, is a race winner and twice placed from 6 starts at 2. (She actually won a 2nd race, but was disqualified.) She and TCF Sixoclock News (out of Sixarun Sal) were both bred by Jeremiah and Carrie Sperfslage. TCF New Love is owned by John Lawless. She has earned $21,651.

 

Following by Ty Wyant from surebetracingnews.com:

 

Trainer Brent Clay and jockey Stormy Smith certainly showed up at Iowa Championship night with horses ready for superior efforts as the team took three of the more important races — the Jim Bader Futurity, the Polk County Derby and the Future of Iowa Stakes on the card with seven stakes events....

In the $128,000 Jim Bader Futurity with the highest purse on the program, Robert Brown and Sandra Brown’s Tellher To Fly tried to bear in during most of the race, however Smith was able to keep the Teller Cartel filly out of serious trouble. She lined and went on to win over 7-10 favorite and fastest qualifier Catchin Fire. TCF New Love was another one-half length back in third.

Tellher To Fly raced the 350 yards in :17.832. The 19-10 second choice, Tellher To Fly raced to her first stakes win and third win from four starts. In the first of two Bader trials, Tellher To Fly finished second as the 2.5 favorite, one length behind Catchin Fire with the second-fastest qualifying time of :18.105.

Thomas Lepic’s Catchin Fire, a daughter of Chicks A Blazin, was the favorite after winning her three previous starts. The highlight of that winning streak was a one-half length win in the Iowa QHR Sale Futurity.

John lawless’ TCF New Love won a $20,000 maiden-claiming race two starts before the futurity and the won the second trial by three quarters of a length to give trainer Clay a 1-3 finish in the Bader. List of finishers in Jim Bader Futurity.

AH SOM NEWS ("FAST EDDIE") GETTING ATTENTION IN THE BARREL ARENA: 3rd in the 2D at the Greg Olson Memorial Futurity

 

Ah Som News, Classic Equine Futurity, Buckeye, AZ

 

Arizona, January 2012 -- Mary Moe's 2007 Ah Som News, by Rare News out of Ah Say Go (by Go Tip Top, a son of Alamitos Bar, is demonstrating some speed and a very good mind as he begins his futurity year.

 

Ah Som News, bred by Robert Gansel, Eureka, Montana, and known as "Fast Eddy," finished 3rd in the 2D at the Greg Olson Memorial Futurity, in Buckeye, Arizona this month. Ridden by Rick Manucy, Fast Eddy earned a check for $982!

 

Here are some things Mary wrote about her nice Rare News gelding, known as "Fast Eddy":

 

"Fast Eddy ran a 17.8 yesterday [January 13]. That was great! I was pleased, even though there were a ton of fast runs.  He did really well considering that the first horse in his drag went completely down on the first barrel then ran back and crashed into the fence and tried to take Eddy out after that! Eddy got upset but kept his cool. The horse right in front of him slipped on the third. The ground was pretty fluffy when Rick Manucy and Eddy ran. It got watered later on and go super fast after 100. Rick said Eddy flew to that first barrel so he checked him and then realized that when you check him he's going to turn, so it was a bit soon, then stalled out behind it, and wadded up on the second.

 

"But he said when he ran home he tapped him with the whip and Eddy grabbed another gear. He was really rolling home, said he's one of the fastest colts he's been that actually grab such a big gear on the way home and fly.  He's pretty impressed with him. Of course I am to!

 

"Even though there were a ton of fast runs yesterday,  Eddy still stood out. He's super consistent which is great.  Most of these futurity babies go out and might make a smoking run one day, and the next can't make the pattern. Eddy is very focused and making nice smooth runs.

 

"We weren't eligible for the average last weekend [Classic Equine Futurity, Buckeye, Arizona] 'cause we switched riders in the middle [Mary had an injury and was unable to make the 2nd run, so Rick rode Fast Eddy]. That was a bummer 'cause he would have ended up in there. Darn!"

 

Our congratulations to Mary for all her hard work on Ah Som News! Good luck, Fast Eddy!

In the 1st Go, Jana and News Runner ("Danny") loped a time of 18.042. Even though the 2nd Go was a bit slower (18.335), they finished 6th in the 2D and earned a big $502 check.

 

Hundreds of accomplished barrel racers competed in the Greg Olson, and Jana and Danny were right there with them. They both showed consistency and grit. And Danny is gaining confidence, too.

NEWS RUNNER EARNS A CHECK THE FIRST TIME ENTERED IN A BARREL COMPETITION!

 

NBHA New Years Bustin' Out 2011, Buckeye, Arizona, January 1, 2011 -- Jana Perry's homebred gelding, News Runner, by Rare News out of Runner Go Getum (by Bar Dandy Diamond) had a very good start to his barrel futurity year on New Year's Day by winning a check in his first barrel competition.

 

Five-year-old News Runner (known as "Danny"), is owned, trained and ridden by Jana Perry.

 

There were 282 entries competing January 1st in Buckeye. Danny wasn't a barn burner, but he was smooth and consistent (aside from taking a gander at the people in the stands as he went around the first barrel). In his first official barrel race, he ran 8th in 5D competition with a time of 19.300, and earned $158. He and Jana were in good company with some other very nice colts that day -- 2010 World Champion Barrel Racer Sherry Cervi was 2nd in that same 5D competition on MP Pay it Forward. Her time was 19.176.

RARE NEWS MAKES AQHA'S 2010 LIST OF MOST SUCCESSFUL SONS OF FIRST DOWN DASH AT STUD

Q-Racing, December 2010 -- RARE NEWS made American Quarter Horse Association's statistical list of the most successful sons at stud of the #1 Sire of Sires, First Down Dash, in 2010.

 

The December 2010 AQHA Q-Racing magazine (the stallion issue) lists the 50 leading SIRES OF SIRES of this year. These sires are listed by money earners through success of their sons standing at stud. First Down Dash is #1 on the list of Sires of Sires, and listed beneath him are his most successful sons at stud.

 

We are pleased and proud to report that Rare News just barely made that prestigious list of very accomplished stallions beneath his sire's name. There are so many fine sons of the great First Down Dash at stud, and it is very heartening to have Rare News's name on the list of the most successful.

 

We are grateful to Leon and Karen Glasser and their talented, big-hearted Little Love Affair, as well as to other owners of successful Rare News daughters and sons whose accomplishments on the racetrack have helped Rare News help his sire, First Down Dash, be the Sire of Sires.  See list here.

This News is Royal confidently sizes up the field, eyes the finish line, and does everything he can to get there first.

 

This News is Royal is quick, very smart and kind. His owner and his family love him. His trainer appreciates his heart, mind and soundness.

 

This News is Royal is a horse with the kind of ability and mind to have a full, useful productive life on or off the racetrack. He is the confident, bold kind of horse that Rare News sires.

LITTLE LOVE AFFAIR QUALIFIES FOR YELLOWSTONE DOWNS QH DERBY

 

UPDATE: Just the top 8 qualifiers advance to the Yellowstone Downs QH Derby instead of the top 10. That leaves Little Love Affair out. Too bad -- but that's horse racing!

 

Yellowstone Downs, Billings, Montana, September 6, 2010 -- LITTLE LOVE AFFAIR qualified (by the skin of her teeth) for the September 19th Yellowstone Downs Quarter Horse Derby! While her owners were at Ruidoso Downs, in New Mexico, getting ready to watch the All American Futurity, Leon and Karen Glasser's thoughts were on their Rare News daughter in Montana (with trainer Jim Fleming) competing against a number of talented 3-year-olds for the chance to run in the $20,000 (estimated) Yellowstone Downs Derby.

 

Little Love Affair was in the 3rd of 4 trials for the derby. She broke sharply from the #4 gate, but was bumped hard, which set her back at a disadvantage. The trial race was just 300 yards, and Little Love Affair who likes a longer distance, really scrambled under jockey Zachary Bacon, to finish 3rd behind Minnies Half and Chicks Brief Case. She ran the course in a time of :15.699, which left her in the 8th qualifying position overall before the last trial was even won. If the last trial was fast, she would be out.

 

Luckily for Little Love Affair, an 8-time winner, the 4th trial only had one horse with a time faster than hers, so Little Love Affair ended up qualifying -- 9th fastest, but qualifying just the same -- for the September 19th derby in Billings.

 

Fastest qualifier was Minnies Half, a very nice filly by Halftime Dash, owned by Bernard Dineen, of Utah, and trained by Jesse Villegas, followed by De Great Cartel, a talented son of Southern Cartel, owned by Craig Giles, of Idaho, and trained by Nick Cronquist.

 

From 12 starts at 2 and 3, Little Love Affair, si 97, has 8 wins (3 of them stakes wins), 2 seconds (1 a stakes 2nd), and 1 third. She was 1st in the North Dakota Bred Futurity, the Northern Plains Futurity and the Manitoba Bred Futurity, 2nd in the Manitoba Speed Horse Derby. She has earned $37,881.
