Saturday, May 31 featured plenty of thrills and another futurity win for Flash N B Gone as he scored in the Grade 1, $190,480 Graham Paint & Appaloosa Futurity.
Flash N B Gone added the Graham, the richest futurity for Paints or Appaloosas at Remington Park, to his March victory in the Oklahoma Paint Futurity. Owned by Desiree Buck of Ringling, Okla. and trained by David Drake, Flash N B Gone had the riding services of G.R. Carter who had a record evening.
Flash N B Gone had a rough start enduring contact with an inside rival just out of the starting gate. “He and Awesome Judy looked like they bushed a little bit he was able to go right on,” Drake said. “G.R. did an outstanding job.”
After he managed to get rolling, the 2-year-old Oklahoma-bred gelding came on with a late rush to just get up to win by a neck over Make No Shadows, who was followed by Speed Bandit finishing in third.
“This is only the second time I have been on him,” Carter noted. “The first time was in the trials and I felt like I got him beat then. He broke really well and I got confident on him and he let up on me. I definitely knew not to get too confident on him tonight. I made sure I kept him straight, he ran a really nice race.”
Make No Shadows was the top qualifier for the Graham in trials conducted on May 17. She was part of a three-horse same owner entry in the Graham Futurity, played to favorite status at 8-5 in the wagering.
A son of Royal Quick Flash from the Disco Jerry mare All I Can Bee, Flash N B Gone covered the 350 yards of the Graham in :18.15 over a fast track. The win was the second from five career starts for Flash N B Gone. His winner’s share of the Graham Futurity purse, $72,387, pushes his career total to $95,911. All of his races have been at RP.
