Race Record: Two horses qualified from the fourth race on the second day of trial to the All American Futurity (G1). Jess Good Candy was clocked in the day’s third-fastest time of :21.642 while McClintock B was fourth-fastest at :21.646. With All American-winning jockey Joe Badilla Jr. up for trainer Mike Joiner, who also conditions First Valiant Sign, McClintock B finished half of a length off the pace.

Now an earner of $5,520 with one win from four starts, McClintock B broke his maiden on his third trip to post, in maiden company on August 2 at Ruidoso. In his first two outs, the bay gelding by champion FDD Dynasty dead-heated for fifth in his May 23 trial to the Ruidoso Futurity (G1) and then finished eighth behind winner Hatefulist in his July 3 trial to the Rainbow Futurity (G1). Hatefulist clocked the second-fastest qualifying time on the second day of trials to the All American Futurity (G1) when he won the 11th trial in :21.596.

Breeder: McClintock B is bred by Bielau Oaks of Weimar, Texas (Monica Williams, president). Bielau Oaks has been represented by 153 winners, earning more than $3.6 million from 899 starters. Among them are this year's Vessels Maturity (G1) winner Far Niente ($420,398) and 2014 All American Futurity finalist Thunderball B ($103,902).

Owner: McClintock B is owned by McClintock B Partnership of Rancho Mirage, California.

Purchased for $175,000 at the Ruidoso Select Yearling Sale, McClintock B's ownership partnership comprises Pat Guthrie, Billy Smith, Trevor Smith, Andy Grooms and Paul Blanchard, who operates The Downs at Albuquerque. The bay gelding forced his owners to wait through 13 trials to see if he qualified for the All American Futurity.

“I think I lost 25 pounds,” said co-owner Billy Smith after the trials.

Trainer: Mike Joiner of Santa Teresa, New Mexico, has saddled horses with 3,838 lifetime starts with 655 wins for more than $20 million in earnings.

He trained Brimmerton to an All American Derby win in 2004, and also trained 2013 champion 2-year-old filly Kates Dynasty.  

Joiner is in the top 10  of AQHA’s all-time leading trainers list, and also trains qualifier First Valiant Sign.

Jockey: Joe Badilla Jr. is a four-time AQHA champion jockey (1995, 1998-99, 2001) with more than $26 million in career earnings. In 10,659 starts he has rode 1,922 winners and 169 stakes winners.

He was in the irons in 1999 for A Delightful Dasher’s All American Futurity win, as well as for A Delightful Dasher’s win the following year in the All American Derby. He also jockeyed Snow Big Deal to his 2003 All American Derby win and DM Streakn Thru Fire to win the 2014 All American Gold Cup (G1).

Pedigree: McClintock B is one of 224 winners and the earners of more than $9.6 million from 328 starters in five crops raced by his sire, an 11-year-old son of First Down Dash out of Grade 1 winner Dinastia Toll BRZ ($191,896). A champion on the track in both 2006-07, FDD Dynasty earned $1,173,001 and in Grade 1 events won the Ed Burke Million Futurity and Go Man Go Handicap and placed in the Golden State Million Futurity, Los Alamitos Two Million Futurity and Blues Girl Too’s Champion of Champions. FDD Dynasty has sired champion Kates Dynasty ($572,882) and 42 other stakes winners. Owned by a syndicate, FDD Dynasty stands at Bob Moore Farms at Norman, Oklahoma.

McClintock B is the first foal out of the Grade 1-placed Mr Jess Perry mare First Class Lacy B ($91,149), who in 2010 finished second in the 2010 West Texas Futurity (G1) and ran in eventual world champion Cold Cash 123’s All American Juvenile Invitational (R).
