Saturday proved to be an eventful day for Quarter Horse stallions Jonathan Perry, Jumpn Chic and Primetime Dream as they were each represented by their first stakes winner.

The richest of the three initial stakes wins came at Indiana Downs, where Julia Rae Martin’s WH Johnnie Boy Red, by Jonathan Perry, captured the $130,700 Jaguar Rocket Stakes (R) for Indiana-bred 2-year-olds. The gelding, who was bred by Ken and Reba George and is trained by Paul Martin, picked up his third career victory in the race and pushed his bankroll to $86,173.

Jonathan Perry, a son of Mr Jess Perry, hit the board in stakes at 400 and 870 yards in his career. As a stallion, he has sired 11 winners and the earners of more than $200,000. He is owned by the Pierce Family Partnership of Sallisaw, Oklahoma.

Retama Park near San Antonio was the site of the two other new stakes winners with SS Poker Face Dream winning for sire Primetime Dream in the $101,950 TQHA Sires’ Cup Futurity (RG2) and Jumpn Beau Chick taking the $50,000 TQHA Sires’ Cup Derby (RG3) for sire Jumpn Chic.

SS Poker Face Dream, bred by Ronnie Stewart/Double S Farm and owned by Juan Carlos Perez, won for the fourth time in as many starts for trainer Cleto Martinez Jr. With career earnings of $50,170, SS Poker Face Dream is easily the top earner for Primetime Dream, a Grade 2-winning son of Royal Shake Em. Primetime Dream, who banked nearly $200,000 on the track, is owned by Ricardo Sigala Vallejo.

In the Derby, Francisco Garza’s Jumpn Beau Chick, trained by Roberto Madrigal and bred by Sergio Garza, broke her maiden and gave the Chicks Beduino stallion Jumpn Chic his first stakes winner. Jumpn Chic, owned by Cecilia Olivarez, placed in four stakes during his career, including a Grade 1 event. Jumpn Beau Chick is the leading earner among the 11 winners for Jumpn Chic.
