August 15, 2012

Joseph Lanreneau’s Dashin Forward, ridden by Jarrod Deschamp for new trainer Kelli Smith, posted the fastest qualifying time of :17.349 in nine 350-yard trial races for the Louisiana Quarter Horse Breeders Association Sales Futurity at Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots. The top 10 fastest Louisiana-bred juveniles from today’s trials qualified for the September 1 final, which will carry an estimated purse of $150,000.

Finishers 11 through 20 (as ranked by final time) earned automatic berths to the $50,000 LQHBA Sales Invitational, also on Closing Day, September 1.

Trainer Heath Taylor qualified two horses for the final – Logans Mountain and Streakin Ellen. Both were ridden by John Hamilton.
