                                TQHA Sale Futurity-RG2
by Danny Camp
Relentless Dynasty scored his first ever stakes victory in his third career start in the $474,750 TQHA Sale Futurity at Retama
Park on July 27.
Under regular rider Victor Urieta Jr., the
two-year-old bay colt broke in second from the six-post.
Relentless Dynasty began to drift in a bit and fall behind, but still holding on to third place midway through the 350 yards.
The colt was running in second place by just a slim nose as they reached the top of the stretch. He then grabbed the lead in the final yards of the contest to cross the wire a neck in front.
Owned by Andres Guerra and trained by Adrian Huitron, Relentless Dynasty stopped the timer in :17.586, which was worth a 101 speed index.
Relentless Dynasty also earned a first place check worth $211,264. He now has a bankroll worth $216,667.
Relentless Dynasty has only run three races in his short freshman career. He won his maiden race at Sam
Houston Race Park at the
350-yard distance.
He then ran an even third place finish in his July 12 trial for the TQHA Sale Futurity. His :17.621 gave him the fifth fastest qualify- ing time to the finals.
“We bought this
horse out of the Texas sale for $7,500” stated trainer Adrian Huitron of Relentless Dynasty.
“We weren’t afraid to
take a chance on a stud that
hasn’t been well tested,” Huitron continued.
“As soon as we started training, I liked him. He was training really well and just before his first futurity he kicked the stall
door and hurt himself. We decided to cut him, so his training was put on hold for a bit.
“When we started up again, we entered in a maiden race. That race really impressed me. For the (TQHA Sale Futurity) tri- als, we were worried because he had never been under
the lights. I think that’s the reason he didn’t break very good.
“In the finals, he didn’t get away the best. But, he made an impressive run.
“He’s good to be around - calm and quiet and a nice ride in the mornings. He
handles the gates like a pro. Now that I think about it, he’s a pro at whatever he does. He has pulled up good after every race and he always eats good.
