Bitterroot Derby
by Tracy Gantz
The $16,950 Bitterroot Derby on July 4 turned into a two-horse race, as TM Day Money battled with 2-5 favorite Rob That Wagon throughout.
TM Day Money got the jump on Rob That Wagon out of the gate, breaking on top from the eight-hole with Rob That Wagon coming out of the one-hole in second.
Rob That Wagon quickly took the lead, how- ever, and held slim nose over TM Day Money at the first call.
With Rob That Wagon on the rail and TM Day Money on the outside, they fought throughout.
TM Day Money took a nose lead at the top of the stretch and held on to his lead. At the wire, it was TM Day Money edging out Rob That Wagon by a nose.
The bay colt completed the 400 yards in :20.152 under Eric Ayala, posting an 84 speed index.
TM Day Money brought home the $7,966 winner’s share of the purse for owner Two The Max Investments LLC and trainer Monty Arrossa.
The colt has made all eight of his starts in Idaho, competing at Pocatello Downs, Sandy Downs, Minidoka Fair, Cassia Fair, Blackfoot and Jerome Fair.
The Bitterroot Derby was the first stakes vic- tory for TM Day Money, who now has a race record of 8-2(1)-1-1.
Two The Max Investments LLC bred TM Day Money from the winning Tres Seis mare Cashs Tres. TM Day Money is the mare’s only starter.
Jesus Carnales rode Rob That Wagon (PYC Paint Your Wagon-First Tea Rose) to second. Mark Hanson trains the brown gelding for owners RTM Stables LLC and Robin Dunn. Rob That Wagon won last year’s Bitterroot Futurity, Oneida County Futurity, and Sandy Downs Juvenile Challenge as part of a six race win streak.
Your Pace Or Mine (Woodbridge-Judging Julie) finished in third place after breaking his maiden in his second start. Cordarelton Benn rode the gelding for owners David and Cassie Daniels and trainer Kyle Dahlke.
He Looks Royal (Royal Shake Em-Mothers Gift) finished in fourth place and was fol-
lowed across the finish line by Attorney Fees (Maknmoves-Coronation Time), Jess Echeson (One Sweet Jess-Eyesa Painted Bug), Sheza Vital Secret (We Have A Secret-Sheza Signature) and KJ Fyre (Jess Got Easier-Lite My Fyre). First Down Courage was scratched.

Heswatchingoveryou began his racing career
at Turf Paradise, finishing third once in two starts. His owner, Luis Gonzalez, took over the colt’s
training at Sandy Downs, putting jockey Oscar Cervantes aboard. That team is now two-for-two, as Heswatchingoveryou captured the $91,256 Bitterroot Futurity on July 4.
In his June 21 trial, Heswatchingoveryou won his heat wire-to-wire by 1 3/4-lengths and qualified the fastest.
In the Bitterroot Futurity finals, Heswatchingoveryou scampered to the lead from the eight post. He held a length margin through the first call and at the top of the stretch. The sorrel colt kept increasing his margin, scoring another wire-to-wire victory - this time by 1 1/4-lengths. He stopped the timer in :17.857 for 350 yards.
Heswatchingoveryou has a race record of 2(1)- 0-1 from four starts now, winning his last two races and breaking his maiden in the Bitterroot Futurity trials. He finished third in his first start in the trials to the John Deere Turf Paradise Juvenile Challenge. He qualified and then finished sixth after having a poor start in the finals.
Fulton Quien Sabe Ranches LP bred Heswatchingoveryou out of winner A Watchful
Eye. The mare has produced eight winners from 11 starters, including stakes winner Scrutinizer and stakes-placed Do Not Blink. A Watchful Eye, a full sister to World Champion Special Leader, is out of stakes-placed Miss Eye Opener, a full sister to graded stakes winner Mr Eye Opener.
Jess Tellin Tales (Wagon Tales-Acting Up For Perry) finished in second place under jockey Joseph Belloc Jr. for owners Cameron and Leanne Mullrony and trainer Monty Arrossa. In three previous starts, the filly had finished first, second, and third, including a win in the Rocky Mountain Spring Classic Futurity.
Nakia Ramirez rode Brilliant Cut Cartel (Coronado Cartel-Azoom Diamond) to third. Mark Hanson trains the gelding for RTM Stables LLC and Robin & Kevin Dunn. Brilliant Cut Cartel broke his maiden in his first start.
Zoom On Jess (Jess Zoomin-Feature Miss Fame) finished in fourth place and was followed by Thrill Of The Cartel (Favorite Cartel-License To Thrill), Maximo II (Concorde’s Appeal TB-Race To Riches), Shidacious (Bodacious Dash-Shi D Anna), Mothers Favorite (Favorite Cartel-Mothers Gift) and Sheza Tacy Gator (Tac It Like A Man-Sheza Gator). Fames Carter was scratched.

Kool Odds did have cool odds for the $50,677 Bank of America Sandy Downs Championship Challenge on July 4.
After finishing third in his June 21 trial and
qualifying with the seventh-fastest time, he went off at 12-1 odds, leading to a $26.60 payoff after he scored by a neck.
Jockey Nakia Ramirez was piloting Kool Odds for the first time in the Bank of America Sandy Downs Championship Challenge finals.
Kool Odds exploded out of the two-gate on the lead and never let another horse past him. The four- year-old gelding had a neck lead at the first call and held on to that margin throughout the contest, com- pleting the 440 yards in :21.715 for a 108 speed index. The clocking was good for a New Track Record. The previous mark was set in 1992 when Bobbys Dividend covered the same distance in :21.810.
Owned by Hanson Racing LLC and Robin Dunn and trained by Mark Hanson, Kool Odds was winning his fifth race in 12 lifetime starts. His four seconds include the 2018 Jake Kapp Memorial Stakes and Emerald Downs Championship Challenge. He also won the Spackman Handicap wire-to-wire at Weber Downs on June 1.
Dr. Steve Burns bred Kool Odds out of his home- bred mare Kool Kue Chick. The mare has produced 18 winners from 28 starters, including stakes win- ners Kool Cade and Hawk Kue Pie. Kool Kue Chick is a half-sister to Champion Kool Kue Baby, AQHA’s number one all-time leading stakes winner.
Jim Walker’s homebred Time For Jesse Lee (Mr Jesse Lee-Time For Noble) finished second under Joseph Belloc Jr. for trainer Monty Arrossa. Time For Jesse Lee previously captured the 2013 Gem County Futurity, 2014 Uncas Handicap, and 2014 Bitterroot Derby.
Glen and Jill Jamison’s homebred JT Easy Bug (Jess Got Easier-Miss Perry Bug) ran third under jockey Eric Ayala. Glen Jamison also trains the four- year-old gelding, who won the 2018 Oneida County Fair Derby.
