OKLAHOMA CITY – February 20, 2020 – Ferarri Tyme was the fastest 2-year-old American Quarter Horse of the day in Remington Park training races on Thursday, Feb. 20. However, he was not the fastest of the day as a 2-year-old Paint and 3-year-old Quarter Horse managed to share that honor.
Ferrari Tyme covered 250 yards in race six in 13.662 seconds for a speed index of 74 with jockey Cristian Esqueda in the saddle for owner/trainer Leonardo Alcala. This 2-year-old colt by Freighttrain B, out of the Mr Jess Perry mare Ferarri Fast Prize, won under wraps by 1-1/4 lengths.
Cuz Eyema Livewire was the Paint that stopped the timer in 13.656 seconds for a 74 speed index in race three. That was the exact time as a 3-year-old Quarter Horse in the seventh and final race of the day, Like A Freight Train. Reuben Castro rode Cuz Eyema Livewire for trainer Carlos Ruiz and owner Gary L. Henseley. Jorge Torres rode Like A Freight Train for trainer Stacey Charette-Hill.
