OKLAHOMA CITY, OK—APRIL 12, 2024–Flying Wrangler took advantage of a non-existent wind by the time his Remington Park Futurity trial came around on Friday, April 12, posting the fastest time of the night of 11 trials for the $854,775 final.

The event, restricted to eligible Oklahoma-bred 2-year-old American Quarter Horses, will be run on Saturday, April 27.

When the trials began on Friday night, there was a headwind of 17 mph that the horses in the early races had to battle.

Make no mistake, however, Flying Wrangler’s performance was more than impressive. It wasn’t all the dying wind and the outside post that defined this race.

The 2-year-old Oklahoma-bred gelded son of leading second-crop sire Flying Cowboy 123, out of the Okey Dokey Dale mare Docs Dusty Dale, rocketed out of the gate and had a half-length lead before the blink of an eye.

When the gelding hit the wire, he had won by 1-3/4 lengths. The difference in speed-indexes from him to the second horse in his trial was 93 vs. 84.

Flying Wrangler’s win was the second in as many tries for the Stacey Capps-trained gelding. On March 24, Flying Wrangler broke his maiden at Remington Park by a half-length into a headwind of 25 mph. Dusty Rose Ranch bred this horse and owns him. It was Capps’ fifth win in 25 starts this meet for a solid 20 percent win rate.
