Carters Cartel sizzles


Carters Cartel confirmed his status as the nation's leading 2-year-old Quarter Horse with a record-breaking victory in the $1,130,000 Ed Burke Million Futurity at Los Alamitos.

Carters Cartel ($4.40), trained by Jaime Gomez, ran 350 yards in 17.17 seconds, breaking Corona Chick's 1991 track record of 17.22. Ridden by Alejandro Luna, Carters Cartel was always in control, winning by three-quarters of a length over Eye for Corona. Miss Kittys Bar Bet finished third, a nose behind Eye for Corona.
