FDD Dynasty wins Ed Burke Memorial Futurity


FDD Dynasty remained unbeaten after three starts with a convincing win in Saturday's $1,142,000 Ed Burke Memorial Futurity for Quarter Horses at Los Alamitos.

The win gave jockey G.R. Carter, Jr., a sweep of the two major races of the weekend. Carter won Friday's $137,700 Vessels Maturity aboard Be A Bono, the 2004 world champion.

FDD Dynasty ($13.40) finished three-quarters of a length in front of 7-5 favorite Blues Girl Too. He broke from the rail and led throughout, finishing 350 yards in 17.29 seconds. No Secrets Here finished third.

FDD Dynasty has earned $468,890 for a partnership and trainer Mike Joiner. The Ed Burke was FDD Dynasty's stakes debut after winning a maiden race and a trial for the Ed Burke Futurity.

The Ed Burke Futurity was the first of three seven-figure futurities for Quarter Horses at Los Alamitos this year. The next race in the series is the Golden State Million in November.

Be a Bono, 5, showed a remarkable rally in the final 100 yards to win the Vessels by 1 1-4 lengths over 35-1 Get Down Perry. Apollos Favorite finished third in the field of 10, with 9-5 favorite Gold Medal Jess only seventh.

Be a Bono ran 400 yards in 19.56 seconds. He has won 11 of 17 starts and $1,061,011 for breeder Spencer Childers and trainer Dan Francisco.
