First-timer Another Bumper wins Lincoln Futurity


LINCOLN, Neb. - Another Bumper made his career debut a stakes-winning effort, scoring by a length as the 4-5 favorite in the $21,000 Lincoln Futurity for Nebraska-bred 2-year-olds at Lincoln Race Course on Saturday afternoon.

Ridden by Jake Olesiak, Another Bumper challenged early leader Perfect One after a quarter-mile of the 4 -furlong dash, moved clear, and then held Miss Stryker safe in the lane. Mis Stryker rallied outside in the stretch to gain second while Perfect One faded to third, another 3 3/4 lengths back.

Another Bumper ($3.60), trained by Chuck Turco, is a son of Blumin Affair out of the mare Bumperette. Another Bumper covered the distance in 54.60 seconds over a fast track.
