Gleason filly out to back up debut

EmailMiss Mary's Music dominated her lone career start in a performance that will send her to post as the favorite Monday in the $10,000 Kansas Thoroughbred Association Futurity at The Woodlands.

The 5 1/2-furlong race is restricted to 2-year-old fillies by stallions eligible to the series.

Miss Mary's Music made her career debut in a 4 1/2-furlong race at Arapahoe Park on June 25. She was in command throughout, increasing her advantage at every call for a five-length win.

"I started her once in Denver, and she won real easy with the boys," said Butch Gleason, who trains Miss Mary's Music for her breeder, Mary Schreiber. "She ought to be pretty tough."

Miss Mary's Music is by Prospector's Music. She is out of the mare Amazonpassage, who has produced three stakes winners, all of which have won KTA-series races. Of them, Amazon Ace and Mr. Ammo are past winners of the KTA Futurity.

Miss Mary's Music worked a bullet half-mile in 48 seconds in her final prep for Monday. She will be ridden by Ken Shino.

The chief threat could be Just Plain Blue, a debut winner at The Woodlands on Sept. 23. In that race, she defeated KTA Futurity entrants Special Grace and Victory's Beach. Just Plain Blue is trained by Brent Janssen.
