Richie the Bull's plans open-ended for now

STICKNEY, Ill. – Dom the Bomb won the Jim Edgar Illinois Futurity last December at Hawthorne by 5 1/4 lengths with a Beyer Speed Figure of 82. On Saturday, his half-brother, Richie the Bull, won the Jim Edgar Illinois Futurity by 9 1/4 lengths with a Beyer of 80. But Richie the Bull’s connections, trainer Larry Rivelli and owners Richard Ravin and V-Leaf Stables, surely hope the two horses’ story lines diverge from here on out.
