The eight fastest from the four trial races will return to the Alberta Canada racetrack Sunday August 17 and vie for the winner's share of a $10,000-added purse going 300 yards.
Stella Wave, a WAVE CARVER filly out of Special Corona by Corona Cartel, kicked-off the afternoon with an impressive 1¾ length victory in the first trial to set the top qualifying mark of :15.620 seconds, a 97 speed index.
Coming off a runner-up finish in the John Deere Evergreen Juvenile Challenge on July 27, the chestnut filly broke her maiden in her fourth career start. An earner of $8,847 this season she has put together a (4) 1-3-0 record.
Calton and Allen book-ended the trials by taking the final trial by half-a-length with Raging Wave. The WAVE CARVER colt posted the second fastest qualifying time of :15.708 seconds. Raging Wave, who was third in the aforementioned John Deere Evergreen Juvenile, also broke his maiden with the trial victory.
The $5,820 stakes-placed earner is 1-1-2 in five starts this season. Raging Wave is out of the Special Task mare Rosas Special.
The other Calton/Allen qualifier was the WAVE CARVER filly Wave Rocker, second by a neck to Red Armor in the second trial. Out of the Chicks Beduino mare Sheza Special Chick, the gray filly was making only her second career start in the trials.
