Remington Park Oklahoma-Bred Futurity winner La Vencedora tops the first 2-year-old poll of the year.


AMERICAN QUARTER HORSE ASSOCIATION—MAY 3, 2017— The initial AQHA Racing National Poll for 2-year-olds was essentially a three-horse race for the top spot, with La Vencedora, winner of the $1,002,500 Remington Park Futurity (RG2), leading the field by a slim margin.

The Oklahoma-bred filly by IVORY JAMES, who tops all Quarter Horses in North America by earnings this year at $382,006, earned 85 out of 100 possible points in the voting.

Another Remington Park-based horse, Ima China Rush, took the No. 2 spot, with 81 points. The daughter of Rushago captured the $525,050 Oklahoma Futurity (G3) in March and then finished second by a nose in the Laico Bird Stakes (R) in April.

This Is An Eagle, winner of the Sam Houston Futurity (G2) this past weekend, finished a close third in the voting with 75 points.
