Saturday's twelfth running of the Dash In A Flash went to the only horse with a previous win at the distance, Ms Haulic Chic. Ms Haulin Chic ($9.20) covered the football field distance in :06.978 and earned a 99 speed index.
Winning trainer R. Allen Hybsha has now won the Dash In A Flash for two consecutive years, though with different horses. Last year, he brought Lota James (by Ivory James) to the winner's circle.
"She's super, very laid back, just a kitten. Never gets excited," Hybsha observed about this year's winning filly. His wife, Camy, agreed, "She's a joy. She didn't even break as well as she usually does, but we knew she could do it." The Hybshas were expecting her good early speed, as the 4-year-old filly recently broke the track record for 220 yards at Remington this spring.
Ms Haulin Chic is sired by DOMINYUN and is out of the Valiant Hero mare Valiant Chic. She was bred in Oklahoma by Racehorse Inc.
Ismael Suarez Ricardo was aboard again and has ridden the filly in seven of her last eight starts. Ms Haulin Chic is owned by Haulin Assets Racing and is now seven for 15 lifetime with over $70,000 in career earnings.
Bout Tree Fiddy and Brayan Velazquez were close behind the winner in second place. Bout Tree Fiddy is trained by Patrick Swan, who also co-bred and owns with Carry Allred.
Bout Tree Fiddy hit the board for the 14th time in 23 starts in Saturday's race, and has earned $150,000 in his career. The 4-year-old gelding was bred in Oklahoma, by IVORY JAMES, out of Hollie Jollie, by Fredricksburg.
He recently finished third in the Bank of America Canterbury Park Championship Challenge and was third in the Canterbury Park Derby last year. Between Canterbury starts, Bout Tree Fiddy made multiple stakes appearances at Prairie Meadows, Will Rogers and Remington.
It was tight for third place in the short race, but Bye Byefreighttrain put a head in front of post-time favorite Ferrari James (by IVORY JAMES).
Completing the field were Ms First Prize Rainy, Gianna Grace, Park Avenue Air, Eos Wing Man and Fast N Famous Jeans. Perfect Lota was scratched at the gate.
