SHELBYVILLE, IN—JULY 3, 2021—Zack, a son of multiple stakes sire IVORY JAMES, turned in the second fastest trial time for the Jaguar Rocket Futurity Saturday.

A total of 34 two-year-olds were seeking a spot in the $100,000 final slated for Saturday, July 24, and Carters Law established herself as one of the favorites for the final.

Saddled by trainer Ron Raper and ridden by Shanley Jackson, the brown colt was quick out of the gate and on top in the blink of an eye, rallying home to a one and one-quarter length win in :15.551. 

Zack James recorded his first career win in the trial. He is owned by Tina and Kevin Cleary and was bred by the Cleary family from the Leader Of THe Class mare Romped. He has earned $11,650 in two starts.

"This horse eats and sleeps all the time," smiled Raper, who has eight leading trainer titles to his credit at Indiana Grand. "He wastes no energy around the barn. He's a perfect gentleman until he gets around another horse and then he wants to run. He definitely likes to run."
