PHOENIX, AZ—DECEMBER 2, 2012—The Fales' family and jockey Jorge Bourdieu won both trials and posted the top two qualifying times in the Margie Bryan ASOA Futurity trials on Sunday afternoon at Turf Paradise.

The 10 fastest qualifiers will return to the Arizona racetrack on Sunday, December 16, and vie for the winner's share of a $10,000-added purse for 2-year-olds going 400 yards.

Coming off a second place effort in the $28,737 AQRA Futurity on November 11, Harlee Tucker broke her maiden over Nonitas Scooter in the first of two trials. Ralph and Carolyn Fales own the Heza Motor Scooter filly trained by their son Matt Fales and ridden by Jorge Bourdieu. Her time of :20.201 seconds was the fastest from the 16 head starting in the trials.
