Otimberimfallninlove Surprises in Lethbridge Sport of Speed Sale Futurity

LETHBRIDGE, AB—JUNE 18, 2017—Though both hit the board, it was neither the fastest qualifier nor the post-time favorite who hit the wire first in the $32,090 Sport of Speed Sale Futurity at Lethbridge. Otimberimfallninlove, the second longest shot in the field, defeated fellow 2-year-old Alberta-breds by a neck on Sunday.
