EDMONTON, AB - SEPTEMBER 24, 2022 – The Saturday afternoon card at Century Mile began with a pair of trials to determine the field to the $81,855 (Can) Canada Quarter Horse Cup Futurity (RG3). The 400-yard final will be held on October 8.

The first trial of the day produced the second and third fastest qualifiers, as Northfork Boss defeated Professor Gee by a head.

Northfork Boss ($3.70) posted the second fastest time of :20.423 in with a 92 speed index in his win. O. Hernandez was in the irons for trainer Buckey Stockwell.

Professor Gee posted the third fastest time of :20.442 and earned a 91 speed index in the close finish.

The Fly Thru the Fire gelding shares the same connections as Noble Rearing, and was also ridden by Ricardo Moreno. He was bred in California by Ed Allred out of the Separatist mare Bemused.
