Heart Of The Cartel Gets First Stakes Winner

WAYNE, OK—JULY 8, 2018—Third-crop sire Heart Of The Cartel got his first stakes winner on Saturday when Tres My Heart won the $50,000 Indiana Grand QHRAI Derby at Indiana Grand Racing & Casino.

Tres My Heart, making only her second career start, had a clean break from the gate and seemed focused from the start. The 3-yaer-old Oklahoma bred filly grabbed a short lead and became the horse that the rest of the field would have to catch in the final portions of the race. She completed the 400 yards in :20.020 seconds to pick up the winner's check of $27,500.

Trainer Hector Sanchez conditions the bay filly for owner Maria Chaparro. Canadian River QH's LLC bred Heart Of Cartel from the Tres Seis mare Famous Mariah.

In just her second career start, Tres My Heart wins the $50,000 Indiana Grand OHRAI Derby.
