PHOENIX, AZ—APRIL 19, 2015—Still a maiden just over a month ago, Sonoran Foose closed late to defeat post-time favorite Magical Righter by a half-length Sunday afternoon in the $33,060 AQRA President's Open Spring Derby at Turf Paradise. Jess A Cowboy finished a head behind in the show position.
Ridden by jockey David Reyes-Frisby, Sonoran Foose completed the 350 yards in :17.603 seconds, to earn a 99 speed index. Trainer Matthew Fales saddled the 3-year-old Foose colt for owner/breeder Alejandro Marcelo Camou.
The $16,530 winner's purse boosted his career total to $23,792 with a 2-3-2 record in eight starts. Sonoran Foose is out of the Separatist mare Biggist.
Also a stakes winner last season, Jess A Cowboy picked up $3,306 for his effort. Matthew Fales trains Jess A Cowboy for owner/breeder Larry Stark. Russell Vicchrilli rode the Dejon gelding out of Secret Return, by Canth.
