Bull Headed

Remington Park conducted five trials Saturday evening to find the qualifiers for the Grade 1 Speedhorse Graham Paint & Appaloosa Futurity. Bull established the fastest 350-yard effort in the final trial heat.

The 2-year-old bay tobiano stallion put up his time with style, overcoming a bobbling start, leaning inward and almost going into an all-out stumble. Under Jorge Torres, Bull quickly found his full speed and stride, rallying to overcome a quick-starting J Woww to win the final trial of five by a neck. The 350-yard top time for Bull was :17.806 seconds over a fast track.

Owned by Buddy Albin of Denton, Texas, Bull is trained by Randy Hill. Bred in Oklahoma by Bill Price, Bull is a colt by Cartel Success (QH) from the Texas Hero mare Memories Of Texas. He has won two of three career starts this season.

Bull leads a qualifying field of 10 to the richest Paint & Appaloosa Futurity in the world, the $213,500 Speedhorse Graham on May 30. The complete group with individual times and trial heat:

  1. Bull, :17.806 (trial 5);
