It’s been a groovy kind of year for Psychedelic Scott—the 2013 gray solid Paint-bred gelding has been on a roll in his first year on the track, racking up four wins in eight tries for earnings in excess of $100,000. His latest victory came October 3 at Will Rogers Downs in Claremore, Oklahoma, when he led wire to wire to win the G1 Pot O’ Gold Futurity with his best speed index of 98.

The gray ghost and jockey Jesus Salazar shot out of the gate and dominated the field of 2-year-olds over the 400-yard distance, crossing the finish line with a margin of 2-¾ lengths in front with a time of 19.679 seconds. The win netted $12,844 for Psychedelic Scott’s owners, Paint Horse Queens of Inola, Oklahoma. Bred by Wendy Ingersoll of Inola, the gelding is by $5 Million Sire Judys Lineage and out of The Hippie Chick (QH).

The Pot O’Gold was an exclamation point on an already impressive inaugural year for Psychedelic Scott. The gelding won the G1 PSBA Futurity in April, was second in the G1 Speedhorse Graham Paint & Appaloosa Futurity in May and third in the G1 Speedhorse Paint & Appaloosa Futurity in July. Psychedelic Scott is currently No. 2 on APHA’s list of leading money-earners on the track for 2015. Trainer Dee Keener swept the top spots in the Pot O’ Gold, training the first-, second- and third-place horses in addition to four others.

Second place went to Imahotchicken, a 2013 sorrel solid mare owned and bred by Shirley Wheeler of Boynton, Oklahoma. Ridden by Randy Wilson, Imahotchicken finished in 20.098 with a speed index of 88—her best yet—and took home $5,746 for the effort. The stakes-placed mare, who is by $5 Million Sire Royal Quick Flash and out of APHA’s top racing broodmare by earnings Game Chicken, has tallied $51,294 so far in 2015.

Third in the Pot O’ Gold went to Eyem Savvy, a 2013 sorrel tobiano stallion ridden by Edgar Martinez for owner David Alaniz of Odessa, Texas. Breaking seventh, Eyem Savvy quicky rallied to third as he streaked down the track, crossing the finish line in 20.202; the effort netted $3,718 for his connections. By Royal Quick Flash, Eyem Savvy is out of Eysa Savvy Queen and was bred by Dean and Tonya Lester of Skiatook, Oklahoma; his 2015 earnings are in excess of $12,000.

Others in the field included Jungle Chick, DTL Head Honcho, Divas Awesome Whiz, Joxer Daly, Sturgis, TLC Flash, Macies Dos Poruno and Snow Chief Running.
