Sand On Fire wins at Retama Park

December 8, 2012, Retama Park, Texas ~ Coming into the final turn of the exciting Lone Star Arabian Fillies Futurity, four fillies were challenging for the lead. Sand On Fire, owned and bred by Jane Teutsch, made her way to the lead and held on for victory. She is a 3-year-old filly by Burning Sand out of B J Zell by Brusally Orlen. Her record is now 2 wins and 2 seconds from 5 starts.

TTT Tiny Tina, by Mano Y Mano out of TTT Tina by Accknowledge, had established an edge on the lead since before the quarter. Tikis Sandy Vaz, another daughter of Burning Sand, was still in the hunt after dropping back from an early pace. Zells Follies by S W Zell had been pressing the pace, and looked to have more to give but went 4 wide in the turn to cost her some strides. Sand On Fire had been pushed along midpack by jockey Dakota Woods, and was asked to make her bid in the stretch.

TTT Tiny Tina, Sand On Fire and Zells Follies battled down the stretch, with Sand On Fire emerging to a narrow lead 70 yards from the finish. TTT Tiny Tina, owned and trained by Kenny Massey and bred by 3T Arabians finally gave way and missed the win by a length. Zells Follies, bred by Jane Teutch and owned by Rossi Hoefer, thundered in only 3/4 length further back for third. Zells Follies is trained by Matthew Glover.

Final time for the six furlong race was 1:22.66. Elizabeth Brand trained the winner Sand On Fire who took home $6,900 of the $13,800 purse.
