Ec Jet One wins the All American Derby

RUIDOSO, N.M. - Trainer Judd Kearl has had quite a meet this summer at Ruidoso Downs Race Track and Casino with a strong winning percentage and several other horses hitting the board. On Sunday afternoon, the 41-year-old trainer earned arguably his biggest win of his career when Ec Jet One rallied for a half-length win in the Grade 1, 440-yard All American Derby, which was worth $2,414,691. The All American Derby is for three-year-old quarter horses. The 10-horse field was full of talent and many said any of the 10 could win it. It was a close race throughout, but Ec Jet One finished strong and won in a time of 21.490 seconds. "It's a great win and Ec Jet One gave such a great effort," said Kearl, who has been training for 15 years. "We give some time off earlier this year and he came back and ran a great trial for this race. He finished strong to earn the win. He's a big, strong horse. "Ec Jet One earned $1,014,336 for owner Enrique Carrion of Veracruz, Mexico. The Texas-bred son of the Louisiana Cartel has now won eight of 10 starts. He was the second fastest qualifier for the All American Derby and also owns wins in the South Florida Derby and Hialeah Derby at Hialeah Park in Florida. ...more
