Thirty-one of the top 2-year-old Quarter Horses in the Northwest competed in four trials on Sunday, October 19, at Portland Meadows, all trying to earn a spot in the $12,500-added Far West Futurity on Sunday November 2. Ten horses earned berths in the final for the Far West Futurity. Bh Lisas Boy topped the qualifiers with a huge 2¾- length victory in the second qualifier, stopping the clock in :17.843. The qualifying time was more than three-tenths of a second faster than the next fastest qualifier—Secret Mountain Pass—who won the third trial in a time of :18.170.

The 350 yard trials kicked off with Lil Touch Of Dixie, who scored an impressive 1½-length score in a time of :18.196. Lil Touch Of Dixie was the lone qualifier from the first trial to make the field in the final. Bh Lisas Boy’s big performance led the second qualifier, a race that produced five qualifiers for the final. Cops R Zoomin, Hes a Bugin, Fierce Dymand, and Little Blitzen ran second through fifth in that trial, with only a half-length separating them.

Secret Mountain Pass put up the second-fastest qualifying time in trial #3, scoring a hard-fought neck win over Chicks R Gone. Those two were the only qualifiers from the third trial.

L Bar D Sweet Fantsy scored a victory in the fourth and final trial, holding off a hard-charging Im Flirtin With Fire to win by a neck, stopping the clock in :18.250, which was the fifth fastest time overall. Im Flirtin With Fire also qualified for the final from the trial #4.
