Hello, and welcome to another edition of ‘Live-Blogging Shish on Horse Racing’. This Afternoon, it is the 2023 Rainbow Futurity.
Last Month, Let’s Leave ended up winning the 2023 Ruidoso Futurity. However, he skipped the trials for the Rainbow Futurity and will not participate.
So now the favorite of the Middle Leg of the Quarter Horse Triple Crown belongs to #7 Dark NME (5-2 Morning Line). She had the fastest time on Day 1 of the Trials, back on July 30th. Now the 2-year-old filly will be looking to take the $1 Million 400-yard sprint This Afternoon.
She will have to ward off the likes of Wired 440 and Scream Machine to capture this race.
