Couldabenthewhisky capped a sensational juvenile campaign with a
resounding five-length victory Sunday in the $75,000 Gottstein Futurity
It was the third stakes win of the meeting for
the 2-year-old Washington-bred by Harbor the Gold, and his four wins
overall tied the track record for most wins by a 2-year-old.
Gallyn Mitchell riding, Couldabenthewhisky ran 1 1/16 miles in 1:42 3/5
on a sloppy track and paid $9.80, $4.40 and $3.40. It was Mitchell's
record fourth victory in the Northwest's traditional championship event
