J. B.'s Thunder Wires Breeders' Futurity

J. B.'s Thunder earned his way into the Breeders' Cup Grey Goose Breeders' Cup Juvenile (gr. I) with a front-running romp in the $400,000 Dixiana Breeders' Futurity (gr. I) at Keeneland Oct. 9.

Sent off a 5-1, J. B.'s Thunder widened his advantage on the final turn of the 1 1/16-mile test for 2-year-olds and cruised to a four-length victory for jockey Shaun Bridgmohan.

Al Stall Jr. trains the winning son of Thunder Gulch--Rebridled Dreams, by Unbridled's Song, for owner Columbine Stable. J. B.'s Thunder is unbeaten in two starts, having broken his maiden on the Saratoga turf at 1 1/16 miles Aug. 21.


"I had a feeling he’d leave on his toes today. He had been so sharp," Stall said. "He had a chance to school around here and get comfortable. Obviously he did, and Shaun just took it to ‘em."

I think J.B.'s Thunder will carry his speed far on the Churchill surface if they decide to run....love the pedigree and the saratoga effort wasn't a fluke....
This race makes the second time Santiva has finished behind J.B.'s Thunder (the first was a MSW race at Saratoga). Santiva won't be a maiden for long...
Good call on Santiva. Agree he's one to watch. I wasn't overly impressed by the frontrunning win by JB on the front track either.
Nice wire job effort by J.B.'s Thunder over the speed conducive Polytrack at Keeneland on Saturday. Todd Pletcher's runner-up Santiva is definitely one to keep an eye on. He overcame a troubled start to rally for the place. He is bred to run all day and has now handled synthetic, turf, and dirt.
