We Miss Artie Captures Breeders' Futurity

In the Dixiana Breeders’ Futurity, We Miss Artie covered the 1 1/16 miles on the fast main track in 1:46.91 to earn a spot in the $2 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1).

Trained by Todd Pletcher and ridden by John Velazquez, We Miss Artie rallied from off the pace to take control in the upper stretch and draw off from Smarty’s Echo.

Solitary Ranger and General Jack led the field of 12 through fractions of :23.17, :46.84 and 1:11.94 as We Miss Artie raced near the back of the pack. Velazquez moved We Miss Artie off the inside approaching the far turn and swung eight wide entering the stretch where he quickly collared Smarty’s Echo.

The victory was worth $240,000 and increased We Miss Artie’s bankroll to $307,000 with a record of 4-2-1-0.

We Miss Artie is a Canadian-bred son of Artie Schiller out of the Fusaichi Pegasus mare Athena’s Gift and is a graduate of the 2012 Keeneland September Sale.

We Miss Artie returned $21.80, $10.80 and $7.20. Smarty’s Echo, ridden by E.T. Baird, returned $10.80 and $6.20 with Arctic Slope finishing two lengths back in third under Joe Rocco Jr., and paying $6.60 to show.

Rum Point was another two lengths back in fourth and was followed in order by Conquest Titan, Pontos, Ready for Action, Laddie Boy, Solitary Ranger, General Jack, Kendall’s Boy and Tiznowforamerica.
