<P>68 SEPTEMBER 2013 Q-RACING JOURNALI IT WAS A BIG UPSET IN THE BIGGEST RACE IN SPRINT history: The 24-1 longshot Feature Hero took the $2,809,784 All American Derby (G1) on September 1 to earn his place in the history books. The black gelding was overlooked in the race dominated by the presence of Andrew Smiths Wicked Courage, who prior to the August 17 Derby trials had rattled off nine consecutive wins that included the $822,753 Ruidoso Derby (G1) and $1,054,992 Rainbow Derby (G1). The horse had lost in the All American qualifying trials, finishing a length off Bon Accords pace-setting :20.997, but had stumbled at the start and still posted the second-fastest time into the race – enough excuse that he was still sent off as the 6-5 favorite in the All American. Not as much was said about Reliance Ranches LLCs Feature Hero, who had squeaked into the race as the 10th-fastest qualifier after a second- place finish to Louisana Corona in their trial. The Eddie Willis trainee, however, was ready to go. I thought he was sitting on a big race, said his jockey, Jimmy Dean Brooks, who galloped him in the mornings. He came out of his trial better than he ever came out of a race. And Jimmy Dean had the backing of his father, the highly respected Roy Brooks, the retired jockey who at age 71 last year finished second by a head in the Rainbow Derby (G1) aboard Willis trainee Priceless Feature. I actually told Jimmy Dean this morning, I said, ‘You know, you could win this race, Roy remembered. (Wicked Courage) was the only one I was really worried about. Willis, as usual, ponied his horse to the gates. He advised the jockey to encourage the horse with a left-handed whip, in case the roar of the crowd spooked the horse. He warmed up real easy, thats the way we always warm him up, Jimmy Dean said. He walked in the gate just fine, but got a little antsy right at first but then he settled right back down. Derby Hero Feature Hero wins the richest race in sprint history. By Andrea Caudill Feature Hero takes the richest race in sprint history, with Bon Accord (1) second.
