<P>Q-RACING JOURNAL SEPTEMBER 2013 69 said Reliance Ranch co-owner Micah McKinney. We werent concerned that he was the 10th-fastest qualifier. This is the thrill of a lifetime. Racing in front of a crowd of 21,857 – the largest crowd ever for a non-All American Futurity day – Feature Hero brought home a first-place check of $1,180,110. The victory boosted his career record to four wins, three seconds and three thirds from 14 starts and earnings of $1,306,638. Last year, he was fourth in Carters Cookies Rainbow Futurity (G1). Earlier this year, he finished second in Brace For Bernals $253,000 Remington Park Oklahoma-Bred Derby (R) and then had a rough trip in the Jack Brook Stakes (RG3). Heros Ranch RELIANCE RANCHES IS A FAMILY OWNED OPERATION AT LLANO, Texas, run by the McKinney family. It includes Gary and his wife, Shiela; son Micah and his wife, Leslie; and daughter MLissa Schoening and her husband, Jeremy. The family has an oil and gas business based in Midland, Texas, but has always enjoyed horses and the agricultural lifestyle. When my header focused him, he pointed like a bird dog. And when they kicked it, he was gone. Bon Accord, who ran a huge race in the trials, proved he wasnt a fluke. Busting out from Post 1, the sorrel Shazoom gelding took the lead in the early stages of the 440-yard test and ran determinedly. He was unable to hold off Feature Heros charge, and was a neck back at the wire. Feature Hero broke cleanly from Post 7, running well early and finishing well. The winner was hand-timed across the wire in :21.560. I hit him right handed a few times and then sat on him for a bit and then switched on him, Jimmy Dean said. I thought they might be coming after him. If you let him, hell prick his ears and look at stuff. But when I switched, he beared back down. About 100 yards from the wire, I felt something on the inside, so I hit him a few times. I knew I had it about 50 yards from the wire. Point Break Dash was third, followed by Vancouver Moon, Wonderboy, Elisas Secret, Wicked Courage, Louisana Corona, Tayte Me Down and The Magic Dash. We believed in (Feature Hero) and are so proud of him, The All American Derby winners circle Martha Claussen interviews Reliance Ranches Micah McKinney after their big win. Leslie, Micahs wife, and his father, Gary, are at left.
