Whistle Stop Cafe is the undefeated world champion of the American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) in 2020. He held the best practice time in Ruidoso Downs last Thursday.
The daughter of champion stallion Frefran B rode jockey Tanner Thedford for 220 yards on the racetrack Thursday morning. The first official work record for a female horse owned by Whitmere Ranch was 11.41 seconds, the fastest of 33 heads to pass this distance that day.
“His performance is very good,” coach Terry Wood said. “He did what we wanted him to do, and we are satisfied with the results. We are likely to lead her to the Rainbow Derby (G1) trial, but it all depends on how well she stays healthy and healthy. Decided that we will go with her next step.”
Whistle Stop Cafe was bred by AQHA champion breeder Bobby D. Cox. This product from Mare Sinous and Mr. Jess Perry has won six of six races in 2020. Field, the cumulative income is $1,974,986. He won the National Future (G1) and Rainbow Future (G1) at Ruidoso Downs, as well as the Heritage Place Youth Park in Remington Park.

Since Laico Bird won the future of Columbus, Raton Futurity, All American Futurity and Los Alamitos, he was in 1967. She is the first two-year-old mare since her appointment as the AQHA World Racing Champion.
