The Oklahoma-bred Corona Carter colt finished a neck in front of Jumpn during the first of 12 divisions as the pair finished one-two among the top 10 qualifiers who will contest the $1,145,000 Golden State Million Futurity, which will be held Nov. 4. The favorite in the first division was Higher Flyer, who needed to qualify for the Nov. 4 final to remain eligible for the Los Alamitos Bonanza, which awards a bonus of $1 million to the 2-year-old who wins all three legs that make up the Bonanza. They include the three million-dollar races on the Los Alamitos schedule Ed Burke, Golden State and Los Alamitos futurities.
