HIALEAH, FL—FEBRUARY 28, 2016—Carters Sixty Six dug in gamely as stablemate Ec Jet One battled back after getting bumped at the start to finish in a dead-heat Sunday afternoon in the $204,265 South Florida Quarter Horse Derby at Hialeah Park. Sprinster was moved to third after Genovese was disqualified and placed ninth for interference.

The Judd Kearl trainees could not be separated at the wire as they raced over the 440-yard course in :21.717 seconds, a 93 speed index into a 10 mph crosswind.

Enrique Carrion's homebred Ec Jet One brought a two-race win streak into the derby final that included a win in the $390,935 Hialeah Derby on January 17.

Ridden by jockey Rodrigo Vallejo, the son of leading second crop sire The Louisiana Cartel has compiled an (8) 6-0-1 record and the $61,280 winner's split today boosted his earnings total to $353,649. The bay Texas-bred is out of Pretty Girl Perry, by Mr Jess Perry.
