FARMINGTON, N.Y. – Dugout won the $200,288 New York Breeders’ Futurity at Finger Lakes Gaming & Racetrack (FLGR) on Saturday. The talented colt took the rich stake for New York-bred 2-year-olds in a final six furlong time of 1:10.66.

The $271,423 earner owned by Richard Ravin, Patricia’s Hope and trainer Larry Rivelli remained undefeated with the three length triumph. He was guided to his third consecutive victory by Jose Valdivia, Jr.
