Blog Spotlight: Rex Ryan

Rex Ryan, born July 20th, 2015, is out of the ever-popular KC And All and Windy Reba. This 71-pound pup has recently been gaining attention at Wheeling Island. At the NGA Fall Meet, Rex Ryan was purchased by Steve Sarras, starting his racing career at Naples Fort Myers in November of 2016. In April of this year, Rex Ryan made the move to Wheeling Island where the track has been treating him well.

Out of Rex Ryan’s 6 starts, he’s taken home 3 Wins and 1 show. Watching Rex Ryan race, you can see that he loves the inside, hitting the board more times than not from the inside boxes. Rex Ryan has shown this in Wheeling Island’s National Futurity Stakes where he usually gets a kick of late speed in the stretch to pass the competition and take the win. While he didn’t place for round 4 yesterday, May 19th, if Rex Ryan can get an inside box for the semi-finals on Wednesday, May 24th, we can see him hitting the board again.

Revised: As luck would have it, Rex was able to get into the 2nd box in race 13 on Wednesday. We will see if he is able to capitalize on his position!

With Rex Ryan so early into his racing career, we look forward to watching him grow and can’t wait to see what he brings to the track in the future.
