Jess You and I Wins Champion of Champions

Jess You and I, a 15-1 outsider, pulled an upset and set a track record in Saturday's $750,000 Champion of Champions for older Quarter Horses at Los Alamitos.

Ridden by Alejandro Luna, Jess You and I broke the previous record of 21.13 seconds set by the filly Blues Girl Too in the 2007 Champion of Champions. Jess You and I become the first horse in track history to break the 21-second mark when he ran 440 yards in 20.94 seconds. The race was timed from a standing start.

Jess You and I finished a head in front of Little Bit of Baja, who was second in the 2007 Champion of Champions. About 150 yards in the race there was an accident when Ten O’clock Scholar fell while racing on the rail. Thankfully, Ten O’clock Scholar was not believed to be seriously injured.

Jess You and I is owned by Double Bar S Ranch and trained by Jaime Gomez. The horse has won 10 of 18 starts and $1,172,967. The victory makes Jess You and I the leading contender for champion older horse of 2008.
