Juice Is Loose, a 4-year-old One Famous Eagle stallion racing for Tom Maher and Stephen N. Williams, was a prompt 11-10 favorite in Saturday's $35,000 Two Rivers Stakes (G3) at Prairie Meadows.

Ridden by Edwin Escobedo, Juice Is Loose led at every call en route to a 1 1/4-length victory over Ferrari James, and he covered his 440-yard trip in :21.711. Jason Olmstead prepped the stallion, who earned a 103 speed index from his first career graded stakes win.

Juice Is Loose was bred in Oklahoma by Sam W. Green, and he was coming off of a wire-to-wire, half-length victory in the 350-yard, $29,000 Skip Zimmerman Memorial Stakes at Canterbury Park on August 10. All told, the stallion has won five of 20 races, and the $20,300 winner's share of the purse from his second lifetime stakes score pushed his bankroll to $135,705.

JK Wildcat Red ran fourth and was followed by Hooked On A Win, Justafamilytradition, Fire N Guns, and Dream Dynasty.
