A Super Sonic Boom Breaks Maiden in NM Breeders Futurity
RSS Feeds Tuesday, May 17, 2016
A sharp break from his outside post helped eighth-fastest qualifier A Super Sonic Boom break his maiden in Sunday’s 350-yard, $101,680 New Mexico Breeders’ Futurity (RG3) at SunRay Park.

Ridden by Jaime Parga Leos and sent to post at odds of 6-1, A Super Sonic Boom defeated 21-1 longshot Frost Dalena by a neck in :17.555. Ken Grisham prepped the homebred gray son of freshman sire Big Daddy Cartel for owner Hubaldo Solis of Peralta, New Mexico.

A Super Sonic Boom was coming off of a fourth-place finish, 1 3/4 lengths behind fastest qualifier Hard Not To Sing, in the last of three Breeders’ Futurity trials on April 29. The colt’s sire, Big Daddy Cartel, is a winning 7-year-old son of the Holland Ease stallion Corona Cartel and the graded stakes winning Mr Eye Opener mare Miss Racy Eyes.

Racing at Ruidoso Downs in 2011, Big Daddy Cartel earned $121,800 from five outs, and he was a finalist in the $2.4-million All American Futurity (G1) and $700,000 Rainbow Futurity (G1). The stallion is a half brother to stakes winner Racy La Jolla and is owned by and stands for a $3,500 fee at Mac and Janis Murray’s MJ Farms at Veguita, New Mexico.

A Super Sonic Boom’s dam, Strawberryberryfast, is a 14-year-old daughter of the Strawfly Special stallion Strawflyin Buds. The colt traces back to his fourth dam, Topless Dancer, a stakes-placed mare by the Native Dancer (TB) stallion Texas Dancer (TB).

A Super Sonic Boom made his debut with a seventh-place finish in a 300-yard New Mexican Spring Futurity (RG2) trial at Sunland Park on April 8. The $61,008 winner’s share of the New Mexico Breeders’ Futurity purse pushed his bankroll to $47,920 from three races.

A Super Sonic Boom returned a $15.20 win mutuel and teamed with Frost Dalena for a $222.60 ($2) exacta. My Moon Crest finished third, a half of a length behind the winner, to complete a $1,991.90 ($1) trifecta.

Genuine High ran fourth and was followed by Go Daddy Gone, Hard Not To Sing, Corona Bud, 3-1 favorite KG Miracle, VMR Rebel, and Raise Your Style.

Frost Dalena is a gray daughter of Chicks Regard owned by Jeff Caron, who acquired the filly for $9,700 at last year’s New Mexico-Bred Yearling Sale at Ruidoso Downs. The $20,336 runner-up share of the New Mexico Breeders’ Futurity pursed increased her earnings to $18,652 from two outs.

A sorrel filly by champion First Moonflash, My Moon Crest races for Faustino Martinez and Monce Chavez. My Moon Crest has banked $11,920 from her two starts.
