Spinning Touch is Highweight in UNM Handicap
RSS Feeds Thursday, October 10, 2013

Michael and Jeanne Fuhs’ Spinning Touch is the 123-pound topweight in Saturday’s 1 1/16-mile, $50,000 University of New Mexico Handicap (R) for state-breds at The Downs at Albuquerque.

A homebred 6-year-old son of the Hennessy stallion Touchdown Ky, Spinning Touch is trained by Jose R. Gonzalez Jr. Spinning Touch has won the last two runnings of the 1 1/16-mile Lineage Stakes (R) at Albuquerque.

Enrique Garcia will ride Spinning Touch from post 1 on Saturday.

The Fuhs/Gonzalez team will also send out Playin Tough, a homebred 5-year-old Touchdown Ky gelding who has been assigned to carry 122 pounds by Downs at Albuquerque racing secretary Jim Collins. Playin Tough has won two allowance races during the current Albuquerque meet, and he ran second, three-quarters of a length behind Spinning Touch, in this year’s Lineage Stakes.

David Cardosa gets the call on Playin Tough in the UNM Handicap, which will be the featured eighth race on The Downs at Albuquerque’s nine-race program. Estimated post time for the stakes is 4:25 p.m. (MDT).

The complete lineup for the University of New Mexico Handicap, in post position order including jockey and weight assignments and morning-line odds -- Spinning Touch (Enrique Garcia, 123), 2-1; Sapello Cantador (John Rochabrun, 119), 6-1; Jenson’s Miracle (Jimmy Coates, 121), 7-2; Gotta Move (Brian Theriot, 121), 4-1; Sight Unseen (Chase Clark, 118), 10-1; and Playin Tough (David Cardoso, 122), 3-1.
