Ageless Miracle Snow Scores in Lineage Quarter Horse Championship
RSS Feeds Sunday, August 24, 2014
Competing in this stakes for the seventh consecutive season, Miracle Snow was a prompt 3-2 favorite in Sunday’s 400-yard, $63,500 Lineage Quarter Horse Championship (RG3), one of four New Mexico-bred Quarter Horse stakes contested at The Downs at Albuquerque.

Miracle Snow, a homebred 10-year-old gelding by champion Dean Miracle racing for Melvin Neugebauer of Manzanola, Colorado, covered his 400-yard trip in :19.353, and his margin of victory was a neck from Jess Got Issues. J. Martin Bourdieu rode Miracle Snow for trainer Jill Giles.

Miracle Snow was coming off of a head victory in the 400-yard, $50,000 Zia Quarter Horse Championship (RG2) at Ruidoso Downs. All told, the gelding has won 17 of 57 starts, and the $38,100 share of the Lineage Championship purse pushed his bankroll to $718,211.

Miracle Snow has won seven stakes, including the 2010 and ’12 editions of the Lineage Championship. He scored his first stakes victory, the $62,745 Hard Twist Stakes (RG3) at Albuquerque, way back in 2007.

Earlier on the card, Giles won the 400-yard, $60,000 Pelican Stakes (RG3) for New Mexico-bred 3-year-old fillies with Penny Snatchin. A homebred daughter of Gone To The Mountain who she also bred and owns, Penny Snatchin defeated Sparkling Heart by three-quarters of a length and earned $33,000 to increased her earnings to $108,858 from 12 starts.

Below is a recap of all four of Sunday’s races. All also-rans are listed in official order of finish. Complete coverage of the Lineage weekend races will be featured in the October issue of the New Mexico Horse Breeder magazine.
