Bryn’s Fancy Pants Rebounds to Win NM State Racing Commission Handicap
RSS Feeds Monday, December 19, 2016
Making her first start against older distaffers, Bryn’s Fancy Pants rallied to win Sunday’s 6-furlong, $85,000 New Mexico State Racing Commission Handicap (R) at Sunland Park.

Bryn’s Fancy Pants defeated odds-on favorite Diabolical Dame by a half of a length while stopping the timer in 1:08.36, missing by less than one second the track record of 1:07.60 set by Ribald in a starter-allowance race on January 3, 2012. Alfredo Juarez Jr. rode the homebred 3-year-old filly for owners Dale Taylor, Carey Taylor, and Jon Hogg, and trainer Todd Fincher.

Bryn’s Fancy Pants was coming off of a sixth-place finish in the 6-furlong, $140,000 New Mexico Cup Oaks (R) at Zia Park on October 30, a race which broke her five-race win streak. The filly is one of two black-type stakes winners sired by Southwestern Heat, a stakes-winning 12-year-old son of the Mr. Prospector stallion Gone West and 2001 champion 3-year-old filly Xtra Heat.

Racing in five states from 2006-08, Southwestern Heat won four of 17 outs and earned $155,340, and his resume included a second-place finish in the ’07 Hirsch Jacobs Stakes (G3) at Pimlico. He has sired 51 starters and the earners of more than $1.4 million from three crops, including 2015 Pepsi Cola winner Southern Fire. The stallion is owned by a partnership, and he will stand the 2016 season for a $2,500 fee at Fred and Linda Alexander’s A & A Ranch at Anthony, New Mexico.

Bryn’s Fancy Pants’ dam, Fan’s Cat, has foaled two winners from as many starters. A 9-year-old daughter of the Storm Cat stallion Devon Lane, Fan’s Cat won the 2011 Lincoln Handicap (R) at Ruidoso Downs.

Bryn’s Fancy Pants’ second dam, the winning Ontario-bred Geiger Counter mare Little Fan, produced three stakes winners, two of whom are half brothers to Fan’s Cat: Geiger Gold, a Sunday Minister gelding who won the $92,663 Totah Futurity (R) at SunRay Park in ’04, and Moody Slew, a gelded son of Slew Mood who won three stakes at Turf Paradise from 2002-03.

Bryn’s Fancy Pants traces back to her fourth dam, Lucinda Light (IRE). A stakes-winning mare by the Aureole (GB) stallion Laser Light (GB), Lucinda Light foaled the earners of more than $1.07 million, including Granacus, the winner of the 1988 Blue Grass Stakes (G1) at Keeneland.

Campaigned exclusively in New Mexico, Bryn’s Fancy Pants has won six of seven starts and has earned $205,900. The filly’s four stakes wins include last year’s 6-furlong, $85,000 La Senora Stakes (R) at Sunland Park, and this year’s 5 1/2-furlong, $50,000 Petticoat Stakes at Albuquerque Downs and 5 1/2-furlong, $50,000 Sierra Starlet Handicap at Ruidoso Downs.

Desert Stepper ran third, 3 1/4 lengths behind Bryn’s Fancy Pants. Tijuana, Dust Alert, My Bikini Fell Off, Tilla Cat, and Tylers Dixie Chick completed the order of finish.

Diabolical Dame was coming off of a Zia Park fall campaign during which the 4-year-old filly scored a 6 1/4-length victory as the 7-10 favorite in the 6-furlong, $140,000 New Mexico Cup Distaff Sprint Stakes (R) on October 30. A daughter of Diabolical and a $25,000 yearling purchase at the 2013 New Mexico-Bred Sale at Ruidoso Downs, Diabolical Dame has won 11 of 19 outs, including six stakes, and has earned $457,980 for her owners, Joe Dee Brooks, Scott Bryant, and Derrol Hubbard.

Desert Stepper is campaigned by L Squared Racing LLC and Joe Allen of Abilene, Texas. A homebred 4-year-old filly by the late Desert God, Desert Stepper has won four of 17 starts and has banked $132,630, and her resume includes a second-place finish, a head behind stablemate Zasha, in the February 27, 1-mile Peppers Pride Handicap (R) at Sunland.
