Carson City Girl Wins $102,558 First Moonflash Maturity
RSS Feeds Tuesday, August 29, 2017
Carson City Girl, a 4-year-old daughter of Woodbridge racing for David and Sandra Barrett of Alto, New Mexico, sprinted to a half-length victory in Sunday’s 440-yard, $102,558 First Moonflash Maturity (R) for state-breds at Albuquerque Downs.

Ridden by Alfredo Sigala for trainer Fred Danley, Carson City Girl covered her quarter-mile trip in :21.213. The mare was sent to post at odds of 6-1 and returned a $15.80 win mutuel.

Carson City Girl was bred by Mac and Janis Murray’s MJ Farms at Veguita, New Mexico. She was coming off of a ninth-place finish, 2 3/4 lengths behind winner First Kool Moon, in the July 30, 400-yard Zia Handicap (RG2) at Ruidoso Downs, but she broke poorly and lost her path in that $50,000 race.

Carson City Girl had no such bad luck on Sunday, as she recorded a 103 speed index and her third stakes win. The mare has won six of 17 starts, and the $41,279 winner’s share of the First Moonflash Maturity purse pushed her bankroll to $274,750.

Play Misty Foreme, the 3-2 favorite in the field of nine, finished second to complete a $2 exacta payoff of $53.60. Tyger Power, Comin To Your Town, Osbaldo, Fire Stones, Dont Ever Slow Down, Dungarees Version, and Major Bites completed the order of finish.
