Carson City Girl Wins New Mexico Breeders Stakes
RSS Feeds Sunday, May 15, 2016
A late rally from the center of the track helped Carson City Girl score her second career stakes victory in Friday’s $46,200 New Mexico Breeders’ Stakes (RG2) for state-bred 3-year-olds at SunRay Park.

Ridden by Jaime Parga Leos and aided by an 8-mph tail wind, Carson City Girl went 400 yards in :19.593, and her winning margin was a neck from Princess Jesse. Emilio Cadena III saddled the sorrel daughter of Woodbridge for owners David E. and Sandra K. Barrett.

Carson City Girl was bred by Mac and Janis Murray’s MJ Farms at Veguita, New Mexico. The filly’s sire, Woodbridge, is an unraced 17-year-old son of the First Down Dash stallion Dash Ta Fame and a full brother to Grade 1 winner and one-time 440-yard record holder Kendall Jackson.

Since 2008, Woodbridge has sired seven stakes winners and the earners of more than $2.1 million, including graded stakes winners Woodys Allstar and Woody Dungarees. The stallion is owned by and stands for a $2,500 fee at MJ Farms.

Carson City Girl’s dam, Racetrack Barbie (TB), is a 10-year-old Arizona-bred daughter of the stakes-winning Carson City (TB) stallion Hidden City (TB). Racing from 2008-09, Racetrack Barbie earned $48,369 from seven starts, and her three wins included a 10 1/4-length victory in the 6 1/2-furlong, $50,000 Joanne Dye Stakes (R) at Turf Paradise in ’09.

Carson City Girl’s second dam, the winning Mr. Integrity (TB) mare Ms. Intepret, foaled six starters, including Lil Easy, a half sister to Racetrack Barbie who won the 2006 Ann Owens Distaff Handicap (R) at Turf Paradise. The filly traces back to her fifth dam, Gumon (TB), an unraced daughter of Gummo (TB) who produced Gum, a multiple Grade 3 winner in California from 1989-92.

Carson City Girl has raced exclusively in New Mexico, and the $27,720 winner’s share of the New Mexico Breeders’ Stakes purse increased her earnings to $168,697. She has won four of nine starts, and her resume includes a neck victory in the 400-yard, $190,119 Shue Fly Stakes (RG2) at Sunland Park on January 17.

Sent to post at odds of nearly 8-1, Carson City Girl returned a $17.80 win mutuel. Princess Jesse, the 5-2 second choice in the full field of 10, completed a $71.20 ($2) exacta payoff.

Super Star Smith finished third, a neck behind Carson City Girl, and was followed by A Blazin Flash, Major Bites, Frank N Jesse, Jesses Leader, 2-1 favorite RG Miracle, Miss Ravens Wood, and Sweet Splenda.

Princess Jesse is a homebred sorrel filly by Jesse James Jr racing for Vance Mikkelson of Belen, New Mexico. Princess Jesse has won three of eight starts, including the April 3, $85,000 Sunburst Stakes (RG3) at Sunland Park, and the $9,240 runner-up share of the New Mexico Breeders’ Stakes purse pushed her bankroll to $125,100.

A $25,000 buy at the 2014 New Mexico-Bred Yearling Sale at Ruidoso Downs, Super Star Smith races for Yaneth Cabrera. The gelded son of Woodbridge has earned $50,223 from four outs, and her 2-year-old campaign included a second-place finish, three-quarters of a length behind winner Jess Cruzin On By, in the 300-yard, $229,860 New Mexican Spring Futurity (RG2) at Sunland Park.
