Comics Cashway Makes Debut with Kendrick Memorial Victory
RSS Feeds Tuesday, May 16, 2017
Helen Nave’s Comics Cashway made her career debut with a four-length victory in Monday’s $45,000 C.O. “Ken” Kendrick Memorial Stakes (R) at SunRay Park.

Ridden by Tracy Hebert, Comics Cashway covered 4 1/2 furlongs in :53.78. Todd Fincher prepped the homebred filly, who earned the $27,000 winner’s share of the $45,000 purse.

Comics Cashway is one of 38 winners sired by Comic Genius, a winning 19-year-old son of Unbridled whose 68 starters have earned more than $1.8 million and include three official black-type stakes winners. Racing in five states between 2001-03, Comic Genius earned $108,320 from 14 outs, and his resume included a second-place finish in the 2001 Rockingham Park Derby in New Hampshire.

Comic Genius is a half brother to Quinpool, a daughter of Alydar who ran third in the ’93 Kentucky Oaks (G1) at Churchill Downs. The stallion is owned by Mark F. McCarthy and stands in Albuquerque.

Comics Cashway is also one of two winners from as many starters produced by Swapping Lanes, an unraced homebred 8-year-old daughter of The Way Home and a half sister to four-time New Mexicos-bred stakes winner Comicsperfectstorm. The filly’s third dam, the unraced Peninsula Prince mare Pinkie Blue, was a half sister to Diamond Ego, a son of Bold Ego who won three unofficial black-type stakes at Albuquerque Downs in 1991.

Comics Cashway was sent to post as the 2-1 second choice in the field of six and returned a $6.60 win mutuel. Ghost Of Creebear, the even-money choice and the only Kendrick Memorial entry with at least one previous out, ran second to complete a $2 exacta payoff of $16.80.

Orogrande, Oh So Attractive, Hot Trick and Avenue Of Fire completed the order of finish.

Ghost Of Creebear is a dark bay or brown daughter of Dome racing for Mike G. Parker. The $9,900 runner-up share of the Kendrick Memorial purse pushed her bankroll to $11,128 from three starts.

A full sister to four-time New Mexico-bred stakes winner Lady Genius and a half to three multiple stakes winners, Orogrande races for W.D. Carson Sr., M.H. Carson, and Leach Racing LLC. The chestnut daughter of Quinton’s Gold was making her debut in the Kendrick Memorial and banked $4,500 for her third-place run.
