RSS Feeds Wednesday, October 09, 2013
Dashin Ace, a sorrel gelding by Dash Ta Fame owned by Derol Hubbard and Ted Rushing, is one of 25 state-bred 3-year-olds entered in Sunday’s 440-yard New Mexico Cup Derby (RG2) trials at Zia Park.

Trained by Mike Joiner, Dashin Ace has earned $168,976 from 10 races, and his stakes resume includes a victory at odds of 35-1 in last year’s 400-yard, $294,000 New Mexico Cup Futurity (RG2). He has raced three times this year, and he was a finalist in the 400-yard, $128,000 Zia Derby (RG2) at Ruidoso Downs on July 28.

Casey Lambert will ride Dashin Ace from post 5 in the first of three trials on Sunday. The gelding’s eight opponents in the third heat include Get Down Bambi, a filly by Get Down Perry owned and trained by Jaime Aldavaz. Get Down Bambi is coming off of a half-length victory against state-bred allowance-optional claiming ($40,000) company on September 29, and she ran third in the August 25, $37,000 Pelican Stakes (RG3) at The Downs at Albuquerque.

The second New Mexico Cup Derby trial has drawn a field of eight, topped by graded stakes winners Jess Rueben James and Rex Hill. Jess Rueben James won the May 19, 400-yard New Mexico Breeders’ Stakes (RG3) at SunRay Park for owner Currie J. Maben, while Rex Hill scored a neck victory in last year’s 350-yard, $168,000 New Mexico Breeders’ Futurity (RG2) at SunRay for owners Ross Hinkins and David Hinkins of Roosevelt, Utah.

A field of eight 3-year-olds has also been entered in the third heat, headed by Eusebio V. Sanchez’s Taleas Liberty and Joan Dale Hubbard’s Storm Chasor, the second- and third-place finishers, respectively, in the Zia Derby.

The 10 fastest qualifiers from Sunday’s trials will meet in the October 27, $200,000-est. New Mexico Cup Derby final at Zia Park.
