Diabolical Dame Returns in Carlos Salazar Stakes
RSS Feeds Saturday, August 27, 2016
Making her return to New Mexico, Diabolical Dame is one of nine state-bred fillies and mares entered in Saturday’s 6 1/2-furlong, $60,000 Carlos Salazar Stakes (R) at Albuquerque Downs.

Diabolical Dame is trained by Todd Fincher for owners Joe Dee Brooks, Scott Bryant and Derrol Hubbard, who acquired the 4-year-old filly for $25,000 at the 2013 New Mexico-Bred Yearling Sale at Ruidoso Downs. Diabolical Dame is coming off of a fourth-place finish in a 6 1/2-furlong allowance-optional claiming race at Del Mar on July 27, but she has won 10 of her 14 starts in New Mexico, including five stakes.

Diabolical Dame drew post 4 and will be ridden by Alfredo Juarez Jr. The filly’s eight opponents in the Carlos Salazar -- named in honor of the late long-time sports editor of the Albuquerque Tribune -- include R.D. Hubbard’s Stormy Day. A homebred 4-year-old filly by Attila’s Storm, Stormy Day is coming off of a three-quarter length victory in the 6-furlong, $50,000 Lincoln Handicap (R) at Ruidoso Downs on July 31.

Stormy Day drew post 5 and will be ridden by Elvin Gonzalez for trainer Bart Hone.

Stormin Creek, a 6-year-old daughter of the Clever Trick stallion Tricky Creek racing for Pacifica West Stables from the barn of trainer Dick “Flaco” Cappelucci, drew post 6 and will be ridden by Jorge Carreno. A winner of four of her eight outs at Albuquerque, the mare is coming off of a SunRay Park spring campaign during which she scored a 2 1/4-length win in the April 25, 6 1/2-furlong Russell and Helen Foutz Distaff Handicap (R).

Brian Mundell’s My Bikini Fell Off, the Carlos Salazar defending champion, ran second to Stormin Creek in the Foutz Distaff. The homebred 5-year-old Elusive Jazz mare drew post 7 and will be ridden by Ry Eikleberry.

The complete lineup for the Carlos Salazar, in post position order including jockey assignments and morning-line odds: Indian Tiva (Alfredo Sigala), 10-1; Tricky Trix (Enrique Gomez), 20-1; Desert Gambler (Gonzalo Nicolas), 15-1; Diabolical Dame (Alfredo Juarez Jr.), 5-2; Stormy Day (Elvin Gonzalez), 3-1; Stormin Creek (Jorge Carreno), 4-1; My Bikini Fell Off (Ry Eikleberry), 4-1; Renewed Vows (Roimes Chirinos), 8-1; and My Dandy Girl (J. Martin Bourdieu), 10-1.
