Fastest Qualifier Woodys Allstar Returns in $290,602 Shue Fly Final
RSS Feeds Thursday, January 02, 2014
A full field of 10 newly turned 3-year-old New Mexico-bred Quarter Horses has been entered in Saturday’s 400-yard, $290,602 Shue Fly Stakes (RG2) at Sunland Park.

Fastest qualifier Woodys Allstar drew post 6 and is the 3-1 morning-line favorite. A daughter of Woodbridge racing for Joe Dee Brooks, Ted Rushing, and Lee Lewis, and trained by Mike Joiner, Woodys Allstar is coming off of a 1 3/4-length victory in the fifth of seven Shue Fly trials on December 13. That race marked her first start since April 7, when he ran third, 1 3/4 lengths behind Moonifisant, in the 300-yard, $231,438 New Mexican Spring Futurity (RG2).

Salvador Martinez will ride Woodys Allstar on Saturday.

Woodys Allstar’s nine opponents include Moonifisant, a brown colt by Sixes Royal campaigned by Peter B. Gallegos, Robert Sanchez, and Patricia Gonzalez from the barn of trainer Juan Gonzalez. Moonifisant has won four of seven races, including the New Mexican Spring Futurity, and he has earned $157,214.

Second-fastest qualifier Osaka Moon drew post 7. A brown daughter of the late Chicks A Blazin, the stakes-winning and graded stakes placed filly has banked $71,803 from six outs for owners Dosi and Norma Alvarez of La Union, New Mexico.

The Shue Fly Stakes honors the memory of Shue Fly, the AQHA world champion for three seasons in the early 1940s. The complete lineup, in post position order including jockey assignments and morning-line odds -- Moonifisant (Jaime Parga Leos), 7-2; Brooks Crown Jewels (Saul Ramirez Jr.), 20-1; Sassy Moonflash (Esgar Ramirez), 5-1; Hot Hot Baby Doll (Noe Garcia), 20-1; Mister Brooks (Sergio Rodriguez), 6-1; Woodys Allstar (Salvador Martinez), 3-1; Osaka Moon (Tanner Thedford), 9-2; One Lethal Blaze (Sergio Becerra Jr.), 10-1; Penny Snatchin (Larry Gamez), 12-1; and Kia Won (Ricky Ramirez), 8-1.
