Favored Kris Who Wins New Mexico State Fair Thoroughbred Futurity
RSS Feeds Monday, September 25, 2017

Alfredo Juarez Jr. rode Kris Who to a wire-to-wire, 6 1/2-length victory in Sunday’s 6-furlong, $187,795 New Mexico State Fair Thoroughbred Futurity (R) for state-bred Thoroughbreds.

Trained by Todd Fincher for owners Sam E. Stevens and Sammy L. Stevens of Lamesa, Texas, Kris Who stopped the timer in 1:10.20 while scoring his third consecutive win. The homebred son of the Indian Charlie stallion Indian Firewater banked the $93,987 winner’s share of the stakes-record purse.

A homebred, Kris Who was coming off of a wire-to-wire, four-length victory in the second of two trials on September 9. The gelding has won three of four starts and has earned $108,897 while raced exclusively at Albuquerque Downs thus far.

Kris Who is one of three winners from four starters produced by the winning 11-year-old Pulpit mare Harrys At Hanover, and he is a full brother to Indian H Who, the runner-up in last year’s New Mexico State Fair Thoroughbred Futurity. The gelding was sent to post as the 11-10 favorite in the full field of 12 and returned a $4.20 win mutuel.

Kama Rollin, Golden Band, Storm The Beach, Kar Keen, Ghost Of Creebear, Tee Bone, Jedi Warrior, S W Lucky Charm, One Key, and Pac Sum Heat completed the order of finish.
