Favored Rose's Desert Rallies To Win NM Racing Commission Handicap
RSS Feeds Sunday, December 11, 2011
Joe Peacock's Rose's Desert unleashed a strong stretch run to win Sunday's 6-furlong, $110,000 New Mexico State Racing Commission Handicap (R) for state-bred fillies and mares at Sunland Park.

Ridden by Juan Ochoa for trainer Todd Fincher, Rose's Desert made her three-quarter mile trip in 1:08.84, missing by just 83/100ths of a second the track record set by Rapper SS in an allowance-optional claiming race on January 18, 2009. Sent to post as the 7-5 favorite in the field of 10, the homebred 3-year-old filly returned a $4.80 win mutuel.

Rose's Desert is one of 21 stakes winners sired by Desert God, an unraced 20-year-old son of Fappiano and last year's leading New Mexico-based Thoroughbred sire. Desert God has sired the earners of more than $8.5 million from 137 starters. Owned by H. Joseph Allen of Abilene, Texas, he stands at Fred and Linda Alexander's A & A Ranch at Anthony, New Mexico.

Rose's Desert is also one of two winners from as many starters produced by Miss Glen Rose, a 10-year-old daughter of the Mt. Livermore stallion Peaks And Valleys. The filly's third dam, Pert, was an Ohio-bred mare by Damascus who won the 1983 First Flight Handicap (G3) at Aqueduct.

Rose's Desert has won four consecutive races, including the 1-mile, $182,100 Peppers Pride New Mexico Cup Fillies & Mares Championship (R) at Zia Park on October 30. All told, the filly has won four of five races, and the $66,000 winner's share of the New Mexico State Racing Commission Handicap purse increased her bankroll to $217,885, of which $212,760 has been earned this season.

Dream Kin, a 34-1 longshot, finished second, 3 ¼ lengths behind Rose's Desert. Comicsperfectstorm ran third, and Cali Baby and Soaring Goddess finished in a dead heat for fourth. Shamrock Girl, I Am Lesters Gal, Tricky R., Iplaytricks, and King's Water Lilly completed the order of finish.

A 5-year-old gray or roan mare by Desert God racing for Ramon O. Gonzalez and Homero Valera, Dream Kin earned $23,100 to push her bankroll to $159,900 from 25 starts. Dream Kin ran fourth, nine lengths behind winner La Sorpresa, in the February 19, $100,000 Sydney Valentini Handicap (R) at Sunland Park.

Comicsperfectstorm is a homebred 3-year-old filly by Comic Genius campaigned by Helen Nave of Hobbs, New Mexico, and she was coming off of a 1 3/4-length victory in the 6-furlong, $150,480 New Mexico Cup Filly Championship (R) at Zia Park on October 30. The filly has earned $275,511 from eight starts, and her six victories include four stakes wins.
