Favored That's Who Scores in Pepsi Cola Stakes
RSS Feeds Saturday, January 21, 2012
That's Who was a prompt 13-10 favorite in Saturday's $110,000 Pepsi Cola Stakes (R) for New Mexico-bred 3-year-olds at Sunland Park.

Saddled by Joel Marr and ridden by Ry Eikleberry for owners Sam and Latane Stevens of Lamesa, Texas, That's Who covered 6 furlongs in 1:10.45. The homebred gelding's margin of victory was three lengths from runner-up Grey Bird.

That's Who's victory makes him the first two-time stakes winner of the current Sunland Park meet. The gelding is one of three stakes winners sired by Quinton's Gold, a 15-year-old son of the Mr. Prospector stallion Carson City who won two stakes at Turf Paradise in 2002, including the 6-furlong, $100,000 Phoenix Gold Cup Stakes.

Quinton's Gold's 27 starters have earned more than $2.03 million and include seven-time New Mexico-bred stakes winner Lefty Who. The stallion stands for a $3,500 fee at Steve and Susie Prather's Doubletree Farm near Hobbs, New Mexico.

That's Who is also one of two winners from three starters foaled by Rama Lassie, an 11-year-old daughter of the Clever Trick stallion Hadif who won the 2003 Kachina Stakes at Ruidoso Downs and ran third in the '04 Ruidoso Oaks.

That's Who has won five of eight races, including the $110,000 Red Hedeman Mile Stakes (R) on December 31, and the $66,000 winner's share of the Pepsi Cola Stakes purse increased his bankroll to $286,770. The gelding's stakes resume includes a 1 1/2-length victory in the October 31, $151,600 New Mexico Cup Juvenile Colts & Geldings Stakes (R) at Zia Park, and a second-place finish to Desert Road in the July 31, $149,250 Rio Grande Senor Futurity (R) at Ruidoso Downs.

May Weather ran third, a half of a length behind runner-up Grey Bird. E Bar Way, Stealyndeewin, Attila's Ghost, Honshu City, Lyons Prospect, Mr. Wizard, and Tarahumar Flags completed the order of finish.

Grey Bird was coming off of a three-length victory as the 9-10 choice in a December 30, 6 1/2-furlong maiden race at Sunland Park. The gray or roan gelding has earned $47,020 from five starts for his owners, Janice Johnston and Cal and Marjorie Martin.

A bay gelding by the Two Punch stallion K.O. Punch campaigned by D. Chadwick Calvert and Moore Racing LLC, May Weather has banked $22,720 from seven outs.
