RSS Feeds Sunday, June 17, 2012
A field of six New Mexico-bred 2-year-old colts and geldings has been entered in Tuesday's 4 1/2-furlong, $75,000 Totah Stakes (R) at SunRay Park.

Quinn and Kim Jones' Key To The Venture, a bay gelding by Storm Of Goshen who is winless in three starts, is the 2-1 morning-line favorite. Racing from the stable of trainer Guadalupe Munoz Jr., Key To The Venture tops all of his Totah rivals with earnings of $31,858, and his race record includes a second-place finish to Kiss My Hennessy in the colts and geldings division of the April 14, $120,989 Copper Top Futurity (R) at Sunland Park .

Alfonso Perez will ride Key To The Venture from post 2.

Another Totah contender, Indy's Ransom, ran third, just three-quarters of a length behind Key To The Venture, in the Copper Top. The homebred Indy Wildcat gelding has banked $15,518 for his owners, Pierre and Leslie Amestoy of Albuquerque.

The Totah Stakes will be the eighth race on SunRay's nine-race midweek card, which gets underway at 3 p.m. (MDT). Scheduled post time for the Totah is 5:48 p.m.

The complete lineup, including jockey assignments and morning-line odds – Jenson's Miracle (Alfredo Juarez Jr.), 6-1; Key To The Venture (Alfonso Perez), 2-1; Storms Surprise (Macario Rodriguez), 3-1; Indy's Ransom (Isaias Cardenas), 7-2; Bolger Lane (Ry Eikleberry), 4-1; and Attila's Parting (Brian Theriot).
