First Blazin Love Scores Upset Victory in Shue Fly
RSS Feeds Saturday, January 07, 2012
Ninth-fastest qualifier First Blazin Love outran his 9-1 odds to win Saturday's $286,364 Shue Fly Stakes (RG2) for New Mexico-bred 3-year-olds at Sunland Park.

Trained by Paul Jones for owners D. Johnson, Lisa Saumell, and Johnny C. Martinez, First Blazin Love went 400 yards in :19.155 under jockey G.R. Carter Jr., who has been aboard the chestnut colt in all four of his victories. His margin of victory was a half of a length from Fury Of The Storm, and his clocking was the fourth-fastest winning time in the 41-year history of the Shue Fly Stakes.

First Blazin Love was bred by Mike C. Abraham. The colt's sire, Chicks A Blazin, is a winning 19-year-old son of the Beduino (TB) stallion Chicks Beduino who ran second in the 1995 West Texas Sun Country Futurity (G1) at Sunland Park.

Chicks A Blazin's top runners include Call Me A Blazn Chic, a two-time graded futurity winner in 2011 and the fastest qualifier to this year's Shue Fly. The stallion is owned by Abraham and stands for a $2,500 fee at W.L. Mooring's Double LL Farm at Bosque, New Mexico.

One of six winners from seven starters produced by the 14-year-old First Down Dash mare Love At First Glance, First Blazin Love is a half brother to Love To Finish First, a mare by Separatist who won the $25,560 AQHA Northwest Distaff Challenge Stakes at Sun Downs in 2007.

Love At First Glance's half sister, Natovas Princess, won the '99 Kindergarten Futurity (G1) at Los Alamitos.

First Blazin Love has won four of five races, and the $134,591 winner's share of the Shue Fly purse increased his earnings to $156,472. The colt was coming off of a 1 3/4-length victory as the 13-10 favorite in the third of seven trials on December 16.

First Blazin Love returned a $20 win mutuel and teamed with Fury Of The Storm, a 21-1 longshot, for a $1 exacta payoff of $137.50.

PK Bay ran third and was followed by fastest qualifier and 13-10 favorite Call Me A Blazn Chic, Chick Town, Wind Knocker, My Soul Mate, My Big Chief, and Takin Back. Third-fastest qualifier Sammy James was a trainer scratch.

Runner-up Fury Of The Storm was three weeks removed from a one-length win in the fifth Shue Fly trial. The bay colt by Furyofthewind has won two of six starts and has banked $81,231 for his owners, SM Cattle Export Co. of Socorro, Texas, and Jaime Dominguez.

PK Bay is a chestnut Brookstone Bay gelding campaigned by David E. Barrett and J & SM Inc. PK Bay has won four of 12 outs and has earned $183,127, and his stakes resume includes second-place finishes in last year's 400-yard, $330,643 New Mexico Cup Futurity (RG2) at Zia Park, and 300-yard, $248,491 New Mexican Spring Futurity (RG2) at Sunland Park.
