RSS Feeds Wednesday, April 24, 2013
On Down The Road, a multiple stakes winning 5-year-old gelding racing for Lisa M. Rehburg of Mountain Center, California, heads a full field of 10 in Saturday's 1-mile, $65,000 Jack Cole Handicap (R) for New Mexico-breds at SunRay Park.

Trained by Joel Marr, On Down The Road is coming off of a third-place finish as the even-money favorite in the March 17, $85,000 New Mexico State University Handicap (R) at Sunland Park. The son of Desert God won two stakes last season, including the 1-mile, $180,480 Rocky Gulch New Mexico Cup Championship (R) at Zia Park.

On Down The Road has earned $277,719 from 14 starts. Carlos Madeira will ride the gelding from post 8.

One of the leading trainers in New Mexico, Marr will have a total of three entries in the Jack Cole. Another contender from his barn, Michael C. Stinson's Attitude E Racer, is a 5-year-old gelding by Desert God who has won four stakes, and his race record includes a neck victory in the NMSU Handicap.

Our Choice, one of the most successful claims in New Mexico racing history, drew post 5 for the Jack Cole. An 8-year-old son of Desert God owned by Stable HMA and trained by Justin Evans, Our Choice has earned $662,788 from 58 starts, but $326,111 of that bankroll has been earned since his current connections claimed the gelding for $25,000 at Sunland Park in December 2011.

The Jack Cole Handicap will be the eighth race on SunRay Park's nine-race program. Approximate post time for the stakes is 3:43 p.m. (MDT).

The complete lineup, in post position order including jockey and weight assignments and morning-line odds – Ministerial (Isaias Cardenas, 117), 12-1; Attitude E Racer (Alfredo Juarez Jr., 122), 4-1; Nuggets Please (Nancy Summers, 120), 8-1; Le Grande's Spirit (Alejandro Medellin, 118), 10-1; Our Choice (Ry Eikleberry, 122), 5-1; Groushy Apadana (Enrique Garcia, 119), 8-1; That's Who (Casey Lambert, 120), 8-1; On Down The Road (Carlos Madeira, 123), 3-1; Beau Wizer (Macario Rodriguez, 117), 12-1; and Brother Louie (Enrique Gomez, 118), 10-1.
