Funnyoushouldask is Top Weight in Foutz Distaff
RSS Feeds Thursday, April 17, 2014
Terrine G. Ransier’s Funnyoushouldask has been assigned to carry top weight of 123 pounds in Saturday’s 6 1/2-furlong, $45,000 Russell & Helen Foutz Distaff Handicap (R) for New Mexico-bred fillies and mares at SunRay Park.

A 6-year-old mare by the Rubiano stallion Reuben trained by Jose R. Gonzalez Jr., Funnyoushouldask is coming off of a second-place finish as the 19-10 favorite in the 5 1/2-furlong, $85,000 La Coneja Stakes (R) at Sunland Park. The mare ran fourth, 3 1/2 lengths behind winner Devon’s Spirit, in last year’s Foutz Distaff.

Alejandro Medellin, who rode Funnyoushouldask in all four of her outs during the recently concluded Sunland meet, will ride the mare from post 8 on Saturday.

Tricky R., a 7-year-old daughter of Favorite Trick racing for Ruth Summers from the barn of trainer Camie Telford, drew the rail post in the field of eight. The mare has won four consecutive races, including the La Coneja, and racing secretary Jim Collins has assigned her to tote 122 pounds.

Nancy Summers has been again named to ride Tricky R. in the Foutz Distaff.

Other contenders include Juan Carlos Gutierrez’s Western Way, a 5-year-old mare by The Way Home who won the 1-mile, $85,000 Peppers Pride Handicap (R) at Sunland Park in February; and Gossip Dome, a stakes-winning 6-year-old daughter of Dome racing for Pesikan and Kilgroe Stables.

The complete lineup, in post position order including jockey and weight assignments and morning-line odds -- Tricky R. (Nancy Summers, 122), 3-1; Gossip Dome (Alfredo Juarez Jr., 120), 9-2; C C Manor (Miguel Fuentes Jr., 117), 12-1; Soaring Dea (Elvin Gonzalez, 118), 10-1; Western Way (Enrique Garcia, 121), 7-2; Swedish Goddess (Aldo Arboleda, 119), 8-1; Applelina (Enrique Gomez, 116), 20-1; and Funnyoushouldask (Alejandro Medellin, 123), 5-2.

The Russell & Helen Foutz Distaff Handicap honors the memory of Russell and Helen Foutz, prominent figures in the Farmington area for several decades and longtime Thoroughbred breeders in New Mexico.
