Fury Of The Storm Wins NMHBA Stakes
RSS Feeds Sunday, February 19, 2012
Fury Of The Storm earned his first career stakes victory in Sunday's $110,000 New Mexico Horse Breeders' Association Quarter Horse Stakes (RG2) for state-bred sophomores at Sunland Park.

Racing for SM Cattle Export Co. of Socorro, Texas, and Jaime Dominguez, Fury Of The Storm went 400 yards in :19.124, earning a 93 speed index and recording the third-fastest winning time in the stakes' 20-year history, behind stakes-record holder Blazin N Shakin (:18.86 in 2008) and One Hot Mecanic (:19.058 in '10). His margin of victory was a neck from 4-5 favorite First Blazin Love.

Fury Of The Storm was bred by Bill and Sandy Miller. The bay colt's sire, Furyofthewind, won the 2006 AQHA California Derby Challenge Stakes at Los Alamitos and was a finalist in three graded derbies in California that season.

Now 9, Furyofthewind has sired several stakes winners, including two-time graded stakes winner Quatro Menudos and 2010 New Mexico State Fair Senorita Futurity (RG3) winner U R A Fury Lady. The son of Corona Cartel is owned by Kirk Goodfellow and stands for a $2,000 fee at Bob Moore Farms in Norman, Oklahoma.

Fury Of The Storm is the first winner from two starters foaled by Bubbles Bunny, a winning 15-year-old daughter of the Bunny Bid stallion Sail On Bunny. The colt's second dam, the winning A Smooth Bug mare A Smooth Bubble, ran third in AM News' 1993 Shue Fly Stakes (R) at Sunland Park.

Fury Of The Storm was coming off of a second-place finish as the eighth-fastest qualifier in the January 7, $286,364 Shue Fly Stakes (RG2). The colt has won three of seven starts, and the $66,000 winner's share of the NMHBA Quarter Horse Stakes purse increased his earnings to $147,231, of which $117,546 has been banked this season.

Sent to post as the 2-1 second choice in the full field of 10, Fury Of The Storm returned a $6.80 win mutuel and teamed with runner-up First Blazin Love for a $16.60 ($2) exacta. My Big Chief, a 20-1 longshot, ran third to complete a $119.20 ($2) trifecta.

Sparklin Royal, Chick Town, Untangled Vines, Dreams Happen, Lttle Lighting, RCJ Major Storm, and Latest Policy completed the order of finish.

First Blazin Love is a chestnut colt by the Chicks Beduino stallion Chicks A Blazin racing for Dwayne Johnson, Lisa Saumell, and Johnny C. Martinez. The colt has earned $179,572 from six starts, and his four victories include the January 7 Shue Fly Stakes and two state-bred futurity trials at Ruidoso Downs last summer.

My Big Chief races for Robert A. Rivera, who also trains the sorrel gelding by the Mr Jess Perry stallion Get Down Perry. A finalist in the Shue Fly and last year's $176,040 New Mexico Breeders' Futurity (RG2) at SunRay Park, My Big Chief has won three of seven outs and has banked $46,089.
