Garretsghostlygirl Wins La Senora Stakes
RSS Feeds Sunday, January 15, 2012
Garretsghostlygirl, a filly by Ghostly Moves campaigned by MJ Racing, led at every call en route to a 3 3/4-length victory in Saturday's 6-furlong La Senora Stakes (R) for New Mexico-bred sophomore fillies at Sunland Park.

Saddled by Justin Evans and ridden by Miguel Hernandez, Garretsghostlygirl set fractions of :22.36 and :45.14 before reaching the wire in 1:11.24. The winner's share of the $110,000 La Senora purse increased her career earnings to $94,590.

Garretsghostlygirl was bred by Barry Arnwine and Vikki Arnwine. The dark bay or brown filly became the 21st stakes winner sired by Ghostly Moves, a winning 20-year-old stallion by Silver Ghost who ran second to Tejano Run in the 1997 Widener Handicap (G3) at Hialeah Park in Florida.

Ghostly Moves' 170 starters have earned more than $8.9 million and include Whisper's Sister, the winner of the December 18 Enchantress Stakes (R) for state-bred 2-year-old fillies at Sunland Park. The stallion stands for a $4,000 fee at Callaway Farm at Hobbs, New Mexico.

Garretsghostlygirl is also the first starter produced by Belle de Saboteur, a winning 10-year-old daughter of the Seattle Slew stallion La Saboteur.

A $1,500 buy at the 2010 New Mexico-Bred Yearling Sale at Ruidoso Downs, Garretsghostlygirl has won three of six starts. The filly was making her first start since November 14, when she ran third in a 5-furlong, $32,900 allowance sprint for New Mexico-bred fillies at Zia Park.

Hot For You finished second and was followed by Easy Loving Who, Silence N Solitude, 17-10 favorite Quinton's Doll Who, My Kinda Pretty, Moonface, Whisper's Sister, Krickkitt, Golden Rocket, and Srita Minister.

Hot For You is a homebred daughter of the Forty Niner stallion Gold Case who has banked $96,434 from nine outs for her owner, R.D. Hubbard. The filly ran second, three-quarters of a length behind winner Our Flying Angel, in the 6-furlong, $152,720 New Mexico Cup Juvenile Fillies Stakes (R) at Zia Park on October 30.

A finalist in last year's $156,290 Rio Grande Senorita Futurity (R) at Ruidoso Downs, Easy Loving Who has won two of seven races and has earned $63,497 for owner Sam E. Stevens of Lamesa, Texas, who also bred the dark bay or brown filly by Quinton's Gold. Easy Loving Who was coming off of a four-length victory in a 6-furlong non-winners-of-two allowance at Sunland Park on New Year's Day.
