Go Daddy Gone Breaks Maiden in New Mexico State Fair Derby
RSS Feeds Monday, September 25, 2017

Roy Hernandez’s Go Daddy Gone, an 18-1 longshot in a field of nine state-bred 3-year-olds, broke his maiden with a neck victory in Sunday’s New Mexico State Fair Quarter Horse Derby (R).

Trained by Cynthia Gonzalez, Go Daddy Gone went 400 yards in :19.765 under jockey Alonso Rivera. The $83,583 winner’s share of the $167,166 purse pushed the Big Daddy Cartel gelding’s earnings to $117,536, of which $101,087 has been banked this season.

Go Daddy Gone out-broke his eight opponents, according to his rider. The eighth-fastest qualifier, the gelding was coming off of a third-place finish in the second of three trials on September 10.

Go Daddy Gone was bred by Famous Lane Farm LLC. Raced exclusively in New Mexico, he has won one of 15 starts, and his season resume includes a third-place finish, 1 1/2 lengths behind winner Running Dragon, in the 400-yard, $85,000 New Mexico Horse Breeders’ Association Stakes (RG2) at Sunland Park on February 19.

Hardtookiss, Metalica, Mamacita Cartel, fastest qualifier and 13-10 favorite Sophie Garcia, Mr Klee, Higher Noon, Mystic Daddy, and Moon River completed the order of finish.
