Gold Boundry Wins Red Hedeman Stakes
RSS Feeds Tuesday, March 1, 2016
Again displaying his fondness for the 1-mile distance, Gold Boundry led at every call en route to a head victory in the March 1, $85,000 Red Hedeman Stakes (R) at Sunland Park.

Gold Boundry covered his eight-furlong trip in 1:37.76 after setting fractions of :23.46 and :46.64 under jockey Alfredo Juarez. Todd Fincher prepped the homebred son of Quinton’s Gold for owners Bessie Prather, Steve Prather, and Dwayne Taylor.

Gold Boundry was making his first start since January 10, when the gelding ran seventh, 8 1/4 lengths behind winner Jonesey Who, in the 6-furlong, $85,000 Pepsi Cola Stakes (R). However, Gold Boundry ended his 2-year-old campaign with a wire-to-wire, 6 1/2-length win in the 1-mile, $151,480 Eddy County Stakes (R) at Zia Park on November 25.

Gold Boundry is one of 10 black-type stakes winners sired by Quinton’s Gold, a 19-year-old son of Carson City who won two stakes at Turf Paradise in 2002, including the 6-furlong, $100,000 Phoenix Gold Cup Handicap. Quinton’s Gold has sired the earners of more than $5.4 million from 79 starters, including multiple stakes winners That’s Who, Lefty Who, Lady Genius, and Lux.

A half brother to three stakes-placed runners, including the Group 3-placed Puerto Escondido, Quinton’s Gold entered stud in 2005. The stallion stands for a $5,000 fee at Steve and Susie Prather’s Doubletree Farm in Hobbs, New Mexico.

Gold Boundry is also one of two winners from as many starters foaled by A.J. Bakes, an 11-year-old daughter of the Danzig stallion Boundry. Racing primarily in Minnesota from 2007-08, A.J. Bakes won three stakes, including the ’08 Lady Slipper Stakes (R) and Minnesota Oaks (R) at Canterbury Park.

Gold Boundry’s second dam, the winning Olympio mare Linens n Lace, ran third in two stakes at Canterbury Park from 2000-01, including the ’00 Minnesota Oaks. The gelding traces back to his fourth dam, Red Bordeaux, a winning daughter of In Reality and a half sister to Vanities, the winner of the $100,000 Marie P. Debartolo Memorial Oaks at Louisiana Downs in 1989, and the Group 2-placed Safety Catch.

A Virginia-bred, Red Bordeaux produced five winners, including Houseafire, a son of Housebuster who won five stakes in three states from 1995-2000, including the $55,175 Norgor Futurity at Ruidoso Downs in ’95.

Gold Boundry has won three of his eight outs, and the $51,000 winner’s share of the purse from his second career stakes victory bumped his earnings to $173,741. The gelding’s resume includes a third-place finish, 1 1/2 lengths behind winner Back Seat Hero, in the 6-furlong, $152,100 New Mexico Cup Juvenile Championship (R) at Zia Park on November 1.

Jonesey Who, the 7-10 favorite, finished second and was followed by King Of Art, Get Er Done, Ten Penny Cents, Oh Parrdonn Me, Dyno Dom, and Annie’s Ono.

Jonesey Who was coming off of of a five-length victory in the January 10 Pepsi Cola Handicap (R) for his owners, Sam and Latane Stevens of Lamesa, Texas. The homebred Quinton’s Gold gelding has won three of six races, and the $18,700 winner’s share of the Red Hedeman Stakes purse pushed his bankroll to $105,900.

A homebred gelding by the Cryptoclearance stallion Tailfromthecrypt, King Of Art races for Gerald E. Marr. King Of Art has earned $23,420 from seven outs, and he ended his 2-year-old campaign with a five-length win in a 1-mile state-bred maiden claiming ($12,500) route at Zia Park on December 1.
