Gone Shoppin Draws Post 10 for Rio Grande Senorita Futurity
RSS Feeds Friday, September 1, 2017
Gone Shoppin, a homebred daughter of Southwestern Heat racing for Bobby McQueen and Dale Taylor, drew post 10 for Sunday’s 5 1/2-furlong, $134,770 Rio Grande Senorita Futurity (R) for New Mexico-bred 2-year-old fillies at Ruidoso Downs.

Trained by Todd Fincher, Gone Shoppin broke her maiden with a 1 1/4-length victory in the second of two trials on August 12. The filly is one of three winners from as many starters produced by Glory Be Mine, a 10-year-old daughter of Dome who won five stakes, including one open stakes, from 2009-10, and she is a half sister to 2015 Rio Grande Senorita Futurity third-place finisher Blaze To Glory.

Alfredo Juarez Jr. will ride Gone Shoppin on Sunday.

The other trial winner, Fast Gator, drew the rail post and will be ridden by Ry Eikleberry for owners J. Kirk and Judy Robison of El Paso, Texas, and trainer Henry Dominguez. A homebred filly by the Artax stallion Diabolical, Fast Gator made her debut with a wire-to-wire, 1 1/2-length win at odds of 13-1 in the first Senorita Futurity trial.

Fast Gator is out of Gator Prowl, a 10-year-old daughter of Roar Of The Tiger who won the 2010 Marshua Stakes at Laurel Park in Maryland. The filly is a half sister to Gator Heat, the winner of the 2015 Dine Stakes (R) at SunRay Park.

Fincher will also send out Comics Cashway, a homebred Comic Genius filly owned for Helen Nave of Hobbs, New Mexico. Comics Cashway made her debut with a four-length victory in the 4 1/2-furlong, $45,000 C.O. “Ken” Kendrick Memorial Stakes (R) for New Mexico-bred juvenile fillies at SunRay Park on May 15.

Comics Cashway is one of two winners from as many starters produced by Swapping Lanes, an unraced 8-year-old mare by The Way Home and a half sister to 2010 Rio Grande Senorita Futurity winner Comicsperfectstorm. Comics Cashway drew post 2 and will be ridden by Casey Chavez.

The complete lineup, in post position order including jockey assignments and morning-line odds:
Fast Gator (Ry Eikleberry), 7-2
Comics Cashway (Casey Chavez), 5-1
Donna Who (Ruby Gonzalez), 10-1
Passion To Win (Jorge Carreno), 15-1
Diabolical Mama (Larry Gamez), 30-1
Orogrande (Frank Reyes), 20-1
Ghost Of Creebar (Kelsi Purcell), 15-1
Hennessy Express (Roimes Chirinos), 9-2
