Gossip Dome Returns in Peppers Pride Handicap
RSS Feeds Thursday, February 13, 2014
Gossip Dome, a 6-year-old mare by Dome racing for Brad and Stacy Kilgroe of Pueblo, Colorado, drew post 8 for Saturday’s 1-mile, $85,000 Peppers Pride Handicap (R) for New Mexico-bred fillies and mares at Sunland Park.

Gossip Dome will be making her first start since December 8, when she ran third, four lengths behind winner Roses Desert, in the 6-furlong, $85,000 New Mexico State Racing Commission Handicap (R) at Sunland. The mare won three races last year, including the August 24, 6 1/2-furlong Carlos Salazar Stakes (R) during the Lineage program at The Downs at Albuquerque.

Alfredo Juarez Jr. will ride Gossip Dome for trainer Chris Zamora on Saturday.

Other Peppers Pride contenders include Desert Avenue, a 6-year-old Desert God mare owned by Cleber J. Massey of Abilene, Texas. Trained by Joel Marr, Desert Avenue is coming off of a third-place finish in the 1-mile, $170,000 Peppers Pride New Mexico Cup Championship (R) at Zia Park on October 28.

The Peppers Pride Handicap will be the 10th race on Sunland Park’s 11-race program. Estimated post time for the stakes is 4:04 p.m. (MST).

The complete lineup, in post position order including jockey and weight assignments and morning-line odds -- Desert Avenue (Irwin Rosendo, 118), 5-1; Soaring Dea (Aldo Arboleda, 116), 6-1; St Clair (Ruby Gonzalez, 113), 15-1; Grand Flame (Alejandro Medellin, 115), 12-1; Park Lane Lass (Dusty Shepherd, 119), 6-1; Piratz Stash (Carlos Madeira, 117), 9-2; Dont Ask Ghost (Luis H. Rodriguez, 114), 15-1; Gossip Dome (Alfredo Juarez Jr., 119), 4-1; Western Way (Enrique Garcia, 120), 7-2; and Silver Streakin Gal (Adrian Ramos, 116), 10-1.

The Peppers Pride Handicap honors the career of Peppers Pride, a now xx-year-old homebred daughter of Desert God who won all 19 of her starts and earned $1,066,085 for owner Joe Allen of Abilene, Texas, while racing exclusively in New Mexico from 2005-08. Now a broodmare residing in Kentucky, Peppers Pride has produced three as yet unraced foals, two by Distorted Humor and one by Malibu Moon.
