He’s Another Who Upsets 4 Rivers John Deere Stakes
RSS Feeds Monday, January 2, 2017
Celebrating his third birthday in style, Champion Racing Stables’ He’s Another Who scored an upset victory in Sunday’s 6-furlong, $85,000 4 Rivers/John Deere Stakes (R) for state-bred sophomores at Sunland Park.

He’s Another Who defeated Go For A Stroll by three-quarters of a length while reaching the wire in 1:12.05 on a sealed track labeled “slow.” Justin Shepherd rode the chestnut gelding for trainer Casey Lambert.

He’s Another Who was sent to post at odds of 7-1 in the field of 10 and returned a $17.40 win mutuel. The gelding was bred by Sam E. Stevens and Sammy L. Stevens of Lamesa, Texas, and he became the 11th black-type stakes winner sired by Quinton’s Gold. A 20-year-old Kentucky-bred son of the Mr. Prospector stallion Carson City, Quinton’s Gold has sired the earners of more than $5.9 million from 92 starters, including multiple stakes winners That’s Who and Lady Genius.

Racing in Arizona, California, and New York from 2000-05, Quinton’s Gold won six of 27 starts and banked $234,202, and his resume included a victory in the 6-furlong, $100,000 Phoenix Gold Cup Stakes (G3) at Turf Paradise in 2002. The stallion, who entered stud in ’05, is a half brother to three stakes-placed runners, is owned by the estate of Paul D. Prather. Quinton’s Gold will stand the 2017 season for a $5,000 fee at Steve and Susie Prather’s Doubletree Farm near Hobbs, New Mexico.

He’s Another Who is the first winner from two starters foaled by Mysterious Bandit, a winning 15-year-old daughter of the Time For A Change stallion Time Bandit and a half sister to Abounding Truth, the winner of the 2006 Whimsical Stakes (G3) at Woodbine Racetrack near Toronto. His third dam, the Secretariat mare Le Mystere, produced four winners from as many starters, including the stakes-placed Gremlin Gray gelding Mystery Grey.

He’s Another Who’s fourth dam, the In Reality mare Lunar Destiny, was a half sister to three stakes winners, including Tarantara, a two-time Grade 3 winner in New York in 1984, and Bold Ruckus, the runner-up to Smarten in the ’79 Ohio Derby (G3) at Thistledown. The gelding traces back to his fifth dam, Raise A Ruckus, a daughter of Raise A Native and a half sister to two-time champion older female horse Old Hat.

Campaigned exclusively in New Mexico, He’s Another Who has won two of six outs, including a 6-furlong, $26,000 maiden-special-weight race for New Mexico-breds at Zia Park on December 13, and the $51,000 winner’s share of the purse from his first stakes victory pushed his earnings to $76,220.

El Tule ran third, 2 3/4 lengths behind He’s Another Who. Happy Hennessy, the 2-1 favorite, finished fourth and was followed by Dom Strait, Tiz Valiant, Lauras Indianmusic, Reining Pesos, Move Bingham, and Waitingonasunnyday.

Go For A Stroll races for R.D. Hubbard, who also bred the dark bay or brown son of Attila’s Storm. Go For A Stroll has won one of two starts, a 5 1/2-furlong maiden-special-weight sprint at Zia Park on November 7, and the $18,700 second-place share of the purse bumped his bankroll to $34,000.

A colt by Touchdown Ky campaigned by Jose Luis Chavez, El Tule has won two of 10 races and has earned $52,460. El Tule’s resume includes a third-place finish against open company in the 6-furlong, $50,000 Governor’s Cup Stakes at Zia Park on October 10.
