Here Kittykittykitty Extends Win Streak in Mesilla Valley Speed Handicap
RSS Feeds Sunday, March 09, 2014

Here Kittykittykitty recorded his fourth consecutive victory in the 350-yard, $85,240 Mesilla Valley Speed Handicap (RG2) at Sunland Park on Sunday.
Ridden by Larry Gamez, Here Kittykittykitty stopped the timer against a 12-mph head wind in :17.298, and his margin of victory was a head from Sandys Jesse. Wes Giles saddled the sorrel 7-year-old Genuine Strawfly gelding for owner Melvin Neugebauer of Manzanola, Colorado.
Here Kittykittykitty was making his first start since December 7, when he scored a neck victory as the 5-2 favorite in the 400-yard, $85,320 Jess Burner Memorial Handicap (RG1) at Sunland. The gelding was bred by Jay and Mary Lou Standefer of Roswell, New Mexico. His sire, Genuine Strawfly, is a 15-year-old son of the Special Effort stallion Strawfly Special who won two graded derbies in 2002, including the 440-yard, $220,394 All American Derby (G1) at Ruidoso Downs.
Genuine Strawfly’s top runners include multiple graded stakes winners One Diamond Kitty, Genuine American, and Jenuine Joy, and graded stakes winner Genuine Streaker. The stallion is owned by J & L Stables LLC, and he is standing the 2014 season at Dr. Leonard Blach’s Buena Suerte Equine in Roswell.
Here Kittykittykitty’s dam, One Diamond Cat, is a 13-year-old unraced daughter of two-time AQHA champion Now I Know. The mare also produced One Diamond Kitty, a full brother to Here Kittykittykitty who won three stakes from 2008-10 and who ran second to multiple champion Jess You And I in the Grade 1, $250,000 Remington Park Invitational Championship in 2010.
Here Kittykittykitty’s second dam, the Shoot No mare No Billi Jo, won the 1997 New Mexico State Fair Senorita Futurity (RG3) at The Downs at Albuquerque.
All told, Here Kittykittykitty has won 10 of 25 races, and the $51,000 winner’s share of the Mesilla Valley Speed Handicap purse pushed his bankroll to $664,824. The gelding has won seven stakes, and his current win streak includes a half-length victory in the 440-yard, $180,480 Namehimastreaker New Mexico Cup Quarter Horse Championship (RG1) at Zia Park on October 27.
Sent to post as the 13-10 favorite in the field of nine, Here Kittykittykitty returned a $4.60 win mutuel, and he teamed with Sandys Jesse, an 18-1 longshot, for a $2 exacta payoff of $73.60. Stel Gone Corona ran third, a half of a length behind Here Kittykittykitty, to complete a $1 trifecta dividend of $121.10.
Rex Hill, Bet On Ballou, Balderinas Fame CR, Dashes Best, Klassic Strawfly, and Reckless Wind completed the official order of finish.
Sandys Jesse is a 4-year-old daughter of Jesse James Jr owned by Hector Cardenas. A $45,000 buy at the 2010 New Mexico-Bred Yearling Sale at Ruidoso Downs, the mare has banked $203,305 from 17 outs, and she has won two stakes, including last year’s 400-yard, $85,000 New Mexico Horse Breeders’ Association Stakes (RG2) at Sunland Park.
Stel Gone Corona was coming off of a ninth-place run in the October 27 Namehimastreaker New Mexico Cup Quarter Horse Championship. A 6-year-old gelding by the Corona Cartel stallion Stel Corona racing for Veronica Ramirez, Stel Gone Corona has won five of 16 starts, including two graded stakes, and the $8,500 third-place share of the Mesilla Valley Speed Handicap purse boosted his earnings to $179,897.
