Hute Earns First Stakes Win in Red Hedeman Mile
RSS Feeds Sunday, February 5, 2017
Making his sophomore debut, Michael C. Stinson’s Hute scored a 1 1/4-length victory in Saturday’s $85,000 Red Hedeman Mile Stakes (R) for New Mexico-bred 3-year-olds at Sunland Park.

Hute covered his 1-mile trip in 1:37.85 while scoring his first career stakes win. Ken Tohill rode the homebred dark bay or brown gelding for trainer Joel Marr.

Hute was making his first start since December 30, when he scored a wire-to-wire, seven-length victory as the odds-on favorite in a 1-mile, $21,800 maiden-special weight route for state-breds at Sunland Park. The gelding became the first black-type stakes winner sired by Western Gambler, a 13-year-old Kentucky-bred son of Storm Cat and the unraced Gone West mare Western Eternity.

Western Gambler entered stud in 2011, and he has sired the earners of more than $334,000 from 14 starters.

Hute is also the first starter foaled by his dam, Lisa’s Pride, a winning 9-year-old New Mexico-bred daughter of the Fappiano stallion Desert God. His second dam, the winning and stakes-placed Bel Bolide mare Lisa Lide, foaled a dozen winners from as many starters, including three stakes winners, all of whom are full siblings to Lisa’s Pride -- Cross Chris Run, the winner of the 1-mile, $192,720 Rocky Gulch New Mexico Cup Championship (R) at Zia Park in 2011; Runnin Red, a two-time stakes winner in New Mexico in ’09; and 2005 Aztec Oaks (R) winner My Desert Lady.

Hute’s third dam, the winning and stakes-placed Princely Native mare Complete Order, produced eight winners, including Streakin Stacey, a half sister to Lisa Lide who won the 1992 Columbine Handicap at Arapahoe Park near Denver. The gelding traces back to his fourth dam, Victorian Order. A winning South Dakota-bred daughter of the the Chop Chop stallion Victoria Park, Victorian Order was a half sister to six stakes winners, including Dance Act, a Northern Dancer gelding and a seven-time stakes winner in Canada from 1970-71.

Hute has won two of four outs, and the $51,000 winner’s share of the Red Hedeman Mile purse boosted his earnings to $70,200. The Red Hedeman Mile marked the gelding’s first start against stakes company.

Hute was sent to post as the 9-2 third choice in the field of seven. Dom Strait, an 8-1 longshot, ran second to complete a $2 exacta payoff of $72.60.

He’s Another Who, the 7-5 favorite, ran third, 2 1/4 lengths behind Hute, and was followed by Go For A Stroll, Storming Back, Reining Pesos, and Red Duke Run.

Dom Strait is a homebred son of the Storm Cat stallion Dominique’s Cat campaigned by Tom and Sandy McKenna’s Judge Lanier Racing. The gelding has won one of seven starts and has banked $69,615, and his resume includes a second-place finish, seven lengths behind winner Happy Hennessy, in last year’s 1-mile, $140,000 Eddy County Stakes (R) for New Mexico-bred juveniles at Zia Park.

A chestnut gelding by the Carson City stallion Quinton’s Gold owned by Champion Racing Stables, He’s Another Who was stretching out in distance off of his 1 1/4-length win in the 6-furlong, $85,000 Four Rivers John Deere Stakes (R) on New Year’s Day. He’s Another Who has won two of seven races, and the $8,500 third-place share of the Red Hedeman Mile purse bumped his earnings to $84,720.
