Sent to post at odds of nearly 13-1, Incoho Tes sprinted to her first career stakes win in Sunday's 400-yard, $65,000 Four Corners Senora Stakes (RG3) for New Mexico-bred distaffers at SunRay Park.
Incoho Tes covered her 400-yard trip in :19.449 to earn a 93 speed index, and her winning margin was a nose from stablemate and 16- l longshot Maggie Get Down. Manuel Gutierrez rode the 7-year-old gray daughter of Rabbits Rainbow for owner and trainer Juan D. Torres.
Incoho Tes was bred by Mr. and Mrs. R.C. Jones. The mare's sire, Rabbits Rainbow, is a 17-year-old son of the By Yawl stallion Yawls Rabbit who earned $270,757 while racing in New Mexico from 1998-2001. A multiple graded stakes winner, Rabbits Rainbow's 14 wins included victories in the 1998 West Texas Sun Country (G1) and New Mexico State Fair Senor (RG3) futurities, and the '99 Shue Fly Stakes (R) at Sunland Park.
Rabbits Rainbow's top starters include 2008 New Mexico Cup Futurity (RG1) winner Rabbit Revival, graded stakes winner Rainbows N Diamonds, and stakes winner Cowboy Got Game. Owned by the 21 Partnership and Rodolfo Chavez, he stands for a $1,500 fee at Rancho El 21 in Chihuahua, Mexico.
Incoho Tes' dam, Major Kia, is a winning 11-year-old mare by Major Rime. Incoho Tes' half brother, the Brookstone Bay colt RCJ Major Storm, won last year's 400-yard, $50,000 Hard Twist Stakes (RG3) at The Downs at Albuquerque and ran second to First Blazin Love in the 440-yard, $208,321 New Mexico Cup Derby (RG2) at Zia Park.
Incoho Tes' second dam, the unraced Mr Eye Opener mare Pakea Kai, produced Pakea Bay, a gelding by Brookstone Bay who won last season's 870-yard, $50,000 John Augustine Stakes (R) at Albuquerque and finished second to Visible Injun in the 2011 New Mexico State Fair Breeders' Derby (RG3).
Incoho Tes traces back to her third dam, Rule The Deck. A multiple stakes winning daughter of Bold Ruler (TB) stallion Scout Leader (TB), Rule The Deck foaled Kuhi Kuhi, a mare by Ronas Ryon who won five stakes in New Mexico from 1994-98, including the Grade 3 Mr Jet Moore Stakes at Ruidoso Downs in 1996.
Incoho Tes has won four of 16 races and has banked $80,360. The mare was coming off of a three-quarter length victory in a 350-yard non-winners-of-three $20,000 claiming sprint for New Mexico-breds at Sunland Park on March 26. The Four Corners Senora marked the one-time $5,000 claimer's first start against stakes company.
Incoho Tes returned a $27.80 win mutuel and paired with runner-up Maggie Get Down for a $2 exacta payoff of $267.60. WDC Wendys Wine, the 1-5 favorite in the field of seven, ran third, a head behind the winner, to complete a $244 ($1) trifecta.
Sparklin Royal, Gonna Dash, Desert Delight Cash, and Smafricate completed the order of finish.
A 4-year-old mare by the Mr Jess Perry stallion Get Down Perry, Maggie Get Down races for Socorro Medrano from the barn of Juan Torres. Maggie Get Down has banked $34,913 from 14 outs, and her two career wins have come against claiming company at Ruidoso Downs and Sunland Park.
WDC Wendys Wine was coming off of a third-place finish in the 440-yard, $107,370 Bank of America Sunland Park Challenge (G2) on April 7. A 4-year-old daughter of the unraced Dash Ta Fame stallion Woodbridge campaigned by Alonso and Sylvia Aranda, WDC Wendys Wine has won four of 14 races, and the $6,500 third-place share of the Four Corners Senora Stakes purse pushed her bankroll to $77,418, of which $44,537 has been earned this season.
