Infinite Bull Wins New Mexico Horsemens Association Stakes
RSS Feeds Tuesday, June 21, 2016
Infinite Bull (TB), a homebred son of King Bull (TB) racing for Gary Balzano’s Tucumcari Thoroughbreds and one of four Throughbreds in the seven-horse field, scored first stakes victory at the distance in the 870-yard, $35,800 New Mexico Horsemen’s Association Stakes (R) at SunRay Park on June 17.

Prepped by Greg Green and sent to post as the 2-1 favorite, Infinite Bull defeated Weappear (TB) by a neck in :45.126 under jockey Norberto Arroyo Jr. The 5-year-old gelding earned a 102 speed index and his second win in four outs at the distance.

Infinite Bull rallied for his win, as he had to get past Swiss Chris in the stretch.

“I had a good look at the winner on the turn,” Arroyo said. “We had a lot of horse in the final part of the race.”

Infinite Bull was making his first-ever start at SunRay Park. He was saddled for this race by Green’s assistant, Dan Morales.
“We’ve been fortunate with him,” Morales said. “He’s liked it here (at SunRay) in the mornings, so we thought he’d handle this race well.”

Infinite Bull is one of three Thoroughbred stakes winners sired by King Bull, a winning Kentucky-bred son of 1994 Eclipse award-winning horse of the year Holy Bull. A half brother to 1995 Wood Memorial Stakes (G2) winner Talkin Man and stakes winner Royal Regalia, King Bull’s 13 starters have banked more than $888,000.

Now 15, King Bull is owned by Balzano and stands at his farm in Tucumcari, New Mexico.

Infinite Bull is also one of four winners from as many starters produced by Fancy Numbers, a winning daughter of Polish Numbers and a half sister to the Golden Style, a filly who was multiple stakes placed at the Charles Town Races in West Virginia from 2002-03.

Infinite Bull’s second dam, the Phone Trick mare Gala Goldie’s Best, ran second in the 1997 Smart Halo Stakes at Pimlico and is a half sister to three stakes winners, including multiple stakes winners Gala Goldilocks and Gala de Oro. The gelding traces back to his fourth dam, Bedbug, a winning daughter of Ring For Nurse who foaled three-time stakes winner Gala Jubilee.

Raced exclusively in New Mexico, Infinite Bull has won seven of 19 races -- including five of 15 against Thoroughbreds -- and the $21,480 winner’s share of the New Mexico Horsemen’s Association Stakes pushed his bankroll to $214,115. His resume includes a wire-to-wire, half-length victory in last year’s 4 1/2-furlong, $85,270 Mt. Cristo Rey Handicap (R) at Sunland Park.

Swiss Chris finished third, 1 1/4 lengths behind Infinite Bull, and was followed by Oly Oly In Free, Beaumont Time (TB), Midnightlowdown (TB), and Sierra Ladron.

Weappear is a 4-year-old Devon Lane gelding campaigned by Ruth Summers. Weappear has won three of 13 races and has earned $72,448. The New Mexico Horsemen’s Association Stakes marked the gelding’s first-ever start at the 870-yard trip.

A 5-year-old sorrel son of the Swiss Yodeler (TB) stallion Swissle Stick (TB), Swiss Chris races for Moises Brito Hernandez. The gelding has won six of his 26 outs, and the $3,580 third-place share of the purse upped his bankroll to $114,039.
