KC Royal Flush Scores Upset Victory in Challenger Six
RSS Feeds Sunday, December 18, 2011
KC Royal Flush, a homebred 4-year-old Sixes Royal gelding racing for Kathryn Maynard and Carla Feerer, rallied to win Saturday's $110,000 Challenger Six Handicap (R) for New Mexico-bred Quarter Horses and Thoroughbreds at Sunland Park.

Ridden by Tony Guymon for trainer Dominic Duree, KC Royal Flush covered 870 yards in :45.352, and his winning margin as a neck from Bullets Brother. The gelding has won three of his 11 outs this season, including the 870-yard, $50,000 John Augustine Stakes (R) at The Downs at Albuquerque on August 21.

KC Royal Flush's sire, Sixes Royal, is a 10-year-old son of the First Down Dash stallion Royal Quick Dash. From 2003-04, Sixes Royal earned $384,977 from 17 starts, and his five wins included the 2004 AQHA Derby Challenge Championship (G1) at Sam Houston Race Park.

Sixes Royal's top runners include multiple graded stakes winners Streak Of Sixes and Sixy Chamisa. He is owned by Mike Abraham and stands for a $2,500 fee at W.L. Mooring's Double LL Farms at Bosque, New Mexico.

KC Royal Flush's dam, Willie May Dash, is a winning 10-year-old daughter of Willie Wanta Dash. The gelding's second dam, the winning Sir Alibi mare My Honeys Alibi, ran second in the 1995 AQHA Northwest Juvenile Challenge Stakes at Sun Downs in Kennewick, Washington.

All told, KC Royal Flush has won five of 28 races and has earned $192,834, of which $121,009 has been banked this season. His stakes resume includes a fourth-place run in the 2009 New Mexico State Fair Senor Futurity (RG3) at The Downs at Albuquerque.

A 10-1 longshot, KC Royal Flush returned a $22 win mutuel and teamed with Bullets Brother for a $2 exacta payoff of $105. Corona Dream ran third, 1 ½ lengths behind the winner, to complete a $177.60 ($1) trifecta.

BRT Opulence, the 2-1 choice in the field of eight, finished fourth and was followed by Klassic Strawfly, Rabbit Revival, Lalumbredelospateres, and Mary For Money.

Bullets Brother is a 7-year-old gelding by Real Runaway racing for Veronica O. Gonzalez and trainer Martin Orona Sr. Bullets Brother has won 12 of 38 races, including the 870-yard, $148,240 New Mexico Cup 870 Championship (R) at Zia Park on October 30, and he has earned $437,951.

A 4-year-old Southern Corona gelding campaigned by Heysol Howlet, Corona Dream was making his first start since July 10, when he ran seventh in the 870-yard, $85,000 New Mexico Horsemen's Association Handicap (R) at SunRay Park. The one-time $7,500 claimer has won five of 19 outs, including the 2010 Getaway Stakes at Sunland Park, and he has banked $110,520.
