Lady Genius Extends Win Streak in Kendrick Memorial
RSS Feeds Saturday, June 08, 2013
Sent to post as the 2-5 favorite in the full field of 10, Lady Genius responded with a wire-to-wire, 1 ¼ length victory in Saturday's C.O. “Ken” Kendrick Memorial Stakes (R) for New Mexico-bred 2-year-old fillies at SunRay Park.

Lady Genius covered her 4 1/2-furlong trip in :52.30 while remaining undefeated in three starts. The winner's share of the $65,000 purse pushed the filly's earnings to $88,295.

Carlos Madeira rode Lady Genius for owners W..D Carson Sr., M.H. Carson, and Leach Racing LLC.

A homebred, Lady Genius is one of six stakes winners from 47 starters sired by Quinton's Gold, a 16-year-old son of the Mr. Prospector stallion Carson City. Racing in California, New York, and Arizona from 2000-05, Quinton's Gold earned $234,202 from 27 starts, and his six wins included the 6-furlong, $100,000 Phoenix Gold Cup Stakes at Turf Paradise in '02.

Quinton's Gold's starters have banked more than $2.7 million, and his top runners include multiple stakes winner That's Who and Lefty Who, and Dandy Don Who, the three-quarter length winner of the colts and geldings division of the April 13, $95,126 Copper Top Futurity (R) for state-breds at Sunland Park. A half brother to three stakes-placed runners, including 1996 Nad al Sheba Mile runner-up Takkatamm, the stallion is owned by the estate of Paul D. Prather, and he stands for a $3,500 fee at Steve Prather's Doubletree Farm near Hobbs, New Mexico.

Lady Genius' dam, Miss Einstein, is a 15-year-old daughter of the Bold Ruckus stallion Beau Genius. Miss Einstein won two stakes in New Mexico from 2000-01, including the $57,511 Kachina Stakes at Ruidoso Downs during her 2-year-old campaign.

An earner of $105,205 from 18 outs, Miss Einstein has produced five winners from as many starters, including two half brothers to Lady Genius – Double Smart, a winner of three stakes from 2009-11, including the $192,075 Rocky Gulch New Mexico Cup Championship (R) at Zia Park in '10, and Beau Wizer, the winner of the $120,000 Pepsi Cola Stakes (R) at Sunland Park in 2011.

Lady Genius' third dam, the Maryland-bred Sham mare Guest, foaled a pair of stakes winners, including Air Worthy, a multiple stakes winning son of Air Forbes Won who won the Grade 3, $100,000 Stephen Foster Handicap at Churchill Downs in 1989.

Lady Genius was making her first start since April 13, when she led every call win the fillies' division of the 4 1/2-furlong, $88,389 Copper Top Futurity (R) at Sunland Park as the 19-10 favorite.

Lady Genius returned a $2.80 win mutuel and teamed with runner-up Unofficial Winner – a 13-1 longshot – for a $2 exacta payoff of $18.40. Got Aces, the 7-1 second choice, finished third, 6 ½ lengths behind the winner, to complete a $98.40 ($2) trifecta.

D E Come On ran fourth and was followed by Lady Riesling, Cattle Act, Aednat, Tizzy Devil, Next Sangay, and Little Gold Dust.

A $45,000 buy at last year's New Mexico-Bred Yearling Sale at Ruidoso Downs, Unofficial Winner is a bay daughter of Attila's Storm campaigned by Joe Dee Brooks, Lee Lewis, Ted Rushing, Dale Taylor, and Scott Bryant. The filly has earned $14,980 from two races.

Got Aces is a homebred dark bay or brown filly by the Artax stallion Diabolical. She earned $6,500 while finishing third in her career debut for owners J. Kirk and Judy Robison of El Paso, Texas.
