Lady Genius, an undefeated stakes-winning daughter of Quinton's Gold, will make her first start in seven weeks in Saturday's 4 1/2-furlong, $65,000 C.O. “Ken” Kendrick Memorial Stakes (R) for 2-year-old fillies at SunRay Park.
Trained by Dallas Barton for owners W.D. Carson Sr., M.H. Carson, and Leach Racing, Lady Genius has earned $49,295 from two starts, both at Sunland Park. The filly's race record includes an 8 3/4-length victory as the 19-10 favorite in the fillies' division of the 4 1/2-furlong Copper Top Futurity (R) on April 13.
Carlos Madeira will ride Lady Genius from post 7 on Saturday.
Lady Genius' nine opponents include Copper Top runner-up Cattle Act, a homebred filly by the Phone Trick stallion Phone Home owned and trained by Cliff Lambert Sr. Cattle Act has banked $23,928 from three outs, and she is coming off of a neck victory in a May 25, 4 1/2-furlong maiden special weight sprint for state-bred 2-year-old fillies at Ruidoso Downs.
The Kendrick Memorial is the featured eighth race on SunRay Park's nine-race program. Estimated post time for the race is 3:37 p.m. (MDT).
