Longshot Gonna Make You Royal Scores in By By JJ Stakes
RSS Feeds Saturday, July 27, 2013
Bowers and Seago Racing's Gonna Make You Royal outran his 14-1 odds to win Saturday's 400-yard, $20,000 By By JJ Stakes (R) for New Mexico-bred 2-year-olds at Ruidoso Downs.

Trained by Chris Zamora and ridden by Tanner Thedford, Gonna Make You Royal defeated Flashin Honey Bee by one length while stopping the timer in :19.891 and posting an 89 speed index. The $12,000 winner's share of the purse increased the sorrel colt's earnings to $13,320.

Gonna Make You Royal, a $10,000 purchase by Robert Seago at last year's New Mexico-Bred Yearling Sale at Ruidoso Downs, was bred by the Walter Merrick Estate. The colt's sire, Gonamakeyoureyesblue, is an unraced 7-year-old son of Mr Jess Perry, and a full brother to 2002 AQHA champion aged stallion Jess Louisiana Blue and a half to Grade 2 winner Louisiana Eye Opener.

Gonamakeyoureyesblue is owned by Mark Allen's Double Eagle Ranch and Dr. Leonard Blach's Buena Suerte Equine, and he stands for a $1,000 fee at Buena Suerte Equine in Roswell, New Mexico.

Gonna Make You Royal's dam, Sweetly Royal, is a winning 12-year-old mare by the Royal Quick Dash stallion Royal Shake Em. The colt's third dam, the Easy Jet mare Sweet Illusion, was a multiple stakes winner in Oklahoma from 1987-88.

Gonna Make You Royal traces back to his fifth dam, Mayflower Ann, an Oklahoma-bred mare by Tonto Bars Hank who was stakes-placed at Lubbock Downs and Albuquerque in the late 1960s.

Gonna Make You Royal was coming off of a second-place finish to Djays Dream in the sixth of 10 Zia Futurity (RG1) trials on July 12. The colt has won one of three starts.

Gonna Make You Royal returned a $30.80 win mutuel and teamed with Flashin Honey Bee, sent to post at odds of 6-1, for a $2 exacta payoff of $423.40. Boy Named Lou finished third, 1 ½ lengths behind the winner, and was followed by This Chicks A Madam, Little Bit Of Bug, Djays Dream, 5-2 favorite Corona Southerndream, Rimein N Singin, Veramonte, and Hot Hot Baby Doll.

Flashin Honey Bee is a homebred daughter of 2009 champion aged stallion First Moonflash campaigned by Dosi Alvarez, Y. Medrano, and E. Ogaz. The filly has banked $6,500 from three outs, and she was coming off of a fifth-place run in the second Zia Futurity trial.

A brown gelding by the Real Runaway stallion Gonna Ro Sham Bo racing for Joe Dee Brooks, Ted Rushing, and Lee Lewis, Boy Named Lou has earned $2,495 from three starts. Boy Named Lou was a $15,000 buy at last year's New Mexico-Bred Yearling Sale.

The By By JJ Stakes honors the horse of the same name, a New Mexico-bred gelding by JJ Shot Glass who won the 2003 All American Futurity (G1) for owner Rosella Anrin Prieto of El Paso, Texas, and trainer Juan M. Gonzalez.
