My Big Chief Scores Victory in NM Quarter Horse Breeders’ Championship
RSS Feeds Saturday, October 26, 2013
Lorenzo Cano’s My Big Chief sprinted to a half-length win in Saturday’s $37,000 New Mexico Quarter Horse Breeders’ Championship (RG3) at The Downs at Albuquerque.

Prepped by Robert Rivera, My Big Chief went 440 yards in :21.527 and earned a 92 speed index under jockey Flavio Lozano. The 4-year-old gelding by Get Down Perry was earning his second career stakes victory, and the $22,200 winner’s share of the purse pushed his bankroll to $143,196.

My Big Chief was bred by Chad McCallum. The gelding’s sire, Get Down Perry, is a winning and graded stakes placed 11-year-old son of AQHA champions Mr Jess Perry and Royal Down Dash. Racing from 2004-07, Get Down Perry earned $159,677 from 24 outs, and his race record included a second-place finish to champion Be A Bono in the ‘06 Vessels Maturity (G1) at Los Alamitos.

My Big Chief’s dam, Majorly Easy, is a 11-year-old daughter of the Rime stallion Major Rime.

Campaigned exclusively in New Mexico, My Big Chief has won seven of 19 races, including last year’s 400-yard, $68,603 New Mexico State Fair Breeders’ Derby (RG3) at The Downs at Albuquerque as the fastest qualifier. The gelding was coming off of a third-place finish in the 400-yard, $37,000 Lineage Championship (RG3) on August 25.

My Big Chief returned a $9.20 win mutuel as the 7-2 second choice in the field of six. Osbaldo, the 9-10 favorite, finished second to complete a $2 exacta payoff of $14.20. Aful Alibi ran third, a half of a length behind the winner, to round out a $2 trifecta return of $36.

Seacrest Out, Visible Injun, and Little Miss Kona completed the order of finish.

A homebred 4-year-old Jesse James Jr owned by Hubaldo Solis of Peralta, New Mexico, Osbaldo has won nine of 19 races, including two stakes during the current Albuquerque meet -- the August 25, 400-yard Lineage Championship, and the September 28, 220-yard Zoom Zoom Zoom Stakes. The $7,400 runner-up share of the New Mexico Breeders’ Championship purse pushed his bankroll to $302,019, of which $232,806 was earned during his 2-year-old season.

Aful Alibi was one of two fillies or mares entered in the race. The 3-year-old daughter of the Strawfly Special stallion Genuine Strawfly, who races for Joel Varela Sr., has won three of 12 starts and has earned $72,606, of which $60,570 has been banked from seven races this season, and her race record includes a one-length victory in the 400-yard, $65,000 Tommy “Duke” Smith Stakes (RG3) for sophomore fillies at SunRay Park on June 22.
