RSS Feeds Friday, August 8, 2014

A total of 274 broodmares and New Mexico-bred yearling Thoroughbreds and Quarter Horses have been consigned to this year’s New Mexico-Bred Sale, to be held August 15-16 at the Horse Sale Pavilion at Ruidoso Downs.

The sale will consist of 238 yearlings -- 137 Quarter Horse and 101 Thoroughbred -- and 36 broodmares. The Quarter Horse yearlings will sell on August 15, and the broodmares and Thoroughbred yearlings will sell the following day.

W.L. Mooring’s Double LL Farm of Bosque, New Mexico, is the leading consignor with 69 head, 43 of which are Quarter Horse yearlings. One of the yearlings, Royal In Love (Hip No. 5), is a gray daughter of Sixes Royal and the First Down Dash mare Love At First Glance. The filly is a half sister to two stakes winners, including multiple graded stakes winner First Blazin Love.

Another member of the Double LL Quarter Horse consignment, Willie Flash Me (Hip No. 11), is a sorrel colt by champion and 2013 leading freshman sire First Moonflash out of the multiple graded stakes winning Calyx mare Willie Call Me. Willie Flash Me is a half brother to multiple graded stakes winner Call Me A Blazn Chic and graded stakes winner and Grade 1 finalist Makin Willies.

Double LL’s Thoroughbred consignment includes an unnamed chestnut son of the Swiss Yodeler stallion Swissle Stick (Hip No. 167). The colt is a half brother to Silver Expression, a multiple stakes winning filly who won the $171,000 New Mexico Cup Juvenile Fillies’ Stakes (R) at Zia Park in 2006.

Weatherly Horse Farms of Anthony, New Mexico, has consigned 35 head to the sale, all but one of which are Thoroughbreds. The Weatherly consignment includes Better Go Trixie (Hip No. 152), a gray or roan daughter of Your Eminence and the stakes-winning B.G.’s Drone mare Miss Trixie. Better Go Trixie is a half sister to three-time stakes winner Zenon’s Star.

Fred and Linda Alexander’s A & A Ranch of Anthony has consigned 19 head, 16 Thoroughbreds and three Quarter Horses, including Golden Hope (Hip No. 217). A chestnut colt by Quinton’s Gold out of the stakes-winning Snowbound mare Snowbound N Delmar, Golden Hope is a half brother to multiple stakes winner Awintersdream.

Mac and Janis Murray’s MJ Farms of Veguita, New Mexico, is the sale’s second-leading Quarter Horse consignor with 30 head. The MJ Farms consignment includes Would Be A Bullet (Hip No. 40), a gelded son of Woodbridge and 1993 Remington Park Futurity (G1) winner Bullet Bullion; Wood Be Charming (Hip No. 98), a sorrel daughter of Woodbridge and Grade 2 winner Ace Crystal Charm whose half brother, Dashin Ace, won the $293,550 New Mexico Cup Futurity (RG2) at Zia Park in 2012; and Jessa Smoocher (Hip No. 127), a sorrel filly by Jesse James Jr and a full sister to graded stakes winner Rex Hill.
Several graduates of last year’s New Mexico-Bred Sale are stakes winners, including Crowson Racing’s Zuccardi, a $38,000 yearling buy who won the June 14, $340,699 Mountain Top Quarter Horse Futurity (RG3) at Ruidoso Downs.
