RSS Feeds Friday, February 3, 2017
A pair of New Mexico-bred Thoroughbred stakes -- the 1-mile, $85,000 Red Hedeman Mile (R) for 3-year-olds, and the 4 1/2-furlong, $85,000 Mt. Cristo Rey Handicap (R) -- are on the docket for Saturday at Sunland Park.

Red Hedeman Mile
He’s Another Who, a stakes-winning son of Quinton’s Gold, is the 2-1 morning-line favorite in Saturday’s Red Hedeman Mile.

Trained by Casey Lambert for owner Champion Racing Stable, He’s Another Who is coming off of a 1 1/4-length victory in the 6-furlong, $85,000 Four Rivers John Deere Stakes (R) on New Year’s Day. The chestnut gelding has won two of six starts and has banked $76,220.

He’s Another Who drew post 7 and will be ridden by Justin Shepherd. His six opponents include R.D. Hubbard’s Go For A Stroll, a homebred Attila’s Storm gelding trained by Todd Fincher. A full brother to 2016 Lincoln Handicap (R) winner Stormy Day, Go For A Stroll ran second to He’s Another Who in the Four Rivers John Deere Stakes, and he has banked $34,000 from two outs.

Go For A Stroll drew the rail post and will be ridden by Tracy Hebert.

The complete lineup for the Red Hedeman Mile, in post position order including jockey assignments and morning-line odds:
Go For A Stroll (Tracy Hebert), 5-2

Mt Cristo Rey Handicap
A full field of 11 sprinters, topped by morning-line favorite Infinite Bull, has been entered in Saturday’s Mt. Cristo Rey Handicap (R).

A homebred 6-year-old King Bull gelding, Infinite Bull is trained by Greg Green for owner Gary Balzano’s Tucumcari Thoroughbreds. Infinite Bull ended his 2016 campaign with a second-place finish in the 6-furlong, $170,000 New Mexico Cup Sprint Championship (R) at Zia Park on October 30.

Infinite Bull has earned $274,235 from 23 starts while racing against Thoroughbreds and Quarter Horses, and his eight wins include the 2015 Mt. Cristo Rey Handicap.

Infinite Bull drew the rail post and will be ridden by Jorge Carreno.

Other contenders include D E Lover, a 6-year-old son of So Long Birdie racing for Leroy Martinez and trainer Tony Sedillo. The gelding is coming off of a 5-year-old campaign during which he won five of 12 outs, including three stakes, and banked $230,052.

D E Lover drew post 2 and will be ridden by Frank Reyes.

Michael Weatherly’s Not My Note, a homebred 5-year-old Fusaichi Zenon (JPN) gelding trained by Simon Buechler, drew post 9 and will be ridden by Tracy Hebert. Not My Note will be making his first start since December 18, when the gelding scored a 2 3/4-length victory as the 7-5 favorite in the 6 1/2-furlong, $85,000 Johnie L. Jamison Handicap (R).
