RSS Feeds Friday, September 1, 2017
Nine New Mexico-bred 3-year-olds, headed by stakes winner Go For A Stroll, have been entered in Sunday’s 6 1/2-furlong, $96,982 Casino at the Downs Derby (R) at Albuquerque Downs.

A homebred Attila’s Storm gelding trained by Todd Fincher for owner R.D. Hubbard, Go For A Stroll will be facing sophomores again off of his third-place finish, 5 3/4 lengths behind winner Shotgun Wedding, in the 7 1/2-furlong, $50,000 Land of Enchantment Handicap (R) at Ruidoso Downs on July 30. The gelding has earned $118,818 from seven starts this season, and his two wins include a come-from-behind neck victory in the 1 1/16-mile, $100,000 New Mexico Breeders’ Derby (R) at Sunland Park on March 26.

Go For A Stroll drew post 5 and will be ridden by Tracy Hebert. Hubbard and Fincher will also be represented by Another Brother, a stakes-winning Attila’s Storm gelding who ended his 2-year-old campaign with a 1 1/4-length win in the 6 furlong, $140,000 New Mexico Cup Juvenile Championship (R) at Zia Park on October 30.

Another Brother drew post 2 and will be ridden by Ruby Gonzalez.
