NM-Bred Filly Easy Loving Who Entered in Island Fashion Stakes
RSS Feeds Wednesday, February 22, 2012
Easy Loving Who, a New Mexico-bred racing for Sam E. Stevens of Lamesa, Texas, is one of nine 3-year-old fillies entered in Sunday's $50,000 Island Fashion Stakes at Sunland Park.

The 1-mile Island Fashion serves as the major local prep for the 1 1/16-mile, $200,000 Sunland Park Oaks on March 25.

Easy Loving Who is a dark bay or brown daughter of Quinton's Gold who has won two of seven races and has earned $63,497 while facing only state-bred competition thus far. Trained by Joel Marr, the filly is coming off of a third-place finish in the 6-furlong, $100,000 La Senora Stakes (R) on January 14.

Easy Loving Who's eight opponents include Tommy Town Thoroughbreds LLC's Take Me Away Today and Stonestreet Stables LLC's Glinda The Good. A homebred chestnut filly by the Gilded Time stallion Old Topper, Take Me Away Today scored an upset victory in the 6 1/2-furlong, $50,000 El Paso Times Stakes on January 22.

Glinda The Good is a homebred daughter of Hard Spun who will be making her first start of the year in the Island Fashion. The filly ran second in last year's $75,000 Blue Hen Stakes at Delaware Park and third in the 1-mile, $173,400 Pocahontas Stakes (G3) at Churchill Downs.

The Island Fashion shares the weekend spotlight with Saturday's 1 1/16-mile, $150,000 Borderland Derby, which serves as the major local prep for the Grade 3, $800,000 Sunland Derby on March 25. The Borderland Derby has drawn a field of seven, including J. Kirk and Judy Robison's Isn't He Clever.

Isn't He Clever made his Sunland Park debut on December 30, as the Kentucky-bred gelding by Smarty Jones scored a convincing 11 3/4-length win in the $104,200 Riley Allison Futurity. Isn't He Clever is coming off of a fourth-place finish in the February 4, $200,000 Robert B. Lewis Stakes (G2) at Santa Anita Park.
