NM-Bred Gonna Cha Cha Wins All American Juvenile
RSS Feeds Monday, September 03, 2012
Cody Wainscott rode Gonna Cha Cha to a neck victory in Monday's 440-yard, $84,000 All American Juvenile Stakes (R) at Ruidoso Downs.

Saddled by Juan Gonzalez for owners Norma Alvarez, Brenda Alvarez, and Debra Laney, Gonna Cha Cha covered his quarter-mile trip in :21.864 while earning his second stakes victory. The $21,990 winner's share of the purse increased the registered New Mexico-bred gelding's earnings to $196,172.

Gonna Cha Cha was bred by Dosi and Norma Alvarez of La Union, New Mexico, the owners of Lazy A Farm in nearby Anthony. The gelding's sire, Gonna Ro Sham Bo, is an 8-year-old son of the Runaway Winner stallion Real Runaway who won the $205,927 Ruidoso Horse Sale Futurity (RG2) in 2006.

Gonna Cha Cha represents Gonna Ro Sham Bo's first stakes winner. The stallion stands for a $1,500 fee at Fred and Linda Alexander's A & A Ranch in Anthony, New Mexico.

All told, Gonna Cha Cha has won four of five starts, and his race record includes a head victory in the 400-yard, $395,028 Zia Futurity (RG1) for New Mexico-breds at Ruidoso Downs on July 29. The gelding, who was supplemented by his connections to the All American Futurity trials for $50,000, was coming off of a second-place finish to Captain Strawfly in the second of 26 trials on August 16.

Sent to post as the 3-1 second choice in the field of nine, Gonna Cha Cha returned an $8.60 win mutuel. Runner-up Fastpass Regard finished second to complete a $2 exacta payoff of $55.

A Dream To Remember, 13-10 favorite Lighting Regard, Shaker Mountain, Jess A Valentine, Spoiled Jess, Santy Claus, and CR Sweet Te completed the order of finish. A stewards' inquiry after the race resulted in no change to the original order of finish.

Fastpass Regard is an Oklahoma-bred gelding by the Chicks Beduino stallion Chicks Regard. A homebred, Fastpass Regard has won one of 10 races and has banked $26,923 for his owner, KH Logax Inc. of Oro Valley, Arizona. The gelding was coming off of a second-place finish to Prince Of Alexander in the sixth All American Futurity trial, and his stakes record includes a fourth-place finish in the August 4, $60,030 John Deere Ruidoso Juvenile Challenge (G3).

An Oklahoma-bred filly by the Holland Ease stallion Corona Cartel, A Dream To Remember finished a half of a length behind Gonna Cha Cha. A Dream To Remember has earned $15,237 from five races for her owners, R.D. Hubbard, Johnny D. Cope and Henry “Butch” Southway.
