NM-Bred Rocky Gulch To Be Inducted into Ruidoso Downs Racehorse Hall of Fame
RSS Feeds Friday, December 27, 2013

Rocky Gulch, the first New Mexico-bred Thoroughbred to top the million-dollar mark in career earnings, will be inducted this summer into the Ruidoso Downs Racehorse Hall of Fame.

Racing for Larry Teague of Hobbs, New Mexico, from 2003-07, Rocky Gulch earned $1,151,725 from 38 starts, and the homebred Dry Gulch gelding’s 18 wins included 14 stakes victories. Also, Rocky Gulch ran third, two lengths behind winner Hi Teck Man, in the $500,000 WinStar Derby at Sunland Park in ’04.

Rocky Gulch passed the $1-million mark in earnings in 2006. The gelding was joined in that exclusive club by Peppers Pride two years later. Peppers Pride was inducted in the Ruidoso Downs Racehorse Hall of Fame in 2011.

Rocky Gulch was trained by Terry Walker. The gelding won all five of his outs at Ruidoso Downs, including the 2003 Rio Grande Senor Futurity and ‘04 Road Runner Handicap.

Now 12, Rocky Gulch lives under the care of Walker’s wife, trainer Barbara Brown, at a farm in Hobbs.

The 2014 Ruidoso Downs Racehorse Hall of Fame class includes owners and breeders R.C. “Punch” and Suzanne Jones, trainer Carl Draper, and trainer/jockey Cliff Lambert.
