Not My Note is Prompt Favorite in Johnie L. Jamison Handicap
RSS Feeds Monday, December 19, 2016
Sent to post as the 7-5 favorite in a full field of a dozen New Mexico-breds, Michael G. Weatherly’s Not My Note responded with a 2 3/4-length victory in Sunday’s $85,000 Johnie L. Jamison Handicap (R) at Sunland Park.

Not My Note covered 6 1/2 furlongs in 1:14.37, and the $51,000 winner’s share of the purse from his second career stakes win pushed his earnings to $211,411. Tracy Hebert rode the homebred 4-year-old gelding for trainer Simon Buechler.

Not My Note is one of four stakes winners from 57 starters sired by Fusaichi Zenon (JPN). A 19-year-old son of 1989 horse of the year Sunday Silence, Fusaichi Zenon won three of eight starts and earned $768,157 while racing primarily in Japan from 1999-2001.

Fusaichi Zenon entered stud in ’04, and he has sired the earners of more than $1.6 million from 10 crops. The stallion is owned by Weatherly and stands for a $2,000 fee at his farm at Anthony, New Mexico.

Not My Note is also one of two winners from as many starters produced by Best Note Yet, an unraced homebred 8-year-old mare by the Saint Ballado stallion Your Eminence. The gelding is a full brother to Sunday Rose, the third-place finisher in the 2015 New Mexico Cup Lassie Stakes (R) at Zia Park.

Not My Note’s second dam, the Arizona-bred Notebook mare Miss Noteworthy, won five stakes in New Mexico and Arizona from 2003-05, including the Dr. O.G. Fischer Memorial Handicap at SunRay Park from 2004-05. He traces back to his fourth dam, Buy A Bride, a winning and stakes-placed daughter of Slew The Bride and a half sister to Public Tradition, the winner of the $35,000 Tanforan Kindergarten Stakes at Golden Gate Fields.

Of Not My Note’s lifetime bankroll, $175,439 has been pocketed this year. The gelding has won seven of 13 starts, including the 5 1/2-furlong, $60,000 Casey Darnell Pony Express Stakes (R) at Albuquerque Downs on September 17.

Forger, a 37-1 longshot, finished second and was followed by Citizen Geller, Ten Penny Cents, Golly Gee, Whatakiss, Stormin The Jewels, Southern Fire, D E Lover, Dyno Dom, Streaks Bro, and Back Seat Thrills.

Forger is a 3-year-old gelded son of Attila’s Storm owned by R.D. Hubbard. Forger has won three of 11 outs, including the 6 1/2-furlong, $35,800 Dine Stakes (R) for New Mexico-bred sophomores at SunRay Park on June 6, and the $18,700 runner-up share of the Johnie L. Jamison purse boosted his earnings to $105,107.

A homebred 4-year-old son of the El Prado (IRE) stallion Pro Prado, Citizen Geller races for Larry and Denise Nichols’ UKUSA Stables of El Paso, Texas. The gray or roan gelding has banked $190,424 from 27 outs, and his two stakes victories include the 7-furlong, $60,000 O.D. McDonald Stakes (R) at Albuquerque Downs on June 25.
