RSS Feeds Wednesday, April 25, 2012
Stable HMA's Our Choice will put his four-race winning streak on the line in Saturday's 1-mile, $110,000 Jack Cole Handicap (R) at SunRay Park.

Trained by Justin Evans, Our Choice was voted the top New Mexico-bred Thoroughbred colt or gelding sprinter during the 2011-12 Sunland Park meet, which ended April 17. The 7-year-old gelding by the Fappiano stallion Desert God won four of his six starts at Sunland, including the 4 1/2-furlong, $110,000 Mt. Cristo Rey Handicap (R) for state-breds on March 10.

Our Choice was claimed by his current owners for $25,000 on December 27. Since then, the gelding has earned $135,000 from four outs.

Our Choice's nine opponents include Barbara M. Coleman's Smash Dancer and Roger K. Beasley and Leach Racing's Double Smart. A homebred 5-year-old gelding by the late Robyn Dancer, Smash Dancer has banked $279,068 from 21 races, and his six wins include the 6-furlong, $182,690 New Mexico Cup Sprint Championship (R) at Zia Park in 2010.

The Jack Cole will mark Smash Dancer's first career start at the 1-mile distance.

Double Smart is a homebred 6-year-old son of the Afternoon Deelites stallion Premeditation. The gelding is coming off of a third-place finish in the 1-mile and 70-yard, $110,000 New Mexico State University Handicap (R) at Sunland on March 18.

Post time for the Jack Cole is scheduled for 4:31 p.m. (MDT). The complete lineup, in post position order including jockey and weight assignments and morning-line odds – Smash Dancer (Casey Lambert, 120), 7-2; Nuggets Please (Ricardo Jaime, 116), 20-1; Bigtruck El Paso (Jose L. Rivera Jr., 116), 20-1; Gotta Move (Miguel Hernandez, 116), 15-1; Double Smart (Duane Sterling, 118), 9-2; Our Choice (Ry Eikleberry, 120), 5-2; Brother Louie (Enrique Gomez, 117), 8-1; Rig's Runner (Macario Rodriguez, 116), 12-1; Attitude E Racer (Joe Martinez, 118), 5-1; and On Down The Road (Alfredo Juarez Jr., 117), 10-1.
