RSS Feeds Sunday, September 22, 2013

Diana Bringhurst’s Poblano led at every call en route to a 7 1/4-length win in the 6-furlong, $53,753 George Maloof Futurity (R) for New Mexico-bred 2-year-olds, one of three state-bred stakes run at The Downs at Albuquerque on Sunday.

Prepped by Owen Bringhurst and ridden by Brian Theriot, Poblano covered his 6-furlong trip in 1:10.79 after he’d set fractions of :22.18 and :44.29. The victory was his second in three starts, and it increased the Minister Eric gelding’s earnings to $35,137.

Poblano was a $3,000 buy at last year’s New Mexico-Bred Yearling Sale at Ruidoso Downs.

Beaumont Time ran second and was followed by Vernissage, Drip, El Maximo, Runawayrick, Some Dandy, Up Here, Wild Thunder, and Fiji Gold.

Racing for Rita J. Danley of Anthony, New Mexico, the homebred sorrel daughter of Southern Corona covered her 400-yard trip in :20,002, and she returned a $5 win mutuel as the 3-2 favorite in the full field of 10. Porfirio Cano rode Ofashionsoutherngirl for trainer Fred Danley.

Ofashionsoutherngirl has won three of 11 races, and the $24,824 winner’s share of the State Fair Breeders’ Derby purse pushed her bankroll to $41,458, of which $33,920 has been earned this season.
