Roll Bloomers Roll Rallies to Win Dessie & Fern Sawyer Futurity
RSS Feeds Sunday, September 25, 2011
Patiently ridden by Don Frazier, Roll Bloomers Roll rallied to win Sunday's $68,864 Dessie & Fern Sawyer Futurity (R) for New Mexico-bred 2-year-old fillies at The Downs at Albuquerque.

Roll Bloomers Roll covered her 6-furlong trip in 1:11.25 after closing on the early fractions of :22.26 and :44.69 set by My Kinda Pretty and CC Manor, and her margin of victory was 1 ¼ lengths from maiden Mickeys Last Dance. Fred Danley saddled the homebred filly for his wife, Rita Danley.

Roll Bloomers Roll is one of three stakes winners sired by Roll Hennessy Roll. An 11-year-old son of the Storm Cat stallion Hennessy, Roll Hennessy Roll won three stakes during his 2-year-old campaign, including the $64,885 Ruidoso Thoroughbred Futurity on a sloppy track at Ruidoso Downs, and the Grade 3, $125,000 Hollywood Prevue Stakes at Hollywood Park.

Roll Hennessy Roll has sired the earners of more than $1.1 million from 51 starters, including 2008 Copper Top Futurity (R) winner Bewild Hennessy. The stallion is owned by Fred Alexander and Brad King, and he stands for a $2,500 fee at A & A Ranch at Anthony, New Mexico.

One of seven winners from as many starters produced by the winning 14-year-old Gilded Time mare Gold Bloomers, Roll Bloomers Roll is a half sister to Blooming Pleasure, a mare by Lesters Boy who ran second in the 2007 Dessie & Fern Sawyer Futurity (R), and Go To Gold, a 3-year-old Lesters Boy filly who ran third in Shamrock Girl's 2011 La Senora Handicap (R) at Sunland Park.

Roll Bloomers Roll ran second, two lengths behind Sandia Sonata, in the second of two Dessie & Fern Sawyer Futurity trials on September 10. All told, the filly has won two of six races, including the fillies division of the April 16, $125,166 Copper Top Futurity (R) at Sunland, and the winner's share of the purse increased her bankroll to $119,740.

Roll Bloomers Roll's record also includes a third-place finish to Our Flying Angel in the 5 1/2-furlong, $156,290 Rio Grande Senorita Futurity (R) at Ruidoso Downs on July 31.

My Kinda Pretty, 7-10 favorite Sandia Sonata, Tessa's Cat, Golden Rocket, Amy's Lyin, CC Manor, La Bendiga, Pregame, Demi Demure, and Winsome Nette completed the order of finish.

Runner-up Mickey's Last Dance is a bay daughter of 1998 Oaklawn Handicap (G1) winner Precocity racing for Richard Lueck. The filly has earned $14,571 from four outs.

My Kinda Pretty is a homebred filly by Abajo campaigned by Pierre and Leslie Amestoy of Albuquerque. The filly has made four career starts and has banked $10,572.
