Roll Out The Band Scores in Totah Stakes
RSS Feeds Tuesday, June 18, 2013
Roll Out The Band led at every call en route to a convincing 5 1/4-length victory in Tuesday's $65,000 Totah Stakes (R) for New Mexico-bred 2-year-old colts and geldings at SunRay Park.

Prepped by Todd Fincher and ridden by Alfredo Juarez Jr. for owners Brad King and Dale Taylor, Roll Out The Band made his 4 1/2-furlong trip in :51.83. The homebred chestnut gelding recorded his second win in four starts, and the $39,000 winner's share of the purse pushed his earnings to $51,683.

Roll Out The Band became the eighth stakes winner sired by Roll Hennessy Roll, a 13-year-old son of the Storm Cat stallion Hennessy. Campaigned in five states from 2002-04, including New Mexico, Roll Hennessy Roll banked $173,869 from 12 races, and he won three stakes as a 2-year-old, including the 7-furlong, $125,000 Hollywood Prevue Stakes (G3) at Hollywood Park, and the 6-furlong, $64,885 Ruidoso Thoroughbred Futurity at Ruidoso Downs.

Roll Hennessy Roll's 78 starters have earned more than $2.9 million and include multiple stakes winners Kiss My Hennessy, Roll Bloomers Roll, Back Seat Roll, and Hennesey Smash. A half brother to Grade 3 winner Sing Baby Sing and stakes winners Value Plus and Majorbigtimesheet, the stallion is owned by Fred Alexander and Brad King, and he stands for a $3,500 fee at Fred and Linda Alexander's A & A Ranch in Anthony, New Mexico.

Roll Out The Band is also the first winner from two starters produced by Partyband, a winning New Mexico-bred 9-year-old daughter of the Dixieland Band stallion Chimes Band. Partyband is a half sister to Lauren Lynn, a Hadif filly who ran second in the 2003 Valor Farm Stakes (R) at Lone Star Park and Yellow Rose Stakes (R) at Sam Houston Race Park.

Roll Out The Band's second dam, Soiree, is a 19-year-old mare by Full Choke who won two stakes at Ruidoso Downs during her 2-year-old season. The gelding's third dam, the Barachois mare Flying B.G., produced a total of four stakes winners, all of which are full brothers to Soiree, including B.G.'s Drone, a Full Choke colt who won three stakes in New Mexico from 1991-93 and ran second in Honor The Hero's '93 Phoenix Gold Cup (G3) at Turf Paradise.

Roll Out The Band was coming off of a 3 1/2-length victory as the 11-10 favorite in a 4 1/2-furlong maiden special weight sprint for state-bred 2-year-olds on May 4. The gelding also ran fourth in the colts and geldings division of the April 13, $95,126 Copper Top Futurity (R) at Sunland Park.

Sent to post as the 5-2 second choice in the field of six, Roll Out The Band returned a $7.80 win mutuel. Dandy Don Who, the 9-10 favorite, finished second to complete a $2 exacta payoff of $12.60.

Fonzerelli ran third, six lengths behind Roll Out The Band, and was followed by Whatakiss, De Comon Man, and Chili Con Queso.

Dandy Don Who is a homebred chestnut son of Quinton's Gold racing for Sam E. Stevens and Sammy L. Stevens of Lamesa, Texas. The gelding has won two of three starts and has earned $66,963, and his race record includes a three-quarter length victory in the colts and geldings division of the Copper Top Futurity on April 13.

A homebred Attila's Storm gelding owned by Todd White, Fonzerelli has banked $18,765 from three outs. Fonzerelli was coming off of a third-place run in the colts and geldings division of the Copper Top Futurity.
