Rollickin Red is Highweight in New Mexico Horsemen's Association Handicap
RSS Feeds Thursday, June 20, 2013
Rollickin Red, a multiple stakes-winning Roll Hennessy Roll (TB) gelding owned by a partnership and trained by Todd Fincher, is the 126-pound top weight in Sunday's 870-yard, $65,000 New Mexico Horsemen's Association Handicap (R) for state-bred Quarter Horses and Thoroughbreds at SunRay Park.

Rollickin Red is coming off of a two-length victory as the 2-5 favorite in an 870-yard allowance-optional claiming ($40,000) race for New Mexico-breds at Sunland Park on April 13. All told, the one-time $12,500 claimer has won eight of 11 races – including three stakes – and he has earned $251,242, of which $204,716 was banked last season.

Casey Lambert will ride Rollickin Red from post 6 on Sunday.

Rollickin Red's seven opponents include KC Royal Flush, a homebred 6-year-old Sixes Royal gelding campaigned by Kathryn Maynard and Carla Feerer of Los Lunas, New Mexico. KC Royal Flush is winless in four outs this year, but the gelding has banked $326,029 from 42 races, and his three career stakes wins includes a neck victory at odds of 7-1 in the $140,240 New Mexico Cup 870 Championship (R) at Zia Park.

The New Mexico Horsemen's Association Handicap will be run as the fourth race on SunRay Park's 10-race closing-day program. Approximate post time for the race is set for 2:07 p.m. (MDT).

The complete lineup in post position order, including jockey and weight assignments – My Big Chief (Fernando Rojas, 122), Cool Redalo (Alfonso Perez, 123), Kokopellis Babycakes (Enrique Gomez, 122), Lester's Echo (TB) (Macario Rodriguez, 123), KC Royal Flush (J. Martin Bourdieu, 124), Rollickin Red (Casey Lambert, 126), Corona Dream (Adam Martinez, 121), and Pakea Bay (Aldo Arboleda, 121).
