Rollickin Red is Morning-Line Favorite for Challenger Six Handicap
RSS Feeds Thursday, December 13, 2012
Rollickin Red, a multiple stakes winning 4-year-old son of Roll Hennessy Roll (TB), is the 8-5 morning-line choice for Saturday's 870-yard, $85,000 Challenger Six Handicap (R) for New Mexico-breds at Sunland Park.

Rollickin Red is coming off of a second-place finish to Challenger Six rival KC Royal Flush in the October 28, $140,000 New Mexico Cup 870 Championship (R) at Zia Park. Owned by a partnership and trained by Todd Fincher, the gelding has earned $153,716 from five starts this season, and his four wins include a 1 1/4-length score in the July 29, $50,000 Zia 870 Championship (R) at Ruidoso Downs, and a 2 1/2-length victory in the 870-yard, $75,000 New Mexico Horsemen's Association Handicap (R) at SunRay Park in June.

Rollickin Red has won five of his six outs at the 870-yard distance, and he is undefeated in four races at Sunland Park. Casey Lambert will ride the gelding from post 7 on Saturday.

KC Royal Flush drew post 3 for the Challenger Six and will be ridden for the first time by eight-time AQHA champion jockey G.R. Carter Jr. A homebred 5-year-old gelding by Sixes Royal racing for Kathryn Maynard and Carla Feerer of Los Lunas, New Mexico, and trained by Dominic Duree, KC Royal Flush will be making his first start since November 18, when he ran fourth against open company in the 870-yard, $55,000 King Rick Rack Stakes (G2) at Zia Park.

Tony Sedillo's D E Wagons Strawfly is coming off of a second-place finish to winner Im Royal Quick in the King Rick Rack Stakes. Dusty Shepherd will ride the 3-year-old Genuine Strawfly gelding from post 8.

The Challenger Six Handicap honors the memory of the horse by the same name, a New Mexico-bred gelding by Six Fortunes who won 20 races in the state from 1991-99. The stakes will be run as the fifth race on Sunland Park's 11-race program, with a scheduled post time of 2:01 p.m. (MST).

The complete lineup, in post position order including jockey and weight assignments and morning-line odds – Brookstone Flash (Salvador Martinez, 123), 5-1; Tecate N Lyme (Esgar Ramirez, 123), 6-1; KC Royal Flush (G.R. Carter Jr., 125), 4-1; Genes Kokopelli (Alejandro Medellin, 120), 12-1; Cool Redalo (Alfonso Perez, 123), 8-1; Littlesouthernswing (Luis Gutierrez Jr., 121), 15-1; Rollickin Red (Casey Lambert, 125), 8-5; and D E Wagons Strawfly (Dusty Shepherd, 122), 8-1.
