Rose's Desert is Prompt Favorite in NM Racing Commission Handicap
RSS Feeds Sunday, December 09, 2012
Sent to post as the 3-10 choice, Rose's Desert rallied to win Sunday's 6-furlong, $85,000 New Mexico State Racing Commission Handicap (R) for state-bred distaffers at Sunland Park.

Rose's Desert covered her three-quarter mile trip in 1:11.02 under jockey Casey Lambert, and her margin of victory was five lengths from runner-up Gossip Dome. Todd Fincher saddled the homebred 4-year-old filly by Desert God for owner Joe Peacock.

Rose's Desert is one of 22 stakes winners from 150 starters sired by Desert God, an unraced son of the Mr. Prospector stallion Fappiano and a half brother to Grade 2 winners Better Than Honour and Smolensk, and Grade 3 winner Turnberry Isle. Now 21, Desert God has sired the earners of more than $10.5 million, including stakes winners Peppers Pride, Iplaytricks, Desert Hennessy, Attitude E Racer, and On Down The Road.

Desert God is owned by Dale Taylor, Joe Allen, and Ron Allen, and he will stand the 2013 season at Fred and Linda Alexander's A & A Ranch in Anthony, New Mexico.

Rose's Desert is also one of two winners from as many starters produced by Miss Glen Rose, an 11-year-old daughter of the Mt. Livermore stallion Peaks And Valleys. The filly's third dam, Pert, was an Ohio-bred mare by 1967 U.S. Horse of the Year Damascus who won the Grade 3 First Flight Handicap at Aqueduct in '83.

Rose's Desert was coming off of a second-place finish to Iplaytricks in the 1-mile, $170,360 Peppers Pride New Mexico Cup Fillies & Mares Championship (R) at Zia Park on October 28. All told, the filly has banked $420,825 from 10 races, and her seven victories include the 5 1/2-furlong, $100,000 La Coneja Handicap (R) at Sunland Park on March 25, and last year's New Mexico State Racing Commission Handicap at Sunland and Peppers Pride New Mexico Cup Fillies & Mares Championship (R).

Rose's Desert returned a $2.60 win mutuel and teamed with Gossip Dome, a 14-1 longshot, for a $2 exacta payoff of $16.60. Iplaytricks finished third, five lengths behind the winner, to complete a $38.80 ($1) trifecta.

Our Flying Angel, Driving Miss Dom, I Am Lesters Gal, Funnyoushouldask, and Dream Kin completed the order of finish.

A 4-year-old chestnut filly by the Storm Cat stallion Dome, Gossip Dome races for Pesikan and Kilgroe Stables. Gossip Dome has won six of 24 starts, and the $18,700 second-place share of the New Mexico State Racing Commission Handicap purse pushed her earnings to $133,109. The filly's stakes resume includes third-place runs in the August 26, $50,000 Carlos Salazar Handicap (R) at The Downs at Albuquerque, and the July 29, $50,000 Lincoln Handicap (R) at Ruidoso Downs.

Iplaytricks was making her first start since October 28, when the 4-year-old brown daughter of Desert God scored a one-length victory from Rose's Desert in the Peppers Pride New Mexico Cup Fillies & Mares Championship (R) for her owner, Michael C. Stinson of Fort Worth, Texas. The filly has won eight of 18 races – including four stakes – and has banked $359,540.
