RSS Feeds Saturday, December 08, 2012
Joe Peacock's Rose's Desert, a homebred 4-year-old daughter of Desert God, heads the field in Sunday's 6-furlong, $85,000 New Mexico State Racing Commission Handicap (R) for state-bred fillies and mares, one of two New Mexico-bred stakes at Sunland Park on Sunday.

Trained by Todd Fincher, Rose's Desert scored a 3 1/4-length victory as the 13-10 favorite in last year's New Mexico State Racing Commission Handicap. The filly has earned $369,825 from just nine starts, and her six career wins include the 5 1/2-furlong, $110,000 La Coneja Stakes (R) at Sunland Park on March 25, and last year's 1-mile, $170,000 Peppers Pride New Mexico Cup Fillies & Mares Championship (R) at Zia Park.

Rose's Desert's eight opponents on Sunday include Hennesey Smash, a 3-year-old filly by Roll Hennessy Roll racing for Barbara M. Coleman of Farmington, New Mexico. Hennesey Smash has won four consecutive races, including the 6-furlong, $140,000 New Mexico Cup Fillies Stakes (R) at Zia Park on October 28, and the 6-furlong, $50,000 Chief Narbona Stakes (R) at The Downs at Albuquerque on August 26.

The New Mexico State Racing Commission Handicap will be the seventh race on Sunland Park's 11-race program. Post time for the race is scheduled for 3:15 p.m. (MST).

Mostly Dust is coming off of a second-place finish in the 6-furlong, $170,000 New Mexico Cup Sprint Championship (R) at Zia Park on October 28. The gelding has banked $179,340 from 16 outs, and his six wins include a half-length score against open company in last year's $40,000 Norgor Derby at Ruidoso Downs.
