Sippin Wins Permian Basin Stakes
RSS Feeds Monday, October 10, 2016
Sippin, a registered New Mexico-bred filly racing for R.D. Hubbard, kept her perfect record intact with a convincing 4 1/2-length victory in Monday’s $50,000 Permian Basin Stakes for 2-year-old fillies at Zia Park.

Ridden by Tracy Hebert for trainer Todd Fincher, Sippin covered 6 furlongs in 1:10.34 while making her first-ever start against open company. The $30,000 winner’s share of the purse from her second stakes win pushed the homebred filly’s bankroll to $133,047.

Sippin is the first stakes winner from 14 Thoroughbred starters sired by Swissle Stick. A multiple stakes placed 14-year-old son of the Eastern Echo stallion Swiss Yodeler and the unraced Siyah Kalem mare Miss Soft Sell, Swissle Stick has sired the Thoroughbred earners of more than $240,000.

Swissle Stick was bred in California and is a half brother to three stakes winners, including 2006 Santa Anita Derby (G1) winner Brother Derek. The stallion is owned by and stands for a $1,000 fee at Mac and Janis Murray’s MJ Farms at Veguita, New Mexico.

Sippin is also one of four winners from six starters produced by Samba Queen, a 13-year-old Kentucky-bred daughter of the Storm Cat stallion Giant’s Causeway.The filly is a half sister to Mancation, the winner of the 1 1/16-mile New Mexico Breeders’ Derby (R) at Sunland Park in 2014.

Sippin’s second dam, the Baronius (BRZ) mare Misty Moon (BRZ), foaled three stakes winners, all of whom are half sisters to Samba Queen, including Virginie, a multiple graded stakes winner who won the ’99 Beverly Hills Handicap (G1) on the turf at Hollywood Park.

Sippin traces back to her fourth dam, the winning Cohoes mare Fashion Plate. A 1965 foal, Fashion Plate was a half sister to multiple stakes winner Swiss Cheese.

Sent to post as the even-money favorite, Sippin returned a $4 win mutuel. Campaigned exclusively in New Mexico, the filly has won four races, including the 5 1/2-furlong, $191,093 Rio Grande Senorita Futurity (R) at Ruidoso Downs on September 4.

Christina’s Comet finished second and was followed by McKenzie Honey, Vocally, Imsortaspecial, Rate The Republic, and Shoe Game.

Christina’s Comet was making her first-ever start in New Mexico. Racing for Ackerly Brothers Farm, the Kentucky-bred Successful Appeal has banked $36,500 from four races, and her resume includes a third-place finish in the July 28, $65,000 Prairie Gold Lassie Stakes at Prairie Meadows.

McKenzie Honey is campaigned by Barbara Eakin, Jonathan Nance, and Steve A. Smith. A $3,500 yearling buy at the 2015 Fasig Tipton Kentucky February Sale, the daughter of Parading has earned $48,136 from five races, and her two wins include a 1 1/2-length victory in the 5-furlong, $53,558 ATBA Spring Sales Stakes (R) at Turf Paradise on May 8.
