Six Fillies Entered in Enchantress Stakes
RSS Feeds Monday, April 11, 2016
Six New Mexico-bred 3-year-old fillies, including multiple stakes winner Indian Tiva, have been entered in Wednesday’s 1-mile, $85,000 Enchantress Stakes (R) at Sunland Park.

Originally scheduled to be run on March 1 but canceled due to a starting-gate malfunction, the Enchantress is the featured sixth race on Sunland Park’s 10-race program. Estimated post time for the Enchantress is set for 3:39 p.m. (MDT).

Indian Tiva is a homebred daughter of the Indian Charlie stallion Shame On Charlie owned and trained by Barbara Brown of Hobbs, New Mexico. The filly has earned $173,638 from eight races, and her three wins include last year’s 6-furlong, $55,000 Permian Basin Stakes and 6-furlong, $140,000-added New Mexico Cup Lassie Stakes (R), both at Zia Park.

Indian Tiva drew post 2 and will be ridden by Glen Murphy.

Other contenders include Tipsy Tea, a homebred filly by Seeking The Cat trained by Weston Martin for owners Harry Teague and Larry Teague of Hobbs. Tipsy Tea rallied to score a 1 1/4-length victory in the 1 1/16-mile, $100,000 New Mexico Breeders’ Oaks (R) at Sunland on March 20.

Roimes Chirinos will ride Tipsy Tea, the 2-1 morning-line favorite, from post 5.

Trainer Joel Marr will send out Kimbell, the runner-up to Tipsy Tea in the Breeders’ Oaks, in the Enchantress. A dark bay or brown daughter of the Storm Cat stallion Western Gambler racing for Michael Stinson, Kimbell drew the rail post and will be ridden by Ken Tohill.

Jockey Elvin Gonzalez, who rode Indian Tiva in that filly’s two stakes wins, will be aboard the undefeated Lightly Toasted in the Enchantress. A homebred Fusaichi Zenon (JPN) filly trained by Gary Cross for owner Samuel Henderson, Lightly Toasted has won both of her starts and will make her two-turn debut on Tuesday.

The complete lineup for the Enchantress, in post position order including jockey assignments and morning-line odds -- Kimbell (Ken Tohill), 3-1; Indian Tiva (Glen Murphy), 7-2; Lightly Toasted (Elvin Gonzalez), 4-1; Love Bug Who (Francisco Duran), 6-1; Tipsy Tea (Roimes Chirinos), 2-1; and Dust Alert (Christian Santiago Reyes), 5-1.
