Snow Regard Pulls Big Upset in NM Quarter Horse Filly & Mare Championship
RSS Feeds Saturday, November 26, 2011
Snow Regard, the biggest longshot in the field of eight, scored her second career stakes victory in Saturday's New Mexico Quarter Horse Filly and Mare Championship (RG2) for state-bred distaffers at Zia Park.

Sent to post at odds of 28-1, Snow Regard covered 400 yards in :19.34 under jockey Jaime Leos, and her winning margin was a head from BJ Bring It On. Juan M. Gonzalez saddled the homebred 3-year-old filly by Chicks Regard for owner KH Logax Inc. of Oro Valley, Arizona.

Snow Regard's sire, Chicks Regard, is a 12-year-old stakes-winning son of the late Chicks Beduino. Chicks Regard's top runners include 2007 Zia Futurity (RG1) winner A Streak Regard and Ms Regard, the winner of the '08 New Mexico Quarter Horse Filly and Mare Champinonship (RG3). The stallion is owned by K. Humberto Lopez Gaxiola, and he stands for a $2,500 fee at Lazy E Ranch at Guthrie, Oklahoma.

Snow Regard is the first starter produced by Sha Hooy Hooy, a winning 9-year-old daughter of Major Rime. The filly's second dam, Tru Force, is a winning and stakes-placed mare by the Truckle Feature stallion Megaforce.

All told, Snow Regard has won four of 12 races, and the winner's share of the $149,000 New Mexico Filly and Mare Championship purse pushed her earnings to $174,548, of which $138,500 has been banked this season.

Snow Regard's stakes resume includes a one-length victory in the 350-yard, $75,000 Sunburst Stakes (R) for state-bred sophomore fillies at Sunland Park on April 16. At 2, Snow Regard won trial heats for the New Mexico State Fair Senorita Futurity (RG3) at The Downs at Albuquerque, and the New Mexico Cup Futurity (RG2) at Zia Park.

BJ Bring It On, a 13-1 longshot, completed a $2 exacta payoff of $1,196.40. Odds-on favorite Jenuine Joy and Famous Caillie finished in a dead heat for fourth and were followed by Little Bit Southern, By By Corona, BG Jungle Fever, and Sixy Chamisa.

BJ Bring It On was coming off of a neck victory in a 350-yard, $33,600 non-winners-of-three New Mexico-bred allowance race at Zia Park on October 9. The sorrel 5-year-old Genuine Strawfly mare, who races for Pedro Hernandez, has won three of 17 outs and has earned $95,056.

A homebred 5-year-old daughter of Genuine Strawfly, Jenuine Joy has banked $386,150 from 14 starts for her owner, Fredda Draper of Ruidoso Downs. Jenuine Joy has won eight races, including the July 31, $50,000 Zia Quarter Horse Championship (RG2) at Ruidoso Downs, and the July 3, $85,000 Tommy “Duke” Smith Handicap (RG2) at SunRay Park.

Famous Caillie was coming off of a nose win in a 300-yard, $34,570 state-bred allowance-optional claiming sprint at Zia Park on October 17. The 3-year-old Dash Ta Fame filly has won four of 11 starts and has earned $92,149 for her owner, Victory Farms.
