RSS Feeds Friday, December 16, 2016
Sunland Park’s rich Thoroughbred stakes schedule kicks off with a New Mexico-bred doubleheader on Sunday.

A field of eight state-bred distaffers, headed by morning-line favorite Diabolical Dame, has been entered in Sunday’s 6-furlong, $85,000 New Mexico State Racing Commission Handicap (R). A 4-year-old daughter of Diabolical trained by Todd Fincher for owners Joe Dee Brooks, Scott Bryant, and Derrol Hubbard, Diabolical Dame is coming off of a Zia Park fall meet during which she scored a clear 6 1/4-length victory in the 6-furlong, $140,000 New Mexico Cup Distaff Sprint Championship (R) on October 30.

Diabolical Dame won two of five outs and has earned $106,620 this season. The filly drew post 4 and will be ridden by Tracy Hebert.

Fincher will also send out Bryn’s Fancy Pants, a homebred 3-year-old Southwestern Heat filly who will be making her first start against older fillies and mares, for owners Dale Taylor, Carey Taylor, and Jon Hogg. Bryn’s Fancy Pants began her career with a five-race win streak that included victories in the 6-furlong, $85,000 La Senora Stakes (R) at Sunland Park, the 5 1/2-furlong, $50,000 Petticoat Stakes at Albuquerque Downs, and the 5 1/2-furlong, $50,000 Sierra Starlet Handicap (R) at Ruidoso Downs.

Bryn’s Fancy Pants has banked $154,900 from six starts. The filly drew post 3 and will be ridden by Alfredo Juarez Jr.

The complete lineup, in post position order including jockey and weight assignments and morning-line odds:
Tylers Dixie Chick (Duane Sterling, 116), 10-1

Bryn’s Fancy Pants (Alfredo Juarez Jr., 118), 4-1

Sunday’s 6 1/2-furlong, $85,000 Johnie L. Jamison Handicap (R) has drawn a full field of a dozen New Mexico-bred sprinters.

D E Lover, a 5-year-old son of the Pioneering stallion So Long Birdie, races for Leroy Martinez and trainer Tony Sedillo. The 3-1 morning-line choice, D E Lover will be stretching out in distance off of his three-length victory in the 6-furlong, $170,000 New Mexico Cup Sprint Championship (R) at Zia Park on October 30.

D E Lover has won three stakes and has earned $230,052 from 11 races this season. The gelding drew post 6 and will be ridden by Frank Reyes.

Other contenders include Michael G. Weatherly’s Not My Note, a homebred 4-year-old Fusaichi Zenon (JPN) gelding trained by Simon Buechler. Not My Note has banked $124,439 from eight outs this year, and his four wins include a 1 1/2-length score in the 5 1/2-furlong, $60,000 Casey Darnell Pony Express Stakes (R) at Albuquerque Downs on September 17.

Not My Note drew post 12 and will be ridden by Tracy Hebert.
