RSS Feeds Sunday, June 15, 2014
A field of eight New Mexico-bred 2-year-olds, including three first-time starters, has been entered in Tuesday’s 4 1/2-furlong, $45,000 Totah Stakes (R) at SunRay Park.

Uncle Fudge, the 5-2 morning-line favorite, has drawn the rail post for this, his third career start. A homebred son of the Afternoon Deelites stallion Premeditation and a full brother to stakes winners Double Smart, Beau Wizer, and Mr. Wizard, Uncle Fudge has earned $16,260 from two races for his owners W.D. Carson Sr., M.H. Carson, and Leach Racing.

Uncle Fudge’s race record includes a second-place finish to Raider Red in the colts and geldings division of the 4 1/2-furlong Copper Top Futurity (R) at Sunland Park in April.
Jose Luis Vargas trains the gelding, who will be ridden by Carlos Madeira in the Totah.

Maries H and H is a homebred gelded son of the A.P. Indy stallion High Octane racing for W.T. Stradley and Tom A. Williams of Hobbs, New Mexico, and trained by Fred Danley. Maries H and H ran third, 3 1/2 lengths behind Raider Red, in the Copper Top Futurity.

Alfredo Juarez Jr. will taken the call on Maries H and H on Tuesday.

Helen Nave’s Born A Ruler ships in from Ruidoso Downs, where the homebred son of the Gone West stallion Nacimineto ran second in a 4 1/2-furlong, $9,000 maiden sprint for state-breds in his debut on May 25. Trained by Todd Fincher, the gelding is a half brother to two stakes-placed runners, including Worry This, the third-place finisher in last year’s $50,000 Road Runner Handicap (R) and $40,000 Norgor Derby at Ruidoso.

Born A Ruler drew post 6 and will be ridden by Aldo Arboleda.

The complete lineup for the Totah Stakes, in post position order including jockey assignments and morning-line odds -- Uncle Fudge (Carlos Madeira), 5-2; Lunar Storm (Roman Chapa), 12-1; Maries H And H (Alfredo Juarez Jr.), 3-1; You’ve Been Duped (Ruby Gonzalez), 7-2; Record Heat (Enrique P.
