RSS Feeds Sunday, October 28, 2012
Trainer Joel Marr won three races during Sunday's $1.9-million New Mexico Cup program for state-bred Thoroughbreds and Quarter Horses at Zia Park.

Marr won the 6-furlong, $170,720 New Mexico Cup Sprint Championship (R) with Attitude E Racer, and the 1-mile, $170,360 Peppers Pride New Mexico Cup Fillies & Mares Championship (R) with Iplaytricks, both for owner Michael C. Stinson of Fort Worth, Texas. The trainer's third winner came in the 1-mile, $180,480 Rocky Gulch New Mexico Cup Championship (R) with On Down The Road, a 4-year-old Desert God gelding racing for Lisa M. Rehburg of Mountain Center, California.

Todd Fincher won two races, as the trainer sent out R.D. Hubbard's Thermal to win the 6-furlong, $140,720 New Mexico Cup Juvenile Colts & Geldings Stakes (R), and Barbara M. Coleman's Hennessy Smash to win the 6-furlong, $140,600 New Mexico Cup Fillies Stakes (R).

Ken Tohill rode two of Marr's winners, Attitude E Racer and Iplaytricks. One other jockey, Duane Sterling, also won two races, including the 6-furlong, $140,600 New Mexico Cup Colts & Geldings Stakes (R) with Midnightlowdown, an 80-1 longshot owned by William Rezzonico and Jeremy Trujillo and trained by Gerald Marr.

Midnightlowdown returned a $163.60 win mutuel, the largest win price in the eight-year history of the New Mexico Cup.
