Tyger Teras is Prompt Favorite in Aztec Oaks
RSS Feeds Saturday, May 25, 2013
Alfredo Juarez Jr. rode favorite Tyger Teras to four-length victory in Saturday's $65,000 Aztec Oaks (R) for New Mexico-bred 3-year-old fillies at SunRay Park.

Prepped by Greg Green for owner Jim Nation, Tyger Teras covered her 6 1/2-furlong trip in 1:18.38 after closing on the early fractions of :23.18 and :46.99 established by Chapaquiddick Hush and La Luz. The filly was coming off of a one-length victory as the 6-5 choice in an open 5 1/2-furlong, $30,720 allowance-optional claiming ($25,000) sprint at Sunland Park on April 12.

Tyger Teras was bred by R. Doug Mills and Gertie Mills of Pampa, Texas. The filly is the lone stakes winner to date sired by To Teras, an unraced 13-year-old son of multiple Grade 1 winner Unbridled's Song.

A full brother to stakes winner Silver Lord and a half to Grade 3 winner Miss Singhsix (IRE), To Teras has sired 35 starters and the earners of more than $1.2 million. In 2010, To Teras was donated by Sunland Park Racetrack and Casino owner Stan Fulton to New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, where the stallion currently stands.

Tyger Teras is also one of two winners from four starters produced by Bonita Tyger, a winning 13-year-old daughter of the Danzig stallion Haymarket (GB).

All told, Tyger Teras has won five of her 10 outs, and the $39,000 winner's share of the Aztec Oaks purse increased her bankroll to $149,348. A one-time $12,500 claimer, the filly won three of her four races during the 2012-13 Sunland Park meet, and her season record included a 1 1/4-length victory from multiple stakes winner Back Seat Roll in the 6-furlong, $85,000 La Senora Stakes (R) on January 12.

Tyger Teras' lone setback at Sunland was a second-place finish to Back Seat Roll in the March 24, 1 1/16-mile New Mexico Breeders' Oaks (R).

Tyger Teras returned a $4.80 win mutuel as the 7-5 favorite in the field of nine. Lakehouse Fun, the 3-1 second choice in the wagering, ran second to complete a $2 exacta payoff of $17.60.

Swedish Goddess finished third, five lengths behind the winner, and was followed by Dance With Trixie, La Luz, Silver Streakn Gal, Applelina, Grand Flame, and Chapaquiddick Hush.

Lakehouse Fun has earned $79,201 from 10 starters for her owners, J. Kirk and Judy Robison of El Paso, Texas, who also bred the dark bay or brown daughter of the Hennessy stallion Roll Hennessy Roll. The filly has won three races, and her stakes resume includes a second-place finish to K B's Princess in last year's $75,000 C.O. “Ken” Kendrick Memorial Stakes at SunRay Park.

A $28,000 buy at the 2011 New Mexico-Bred Yearling Sale at Ruidoso Downs, Swedish Goddess has won one of four starts and has banked $18,920. The chestnut filly by Desert God was four weeks removed from a 3 1/2-length victory against state-bred maiden company on April 28.
