Vocally Speaks Loudly in Kendrick Memorial
RSS Feeds Saturday, May 21, 2016
Vocally, a homebred daughter of freshman sire Indian Firewater racing for Brad King and Dale Taylor, made her debut with a wire-to-wire victory in the May 16 C.O. “Ken” Kendrick Memorial Stakes (R) for New Mexico-bred 2-year-old fillies at SunRay Park.

Ridden by Norberto Arroyo Jr. for trainer Todd Fincher and sent to post as the 5-2 second choice, Vocally covered her 4 1/2-furlong trip in :52.45, and her margin of victory was a nose from 7-5 favorite Roll On Marquee. The filly earned the $26,880 winner’s share of the $44,800 purse.

Vocally is the first starter sired by Indian Firewater, a 9-year-old Kentucky-bred son of the In Excess (IRE) stallion Indian Charlie. Racing primarily in California from 2009-12, Indian Firewater earned $339,242 from 25 outs, and his two stakes victories included a wire-to-wire win in the 1 1/16-mile, $150,000 San Fernando Stakes (G2) at Santa Anita Park in 2011.

Indian Firewater is owned by a partnership, and he stands for a $3,000 fee at Steve and Susie Prather’s Doubletree Farm in Hobbs, New Mexico.

Vocally is the first starter produced by Songtress, a winning 10-year-old mare by the Unbridled’s Song stallion Songandaprayer. A Kentucky-bred, Songtress is a half sister to Zada Belle, a multiple stakes winning Indian Charlie filly who ran second in the ’08 Honorable Miss Handicap (G2) Saratoga, and the stakes-placed fillies Lucy Valentine and Cofachiqui.

Vocally’s third dam, the Brent’s Prince mare Wendover Way, foaled nine winners, including Curley’s Axe and Genki, two multiple stakes placed geldings who were half brother to Vocally’s second dam, the winning Carson City mare Three Of A Kind. The filly traces back to her fourth dam, Brook Miss, a winning daughter of Roman Line and a half sister to two stakes winners, including multiple stakes winner Our Emblem.

Vocally returned a $7 win mutuel and paired with Roll On Marquee for a $2 exacta dividend of $18.20. A Kiss For Mom finished third, 6 1/2 lengths behind Vocally, to complete a $31.90 ($1) trifecta.

Rock N Roll Me, Flying Past Who, Dashing N Daring, Westa, and Swiss Eydie completed the order of finish.

Roll On Marquee was just 17 days removed from her wire-to-wire, nose victory in a 4 1/2-furlong, $21,795 maiden-special-weight race for New Mexico-bred 2-year-olds at Sunland Park. The homebred dark bay or brown daughter of Roll Hennessy Roll races for W. Davis and Lisa Moore.

A daughter of Roll Hennessy Roll, A Kiss For Mom is campaigned by Scott Bryant and Joe Dee Brooks. The filly has banked $4,916 from two starts.
