Wheredoesthecashgo, Mr. Mooch Win Holiday State-Bred Stakes at Ruidoso
RSS Feeds Monday, September 4, 2017

Wheredoesthecashgo, a homebred son of Southwestern Heat, broke his maiden with a 2 1/4-length victory in Monday's $135,395 Rio Grande Senor Futurity (R) for New Mexico-bred colts and geldings at Ruidoso Downs.

Ridden by Miguel Fuentes Jr., Wheredoesthecashgo went 5 1/2 furlongs in 1:04.99 and scored his first win in four starts. Joel Marr trained the chestnut gelding for owners J. Kirk and Judy Robison of El Paso, Texas.

Wheredoesthecashgo is one of five winners from five starters foaled by Wildcat Diva. a 14-year-old daughter of Forest Wildcat and half sister to Capdiva, the winner of the $259,130 Canadian Oaks (R) at Woodbine in 1997. The gelding is a half brother to three-time stakes winner Liberty Love and stakes winner Diabolical King.

The $67,697 winner's share of the Senor Futurity purse increased Wheredoesthecashgo's earnings to $71,565.

On The Low Down, Hermano, Stormonthemountain, Hollywood Henry, P J's Gold, Roll On Becton, Blaze Runner and Big Boy Baze completed the order of finish. Belly Button Who was scratched.

Also on Monday, J.C. Villanueva rode Mr. Mooch to the gelding's first stakes win against older horses in the 6-furlong, $50,000 Ruidoso Downs Thoroughbred Championship Stakes (R).

Saddled by Johnathan Lemons for owners Rodney Brooks, Marty Brooks, Glenn Berry, and Donnie Reid, Mr. Mooch defeated Hute by one length in 1:11.17. The gelded son of Tin Can Sailor was stretching out in distance off of his wire-to-wire, 1 1/2-length victory in the July 30, 5 1/2-furlong Road Runner Handicap (R) for 3-year-olds.

Mr. Mooch was bred by Dee Mooring of Bosque, New Mexico, and he has won five of seven outs and has earned $88,368.

Forger finished third, 1 3/4 lengths behind Mr. Mooch, and was followed by 8-5 favorite Stormin The Jewels, Hit A Lick, Golly Gee, D E Lover, Way Nifty, and Ten Penny Cents.
