RSS Feeds Friday, February 14, 2014
Graded stakes winner Woodys Allstar is one of 10 state-bred 3-year-olds entered in Sunday’s 400-yard, $85,000 New Mexico Horse Breeders’ Association Stakes (RG2) at Sunland Park.

A brown daughter of the Dash Ta Fame stallion Woodbridge, Woodys Allstar has earned $172,266 from four starts for her owners, Joe Dee Brooks, Ted Rushing and Lee Lewis. The filly’s three wins include a neck victory as the fastest qualifier and odds-on favorite in the January 4, $290,656 Shue Fly Stakes (RG2) at Sunland.

Woodys Allstar is trained by Mike Joiner, and she will be ridden by regular pilot Salvador Martinez from post 3 in the NMHBA Stakes.

Kia Won, the runner-up to Woodys Allstar in the Shue Fly, drew post 2 for owners Nahum Prieto and Joe Rios. Trained by Gene Burden, the gray gelded son of AQHA champion Ketel Won has won three of eight outs and has banked $115,454, and he was a finalist in last year’s 400-yard, $289,000 New Mexico Cup Futurity (RG2) at Zia Park and 400-yard, $409,000 Zia Futurity (RG1) at Ruidoso Downs.

Other NMHBA Stakes contenders include Gonna Make You Royal, a sorrel colt by the unraced Mr Jess Perry stallion Gonamakeyoureyesblue and winner of last year’s 400-yard, $20,000 By By JJ Stakes (R) for owner Bowers and Seago Racing, and J & M Racing and Farm’s Kaydns Krusader, a Sixes Royal gelding and the runner-up to AQHA champion 2-year-old Handsome Jack Flash in last year’s Zia Futurity.

The complete lineup for the NMHBA Stakes, in post position order including jockey assignments and morning-line odds -- Gonna Make You Royal (Oscar Ortega), 6-1; Kia Won (Sergio Becerra Jr.), 7-2; Woodys Allstar (Salvador Martinez), 5-2; Queen But A King (Tanner Thedford), 20-1; Royal Guardians (Adrian Ramos), 12-1; Mister Blazin First (Cody Jensen), 10-1; Rasberry Cola (Felipe Garcia-Luna), 10-1; Kaydns Krusader (Esgar Ramirez), 5-1; Too Flash For You (Larry Gamez), 8-1; and Booyah Bay (Jaime Leos), 10-1.
