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.
