Woodys Allstar Wins Shue Fly Stakes
RSS Feeds Saturday, January 04, 2014
Woodys Allstar, the fastest qualifier and odds-on favorite, scored her first stakes victory in Saturday’s $290,656 Shue Fly Stakes (RG2) for newly turned New Mexico-bred 3-year-olds at Sunland Park.

A brown daughter of Woodbridge racing for Joe Dee Brooks, Ted Rushing, and Lee Lewis, Woodys Allstar covered 400 yards in :19.067 while defeating fourth-fastest qualifier Kia Won by a neck and earning a 95 speed index. The filly’s time was the fourth-fastest clocking in the 42-year history of the stakes, and it missed by just 88/1000ths of a second the stakes record of :18.979 set by Quatro Menudos five years ago.

Salvador Martinez rode Woodys Allstar for trainer Mike Joiner.

Woodys Allstar was coming off of a 1 3/4-length win in the fifth of seven Shue Fly trials on December 13, a race which marked her first start in eight months. The filly’s sire, Woodbridge, is an unraced 15-year-old son of the First Down Dash stallion Dash Ta Fame. Woodbridge is a full brother to Grade 1 winner and one-time 440-yard world record holder Kendall Jackson, and a half to 2009 AQHA champion 3-year-old filly Alice K White.

Woodbridge’s top starters include graded stakes winner Woody Dungarees, and the graded stakes placed WDC Wendys Wine and Threedeewoodee.. The stallion is standing the 2014 breeding season for a $2,000 fee at Mac and Janis Spencer Murray’s MJ Farms in Veguita, New Mexico.

Woodys Allstar’s dam, Starsmith, is a winning 9-year-old filly by champion Tres Seis. The filly’s second dam, the Oklahoma-bred R. Smith (TB) mare Miss Star Smith, ran third in the 1985 Blue Ribbon Futurity (G1).

All told, Woodys Allstar has won three of four starts, and the $136,608 winner’s share of the Shue Fly Stakes purse pushed her bankroll to $172,266. Her race record includes a third-place finish in the April 7, $231,438 New Mexican Spring Futurity (RG2) at Sunland Park.

Sent to post as the 9-10 favorite in the full field of 10, Woodys Allstar returned a $3.80 win mutuel. Kia Won, the 7-2 second choice, completed a $2 exacta dividend of $16.40.

Moonifisant finished third, 1 1/4 lengths behind the winner, and was followed by One Lethal Blaze, Osaka Moon, Sassy Moonflash, Penny Snatchin, Hot Hot Baby Doll, Mister Brooks, and Brooks Crown Jewels.

Kia Won is a gray gelded son of champion Ketel Won racing for Nahum Prieto and Joe Rios. The gelding has won three of eight outs and has earned $115,454, and his stakes resume includes a nose victory in the April 6, $50,000 New Mexican Spring Fling Stakes (R) at Sunland.

A brown colt by Sixes Royal campaigned by Peter B. Gallegos, Robert Sanchez, and Patricia Gonzalez, Moonifisant has banked $189,186 from eight races. Moonifisant won his first three races at Sunland Park last spring, including the New Mexican Spring Futurity, and his 2013 season record included a third-place run in the 400-yard, $288,830 New Mexico Cup Futurity (RG2) at Zia Park.
