Tyger Teras Scores Upset Victory in La Senora Stakes
RSS Feeds Saturday, January 12, 2013
Making her first start against stakes company, Jim Nation's Tyger Teras rallied to win Saturday's $85,000 La Senora Stakes (R) for New Mexico-bred 3-year-old fillies at Sunland Park.

Tyger Teras covered her 6-furlong trip in :1:11.72, after the gray or roan filly by To Teras closed on the fractions of :22.48 and :46.01 set by Chickee Chickee and K B's Princess. Derek Bell rode Tyger Teras for trainer Chris Hartman.

Tyger Teras was bred by R. Doug Mills and Gertie Mills. The filly became the first stakes winner from 30 starters sired by To Teras, an unraced 13-year-old son of 1995 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Stakes (G1) winner Unbridled's Song.

A full brother to stakes winner and 2008 Mineshaft Handicap (G3) runner-up Silver Lord, To Teras has sired the earners of more than $1.08 million. The stallion entered stud in 2004. He is owned by New Mexico State University, and he stands for a $2,500 fee at the university farm in Las Cruces.

Tyger Teras' dam, Bonita Tyger, is a winning 13-year-old daughter of the Danzig stallion Haymarket (GB).

Tyger Teras was coming off of a 7 1/4-length victory in a 6-furlong, non-winners-of-two $12,500 claimer for New Mexico-breds at Sunland Park on December 14. All told, the filly has won three of seven starts, and the $51,000 winner's share of the La Senora Stakes purse pushed her earnings to $74,337.

Tyger Teras was sent to post at odds of nearly 9-1 and returned a $19.60 win mutuel. Back Seat Roll, the 7-5 favorite in the field of 11, finished second, 1 ¼ lengths behind the winner, to complete a $70.60 ($2) exacta.

Lakehouse Fun, K B's Princess, Desertsmagic, Park Lane Lass, Dandy Devona R F, Way To Go Gerda, Marthas Princess, Chickee Chickee, and Storm Dancing completed the order of finish.

A bay daughter of the Hennessy stallion Roll Hennessy Roll, Back Seat Roll brought a four-race win streak into the La Senora that included three stakes, including the 1-mile, $85,000 Enchantress Stakes (R) at Sunland Park on December 16, and the 6-furlong, $140,000 New Mexico Cup Juvenile Fillies Stakes (R) at Zia Park on October 28. A homebred, Back Seat Roll has earned $225,114 from seven races for her owners, J. Kirk and Judy Robison of El Paso, Texas.

Lakehouse Fun was making her first start since November 24, when the filly scored a 3 1/2-length win in a 5 1/2-furlong, $34,400 entry level allowance for state-bred 2-year-old fillies at Zia Park. Lakehouse Fun has won three of seven outs and has banked $58,490 for the Robisons, who also bred the dark bay or brown filly by Roll Hennessy Roll.
