So is that back-to-back wins for her or just the first, Madelyn? Either way, congrats!

Thanks! She has been knocking on the door for a long time and been, as one pal calls it, "a very peculiar horse". With top jock Perry Ouzts on her five previous starts no cigar it took a BUG making her 20th or so start to listen and not ever Hit her. She went wire to wire on a hand ride.

We picked up a really nice claimer yesterday at Sunland Park that we hope will be an asset with some careful management.

His name is Super Senor, and he's a 5YO gelded son of Kentucky Derby winner Super Saver (who also sired Runhappy). His dam is a multi-stakes winner/stakes placed daughter of El Gran Senor (Northern Dancer x Buckpasser daughter), out of a multiple stakes winner and graded stakes placed dam who set a NTR at Canterbury for 8+ furlongs.

He's been lightly raced, but has managed to hit the board in 8 of 14 starts, with three wins, including his debut at Sunland Park. This year he's made three starts with a win, a 2nd (yesterday) and a 5th place. Our trainer also trained his full brother, Super Accord, and he did quite well, hitting the board in 13 of 25 starts with 9 wins.

We've been scouting for just the right horse for a while, passed on several and lost the shake on one, but I think this guy was a good claim and has some potential to improve his record. Time will tell. I'll keep you posted.

Ageecee, I hear you, but Sunland and Zia Park actually have the better purses in our circuit. One factor is it doesn't cost nearly as much to run a horse out here as it does back east or on the west coast. We did okay with Endless Thyme. She more than paid her bills and rarely started for a purse that was more than $10k. Of course, she also never finished off the board for us in the year we co-owned her. She came to us with a win at Churchill Downs and two back-to-back wins at Belterra, but other that those, not a stellar record.

Super Senor ran his first race for us at Sunland Park yesterday and came in a solid 2nd with a pretty strong move on the turn. Although he was a good 2-1/4 lengths behind the winner, he was also 1-1/4 lengths ahead of the 3rd place finisher and giving indications he still had some gas in the tank if the race were a bit longer. Overall we're very pleased with his performance.

Here's the video on YouTube: https://youtu.be/jYRXyayWMl4

We were able to meet our boy in person on Sunland Derby Day (along with Chasing Yesterday and Bob Baffert and family--quite an honor) and he is very much a gentleman and much better looking than his photos.

Glad he's a gentleman, but you've only seen your boy in photos? :D Just kidding I think you meant Baffert.

Congrats on a nice first out!!

Yup, Madelyn, we'd only seen him in photos/videos prior to Sunland Derby day. Our trainer did the visual check on Super before we claimed him. Sunland is an 8-hour drive round trip, so we don't get down there often.
