Conquest Mo Money remains unbeaten in two starts with an 11-length win under Jorge Carreno in the Riley Allison.

Conquest Mo Money improved his career record to 2 for 2 on Sunday, when he rolled to an 11-length win in the $100,000 Riley Allison at Sunland Park. Wine N Divine finished second in the local prep for the Grade 3, $800,000 Sunland Park Derby, while it was another 1 1/2 lengths back in third to favorite Underwood.

The Riley Allison shared a program with the $65,000 El Paso Times won by 16-1 shot Kell Paso. The latter race could produce starters for the $200,000 Sunland Park Oaks.

Conquest Mo Money ($29.80) launched his career earlier this month at Sunland, with a maiden special weight win at a mile. He was up by a neck, but employed new tactics in the Riley Allison. Conquest Mo Money dueled with Ranger Rod through a quarter-mile in 23 seconds, then took over through a half-mile in 46.34. Conquest Mo Money proceeded to lead through six furlongs in 1:10.92 before covering the mile on a fast track in 1:36.42.

Kell Paso ($35) also improved her record to 2 for 2 Sunday, when she proved 2 1/2 lengths best over favorite Christina’s Comet. Kell Paso overtook pacesetter Old Fashioned Girl after an opening quarter in 22.62 seconds and went on to cover the 6 1/2 furlongs on a track rated fast in 1:15.80.
