Queen Greeley targets Sunland Oaks


Queen Greeley, who earned a career-best Beyer Figure of 86 when she won her two-turn debut last month in the $50,000 Island Fashion Stakes, is now being pointed for the $200,000 Sunland Park Oaks, said her trainer, Todd Fincher.

"I think the further the better for her," he said.

The Oaks, at 1 1/16 miles, is part of the Grade 3, $800,000 Sunland Park Derby card March 28.

The Island Fashion, at a mile, was Queen Greeley's second stakes win at the Sunland meet. She also took the $50,000 El Paso Times at 6 1/2 furlongs in January.

w Glory Be Mine, who was the champion New Mexico-bred 2-year-old filly of 2009, came out of her last start with a bone chip in her right knee that has since been removed, according to Fincher.

"She'll probably be back in training around the first of May," he said, adding that he looks for Glory Be Mine to return to racing during the fall meet at Zia Park.

Glory Be Mine won the $125,000 La Senora at Sunland by 4 1/2 lengths in her last start, Jan. 16. Overall, she has won 5 of 7 starts, including four straight stakes between July and January.
