Senor Amigo's stock on the rise

Email

Senor Amigo cemented his reputation as one of the top Texas-breds in training last Saturday night at Retama Park, when he won the $100,000 Texas Hall of Fame for statebreds by a widening six lengths. For his effort, he earned a career-best Beyer Speed Figure of 95.

"He ran a great race," said Scott Blasi, who trains Senor Amigo.

The win was Senor Amigo's second in a Texas-bred stakes this year, following his victory in the $50,000 Premier Stakes at Lone Star Park in April. Later this season, he could make an appearance in either a dirt or turf stakes on the Texas Champions Day card at Sam Houston on Dec. 2.

"I'm not sure yet what we're going to do with him," said Blasi. "We'll see how he comes out of this race and work him back and see where we're going to run him. But we're awful happy with what happened the other night."

o Wrenice could also turn up next on Texas Champions Day, in the $50,000 Bara Lass for 2-year-old fillies at seven furlongs, said her trainer, Randy Mayfield. Or, she could go in the $100,000 My Trusty Cat at seven furlongs at Delta Downs on Nov. 3. Mayfield said plans are still being determined. Wrenice won the $125,000 fillies division of the Texas Stallion Stakes on Saturday night, one start after a 17-length allowance score at Retama.

o The inaugural Wetherbys fall mixed sale will be held at Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth on Saturday. The sale begins at noon. On offer are more than 50 broodmares, 30 yearlings, and 15 horses of racing age. The new sale is operated by Brian Wallis, owner of Dormello Stud in Texas.
