Sippin is undefeated in seven starts, six of them last year at 2.

Sippin, who is undefeated in seven starts, was among a handful of horses who received divisional honors from the New Mexico Horse Breeders’ Association last week in Albuquerque. Sippin was the leading 2-year-old New Mexico-bred filly for 2016 after winning all six of her starts last year.

Her dam, Samba Queen, was recognized as the broodmare of the year. Sippin races for her breeder, R.D. Hubbard.

Other winners included the state’s stallion of the year, Attila’s Storm; older male, D E Lover; and older filly or mare, Zasha. The New Mexico organization also handed out divisional awards to the state’s top Quarter Horses.
