Slewpy's Storm likely locked up champion older filly or mare honors from the Texas Thoroughbred Association with her win in the $75,000 Martanza Stakes at Sam Houston on Saturday night. It was her third stakes win of the year, and her point total continues to dominate her division's standings, which are compiled by the TTA.

This summer, Slewpy's Storm won the $100,000 Allen Bogan Memorial for Texas-breds at Lone Star Park and the $50,000 Delicada at Louisiana Downs. She was a front-running 1 1/4-length winner of the Martanza.

"This is what we've been shooting for ever since Louisiana," said Brent Davidson, who trains Slewpy's Storm for her breeder, Stephen Baker.

Davidson said next-race plans are still being discussed for Slewpy's Storm, but one long-term possibility is the $40,000 Houston Ladies Stakes for fillies and mares at seven furlongs at Sam Houston on March 25.

Slewpy's Storm, 4, is by Storm Creek.

* Goosey Moose, another top older Texas-bred, is being freshened, and will likely be back in action at Lone Star Park, said his trainer, Danny Pish.

"He needs a little rest," said Pish. "I anticipate a nice comeback out of him."

Goosey Moose, who won the $100,000 Star of Texas last year at Sam Houston, has won 6 of 20 starts and $274,100.

* Lertxundi and Generally Lucky are among the top contenders in the featured eighth race on Friday night, an entry-level allowance for 2-year-olds at one mile. The purse is $13,500.
