Sunland: Hennesey Smash challenges older in bid for fifth straight win
Hennesey Smash will be seeking her fifth consecutive win when she takes on older rivals Sunday in the $85,000 New Mexico State Racing Commission Handicap at Sunland Park. The race is one of two sprint stakes on the card for New Mexico-breds. The $85,000 Johnie L. Jamison Handicap is led by New Mexico Cup Sprint winner Attitude E Racer.
Hennesey Smash will be coming back just six days after she won a Zia Park allowance. She led throughout for a 3 3/4-length win, and now moves back to the six-furlong distance of her last stakes score, the $140,000 New Mexico Cup Filly for 3-year-olds at Zia on Oct. 28. Derek Bell has the mount for trainer Todd Fincher.
Fincher will also send out the race’s defending champ, Rose’s Desert. She enters off a runner-up finish in the $170,000 New Mexico Cup Filly and Mare Championship at Zia. Casey Lambert has the mount on Rose’s Desert.
The Jamison is for 3-year-olds and up over 6 1/2 furlongs, and it will be Attitude E Racer’s first start since his Oct. 28 win in the $170,000 New Mexico Cup Sprint at Zia. Ken Tohill has the mount for trainer Joel Marr.
Justin Evans, who is coming off the training title at Zia, will counter with a pair of off-the-pace specialists, Our Choice, who has won four stakes this year, and Nuggets Please, who comes off an optional $20,000 claiming win at Zia.
“Both of their styles fit the race pretty good,” said Evans.
Our Choice was a $25,000 claim a year ago at Sunland for Stable s M A and Evans.
“We claimed him last December here and the horse has made almost $270,000 since the claim,” said Evans. “He tailed off a little at Zia. He was fourth last time, but that horse isn’t a big fan of the Zia track. Sunland is the track he likes the best. He really likes Sunland a lot. He worked a bullet here the other day.”
