Sunland Park track report


Tuesday's featured 10th race did little to clear up the confusing picture among the older route horses at Sunland Park.

Brew, the defending champion in this division, had disappointed in his return to the races after a layoff of over four months on Jan. 12, finishing a well-beaten seventh behind a newcomer to the division, Beehay. Entered back in Tuesday's allowance race Brew was again bet down to favoritism and although he was carried extremely wide, he still rallied through the lane to be beaten a nose by the always tough Accomodator. Accomodator, owned and trained by Ramon Gonzalez and ridden by Daryl Montoya, returned $15.80.

The next stakes for this group is the $30,000-added Curribot Handicap on Feb. 9 at 1 1/16 miles, a race in which Accomodator upset Brew last year and is also expected to draw newly turned 4-year-old Beehay.

Trainer Johnie Jamison said he hopes Tuesday's race will have Brew set up for a peak performance in the Curribot.

- The carryover in Sunland's twin trifecta has exceeded $26,000 as of Tuesday. The twin tri is run as the third and fourth races on the card.

- Starting next Tuesday, post time for the first race switches to 1:05 p.m. Mountain.

- The inaugural running of the $300,000 Championship at Sunland Park was selected the best Quarter Horse race of the year in a poll conducted by the American Quarter Horse Association.
