Sunland Park track report


SUNLAND PARK, N.M. - Beehay equaled a 39-year-old track record of 1:15 for 6 1/2 furlongs on the way to his third stakes win of the meet in Saturday's $33,700 Bill Thomas Memorial Handicap.

Owned by John Bidwell and Carl Dyer, Beehay paid $15, largely because of his effort in the Curribot Handicap in his previous start. Beehay, who is trained by Dyer, is now in the running for horse of the meet honors with a month left in the season.

Tellme Truly, claimed for $10,000 by owner Luis Rivera and trainer Jose Gonzalez on Jan. 29, earned $11,280 on Tuesday for winning a $12,500 claiming race in her second start for her new connections. The win puts Tellme Truly in a tie for most wins at the meet with four. Tellme Truly now has a 6-4-1-1 record at Sunland and nearly $40,000 in earnings.
