Incoho Tes Upsets Senora Stakes

Former claimer scores in her stakes debut at SunRay Park.

April 28, 2013

Incoho Tes, who had spent most of her career in the claiming ranks, made a successful transition to stakes company on Sunday at SunRay Park as the 7-year-old daughter of Rabbits Rainbow rallied for a 12-1 upset in the $65,000 Four Corners Senora Stakes (RG3) for New Mexico-bred fillies and mares. Piloted by Manuel Gutierrez for owner and trainer Juan Torres, Incoho Tes dashed 400 yards in :19.449.

Incoho Tes, who was bred by Mr. and Mrs. R.C. Jones, did not make her racing debut until age 4, and she broke her maiden for a $6,500 claiming tag in her third outing in November 2010. She spent all of 2011 in claiming events with one victory in nine starts. She did not face the starter for 13 months until returning to action last December at Sunland, where she moved up to face allowance foes and ran a good second. Then she picked up a victory in March at Sunland against $20,000 claiming foes before making her stakes debut in the Senora. Her record now stands at 16-4-3-0 with earnings of $80,360.

Socorro Medrano’s Maggie Get Down, a mare by Get Down Perry who was also stepping up from claiming company to make her stakes debut, put in a solid effort to finish second.

WDC Wendys Wine, the 1-5 favorite after taking third in the Bank of America Sunland Championship Challenge (G2) on April 7, finished a close third. Sandys Jesse, a two-time stakes winner this year at Sunland, was a late scratch.
