Ruidoso Downs, NM – August 17, 2013 – Sa Moken Alarm, a gray or roan filly by Desert God consigned by Joe Allen of Abilene, Texas, sold for $77,000 to lead Saturday’s New Mexico-Bred Thoroughbred Yearling Sale at Ruidoso Downs.
Ed Wright Cattle Co. of Amarillo, Texas, signed the ticket for the filly, whose dam, the 13-year-old Smoke Glacken mare Sa Moken, won the $41,739 Ken Kendrick Memorial Futurity (R) for New Mexico-breds at SunRay Park in 2002.
Sa Moken Alarm is a full sister to Dream Kin, a winning 7-year-old Desert God mare who finished second to Blue Eyed Bella in the ‘08 New Mexico Cup Juvenile Fillies Stakes (R) at Zia Park and the 2011 New Mexico State Racing Commission Handicap (R) at Sunland Park.
Two yearlings, an unnamed Diabolical colt consigned by A & A Ranch of Anthony, New Mexico, and an unnamed Attila’s Storm colt consigned by Crystal Springs Ranch of Tularosa, New Mexico, sold for $50,000 each.
Reliance Ranches LLC of Llano, Texas, acquired the Diabolical colt, who is a half sister to 2009 Copper Top Futurity (R) winner Explosive Mine and Red Peaches, a winning daughter of Ghostly Moves who ran third in the ‘07 New Mexico Cup Juvenile Fillies Stakes (R) at Zia Park.
The Attila’s Storm colt was acquired by Joe Dee Brooks of Levelland, Texas. The colt’s dam, Innes, is an unraced Kentucky-bred daughter of the Seattle Slew stallion A.P. Indy, and he is a half brother to Melanosporum, a colt by Royal Anthem who ran second in two Group 3 stakes in France.
