Sparked by a tremendous start, Fire On The Fly raced away to post a visually impressive 2 and ¼ length victory in the 15th running of the $53,640 Red Cell New Mexico Distance Challenge at Sunland Park Racetrack and Casino.

Under jockey Larry Gamez, the 870 yard loving Quarter Horse flew from the gates and took a daylight advantage over 1-2 favorite Storm Chasor rounding the turn for home. Fire On The Fly came rolling into the stretch with an abundance of energy, and the son of Jet Cartel delivered a tour de force performance. The Wes Giles trainee pulled further in front and won with speed to spare. The winning time was 44.489 seconds, good for 101 speed index. Fire On The Fly paid $9.00 as the 7-2 second choice.

The sensational four-year-old Texas-bred gelding has won four of his last five races. The newly crowned stakes winner earned $32,184 for the Bullard Farms of Weatherford, Texas. He has won 6 times from 15 starts.

Storm Chasor ran a strong race and was bet down to the odds on choice. The well bred son of Attila’s Storm tried hard chasing the winner throughout. The imposing New Mexico-bred could not cut into the deficit and held to settle for second with jockey Esgar Ramirez in the saddle. He was coming off two mighty wins going 870 yards with a combined win margin of nearly 14 lengths. Storm Chasor finished over 5 lengths in front of Valentino de Lao who edged out Captain Wallace for third.

Live racing resumes on Tuesday at 12:55 p.m. There are only 2 more race weekends left to the 2013-14 racing season which culminates on Tuesday, April 15.
