Dismissed at nearly 18-1 odds, Sandys Jesse shocked a field of elite three-year-olds in the New Mexico Horse Breeders’ Association Stakes at Sunland Park Racetrack and Casino on Sunday.

Under jockey Tanner Thedford, Sandys Jesse produced a career best effort to win the New Mexico-bred feature at 400 yards by a half-length. The Jesse James, Jr. filly broke on top and quickly took the lead away from the gate and poured on the pressure. She maintained a high cruising speed through the stretch to hold off both One Blazin Kimbo and Es Dove. The Alonzo Orozco trained filly roared through the distance in a fast 19.267 seconds, good for an 89 speed index. The victory was her fourth overall and first stakes win from nine career starts. The quick sophomore earned $51,000 for owner Chin Lee. Sandys Jesse’s career bankroll is nearing the $100,000 mark.

Sandys Jesse paid a healthy $37.40 to win on a $2 ticket.

One Blazin Kimbo, hailing from the red hot barn of Victor Rodriguez-Flores had no excuses and ran second. The strapping son of Chicks a Blazin broke cleanly but lacked the winner’s gate speed. The runner-up surged in the final yards to get second place, a nose in front of the fast closing Es Dove. The Rodriguez-Flores barn had been winning at almost a 60 percent strike rate this season.

Es Dove closed nicely as a 22-1 long shot. Rex Hill finished fourth, beaten one length. Shue Fly winner Slew by You was never a factor and finished well back in seventh place.

Live racing resumes on Tuesday at 1 p.m. The new post time will remain in effect for the remainder of the meet.
