A super sonic boom makes quite a bit of noise – and so he did, A Super Sonic Boom, that is, in Sunday's $101,680 New Mexico Breeders' Futurity (RG2) at SunRay Park.

The gray colt broke his maiden in his third career start and, with the win, boosted his earnings to $47,780 for owner/breeder Hubaldo Solis, who has also bred such premier horses as Osbaldo ($408,989).

A Super Sonic Boom is by freshman sire Big Daddy Cartel and out of the Strawflyin Buds mare Strawberryberryfast.

Big Daddy Cartel is a son of leading living sire Corona Cartel and from a rich mare family, being out of the Mr Eye Opener mare Miss Racy Eyes, the $113,195-earning half-sister of champion Miss Racy Jess ($485,113), etc.

The talented colt made only five career starts but, despite that, still earned $121,800; he was fourth in the Rainbow Futurity (G1) and eighth in the All American Futurity (G1).

Now owned by MJ Farms of Veguita, New Mexico, the young sire has already climbed to the top of the freshman sire list, with $183,460 in progeny earnings from only 17 starters.

He is also the sire of the Huberto Solis-bred Big Spurs, who was second in the New Mexican Spring Futurity (RG2).

Dam Strawberryberryfast was….well…maybe not quite that fast, but she certainly carries and passes on the blood. She has from seven starters produced five winners, including stakes-placed Vicente Y Su Corona (by Stel Corona, $147,906) and Thunder Stric Again (by Choo Choo Smith, $102,424).

Her sire Strawflyin Buds is a son of the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame inductee, Strawfly Special. The Grade 1 winner has sired the earners of more than $4.5 million in his career.

Her dam, Beduinos Cash, is a daughter of Takin On The Cash out of the Beduino (TB) mare Beduino Dancer, and is also the dam of stakes-producer Segura (by Rare Form) and a sister to
stakes winner and sire Sambaso Dancer ($85,123).

This rich mare line also includes A Super Sonic Boom’s fourth dam, Topless Dancer, and fifth dam, Miss Jelly Roll.

Miss Jelly Roll, of course, is the dam of champion and sire Pie In The Sky, sire Roll The Cash and producer Its Called Class, among others.

This mare line is also immediately responsible for the likes of Grade 1-placed Three Past Six ($160,040), Fast Preacher Man ($143,391), Dash For Popa ($146,706), TF Featured Effort ($343,403), Le Magnifique FG ($170,637), Heza Jettin Solo ($177,073), etc.

So next time you hear a deafening roar, check your program – it might be A Super Sonic Boom, coming from the racetrack near you.
