SunRay Park on Friday played host to the New Mexico Breeders' Stakes, which was won by David and Sandra Barrett's Carson City Girl.

Carson City Girl outran her 7-1 odds to win the $46,200 New Mexico Breeders' Stakes (RG2) for state-bred 3-year-olds at SunRay Park on Friday.

Ridden by Jaime Parga Leos and racing behind an 8-mph tail wind, Carson City Girl defeated 5-2 second choice Princess Jesse by a neck in :19.593 for 400 yards. Emilio Cadena III saddled the sorrel daughter of Woodbridge for owners David E. and Sandra K. Barrett.

Carson City Girl was bred by Mac and Janis Murray's MJ Farms at Veguita, New Mexico. The filly is out of Racetrack Barbie (TB), a 10-year-old Hidden City (TB) mare who won the 2009 Joanne Dye Stakes (R) at Turf Paradise.

Raced exclusively in New Mexico, Carson City Girl has won four of nine starts, including the 400-yard, $190,119 Shue Fly Stakes (RG2) at Sunland Park on January 17, and the $27,720 winner's share of the New Mexico Breeders' Stakes purse increased her bankroll to $168,697, of which $122,176 has been earned this season.

Super Star Smith, A Blazin Flash, Major Bites, Frank N Jesse, Jesses Leader, 2-1 favorite RG Miracle, Miss Ravens Wood, and Sweet Splenda completed the order of finish.
