   Derrick W. Jenkins’ Corrina Corrina, a homebred 4-year-old Mr. Trieste filly, was a prompt 6-5 favorite in the July 23, 5 1/2-furlong Lincoln Stakes (R) for New Mexico-bred fillies and mares at Ruidoso Downs.
Ridden by Tracy Hebert for trainer Gary Cross, Corrina Corrina defeated Lemon Drop Gold by 5 3/4 lengths in 1:05.61. The dark bay or brown filly earned her fourth career stakes win and the $30,000 winner’s share of the $50,000 purse.
Corrina Corrina is one of 31 winners from 49 starters sired by Mr. Trieste, a Kentucky- bred son of the A.P. Indy stallion Old Trieste. Campaigned in five states from 2003-12, Mr. Trieste banked $605,474 from 39 races, and he won nine stakes in New Mexico, including the $100,000 Sunland Park Handicap in 2006.
Mr. Trieste has sired one official black- type stakes winner -- Motivare -- and the earners of more than $2.6 million from 13 crops. A half-brother to Grade 2 winner Nate’s Mineshaft, the stallion is owned by Derrick W. Jenkins and stands at Jenkins Farm near Hobbs, New Mexico.
Corrina Corrina is also one of three winners from as many starters produced
by Scared Money, a winning daughter
of Carson City. The filly’s second dam, Triple Bright, is an unraced Kentucky- bred daughter of the Vice Regent stallion Deputy Minister.
Corrina Corrina’s third dam, the unplaced Lord Durham mare Finally Found, foaled two graded stakes winning siblings to Triple Bright, including Stolen Beauty, a full sister to Triple Bright who won the 1991 Demoiselle Stakes (G3) at Aqueduct Racetrack. Corrina Corrina traces back to her fourth dam, Bon Debarras, an unraced Ruritania mare who produced three stakes-winning half siblings to Finally Found.
Corrina Corrina has won seven of 19 outs and has banked $485,870.
Tight Fittin Jeans ran third, 10 3/4 lengths behind Corrina Corrina. Delia, Desert Spirit, Bossy Baby, Flaxy Lady and Comic Hot Toddy completed the order of finish.
A daughter of the Mr. Greeley stallion Mr. Gold Mover, Lemon Drop Gold races for Paul Jenson, and she was making her 6-year-old season debut in the Lincoln Stakes. The chestnut mare has won five
of 13 starts -- including last year’s 5 1/2-furlong, $100,000 New Mexico State Racing Commission Handicap (R) at Sunland Park -- and the $10,000 runner-up share of the Lincoln Stakes purse pushed her earnings to $200,306.
Tight Fittin Jeans races for Greg Green, Delinda Green and Corie O’Connor.
A homebred 6-year-old daughter of
the Indian Charlie stallion Shame On Charlie, the bay mare has won six of 25 starts, including the 2020 Sierra Starlet Handicap (R) at Ruidoso Downs, and she has banked $238,877.
