  Derrick W. Jenkins’ Corrina Corrina was
a prompt 4-5 favorite in the September 23, 6 1/2-furlong Carlos Salazar Stakes (R) for New Mexico-bred distaffers at Albuquerque Downs.
Prepped by Gary Cross, Corrina Corrina defeated 13-1 longshot Bikini Time by a clear 12 1/4 lengths in 1:15.67. Tracy Hebert rode the homebred 4-year-old Mr. Trieste filly,
who banked the $58,000 winner’s share of the $100,000 purse while extending her win streak to three races.
Corrina Corrina is one of 32 winners from 49 starters sired by Mr. Trieste, a Kentucky-bred son of the A.P. Indy stallion Old Trieste. Campaigned at 12 tracks in five states from 2003-12, Mr. Trieste earned $605,474 from 39 races and won nine stakes in New Mexico, including the 2005 Zia Park Distance Championship and 2006 Sunland Park Handicap.
From 13 crops, Mr. Trieste has sired one official black-type stakes winner -- Motivare
-- and the earners of more than $2.7 million. A half-brother to 2012 New Orleans Handicap (G2) winner Nate’s Mineshaft, the stallion is owned by Derrick Jenkins and stands at his farm near Hobbs, New Mexico.
Corrina Corrina is out of Scared Money, a winning New York-bred daughter of the Mr. Prospector stallion Carson City who foaled three winners from as many starters. The filly’s second dam, the unraced Deputy Minister
mare Triple Bright, produced four winners from five starters.
Corrina Corrina’s third dam, the unplaced Lord Durham mare Finally Found, foaled five winners from as many starters, including Stolen Beauty, a full sister to Triple Bright who won
the 1991 Demoiselle Stakes (G3) at Aqueduct, and Finality, a half-brother to Triple Bright
who won the 2002 Jamaica Handicap (G2) at Belmont Park. The filly traces back to her fourth dam, Bon Debarras, an unraced daughter of the Graustark stallion Ruritania who produced three stakes-winning half-siblings to Finally Found, including 16-time stakes winner Eternal Search and five-time stakes winner Gone To Royalty.
Corrina Corrina’s current win streak includes a clear 5 3/4-length victory in the 5 1/2-furlong, $50,000 Lincoln Stakes (R) for New Mexico- bred fillies and mares at Ruidoso Downs on July 23. All told, the filly has won nine of 21 races
-- including four of eight at the 6 1/2-furlong distance -- and she has earned $588,870. Her career stakes record includes wins in the March 5, 1-mile Peppers Pride Stakes (R) at Sunland Park and last year’s 1-mile, $100,000 Casino at The Downs Derby (R) at Albuquerque Downs, and she ran third, four lengths behind winner Bella Runner, in last year’s open 1 1/16-mile, $250,000 Zia Park Oaks.
Lemon Drop Gold ran third, 13 lengths behind Corrina Corrina, and was followed by
Flaxy Lady, Caycee’s Mark, Our Time To Shine, Bella Dona, Raise Our Flag and Better Believe.
Bikini Time pocketed the $20,000 runner-up share of the Carlos Salazar Stakes purse for her owner, Brian Mundell. A homebred daughter
of the Forest Wildcat stallion Attila’s Storm, the 5-year-old bay mare has won four of 11 races
-- including the 5 1/2-furlong, $100,000 New Mexico State Racing Commission Handicap (R) on New Year’s Day at Sunland Park -- and she has banked $186,630.
Lemon Drop Gold is a 6-year-old daughter of the Mr. Greeley stallion Mr. Gold Mover racing for Paul Jenson. The chestnut mare has won five of 14 outs, including last year’s New Mexico State Racing Commission Handicap (R), and the $10,000 runner-up share of the purse increased her earnings to $210,306.
