  Doer Not A Faker, a bay daughter of Diabolical racing for J. Kirk and Judy Robison of El Paso, Texas, led at every call in route to
a neck victory in the February 19, $100,000 Enchantress Stakes for New Mexico-bred 3-year- old Thoroughbred fillies at Sunland Park.
Ridden by Luis Fuentes for trainer Todd Fincher and racing under showery skies, Doer Not A Faker covered 1 mile in 1:40.80 on a track officially labeled “good.” The filly earned $60,000 from her first stakes win.
Doer Not A Faker was bred by the Robisons and Downstream Racing LLC. Her sire, Diabolical, is a 20-year-old multiple graded stakes winning son of the Marquetry stallion Artax. Campaigned in five countries from 2005-09, Diabolical banked $1,467,401 from 32 races, and his nine wins included the
2007 Alfred G. Vanderbilt Handicap (G2) at Saratoga and Emirates Airline Maryland Sprint Handicap (G3) at Pimlico.
Diabolical has sired 14 official black-type stakes winners and the earners of more than $10.1 million from 11 crops, including multiple stakes winners My Boanerges, Roll On Diabolical, Diabolical Dame, and Fast Gator, and stakes winners Mama Was A Rocket and Diabolical Ruler.
Doer Not A Faker is one of nine winners from 10 starters produced by Complete Package, a winning Virginia-bred daughter of the Danzig stallion Boundary. A 1999 foal, Complete
Package produced That’s The Idea, a full sister to Doer Not A Faker who won three New Mexico-bred stakes from 2013-14, including the 2013 Rio Grande Senorita Futurity (R) at Ruidoso Downs and New Mexico Cup Juvenile Fillies Stakes (R) at Zia Park.
Doer Not A Faker’s second dam, Buy The Firm, was a Florida-bred daughter of 1978 Triple Crown winner Affirmed who won five graded stakes from 1990-91, including the 1991 Top Flight Handicap (G1) at Aqueduct. Buy The Firm foaled Grade 3 winner Storm Broker and stakes winner Royal Arrow, both half-brothers to Complete Package.
Doer Not A Faker traces back to her third dam, By The Hand, a winning daughter of
the Intent stallion Intentionally and full sister to multiple stakes winner Shelter Bay. By The Hand produced Image Of Greatness, a half- brother to Buy The Firm who won the 1985 San Felipe Handicap (G1) at Santa Anita Park.
Doer Not A Faker began her sophomore season with a fourth-place finish, 2 3/4 lengths behind winner and stablemate Mama Was A Rocket, in the 6-furlong, $100,000 La Senora Stakes (R)
on January 15. All told, the filly has won three of seven starts and has earned $89,347, of which $65,000 has been banked from two outs this season. Her 2-year-old record included a fourth- place finish in the October 30, 6-furlong New Mexico Cup Lassie Championship (R) at Zia
Park, and she was a finalist in the 5 1/2-furlong, $129,000 Rio Grande Senorita Futurity (R) at Ruidoso Downs.
Crafty Money ran second and was followed by Pandora Who, Bellamundo, Hannah’s Highlife and Miss Fluffy. A homebred daughter of the Uncle Mo stallion Conquest Mo Money owned by Tom and Sandy McKenna’s Judge Lanier Racing, Crafty Money earned the $20,000 runner-up share of the purse to bring her bankroll to $21,104 from two outs.
Pandora Who races for Sam E. Stevens and Sammy L. Stevens of Lamesa, Texas, who also bred the dark bay or brown daughter of the Indian Charlie stallion Comfort. The filly pocketed the $10,000 third-place share of the Enchantress Stakes purse to push her earnings to $14,263 from five starts.
