   Derrick W. Jenkins’ Corrina Corrina rallied to win the March 5th, 1-mile Peppers Pride Handicap (R) for New Mexico-bred fillies and mares at Sunland Park.
Ridden by Ken Tohill and sent to post as the 3-10 favorite in a field of seven, Corrina Corrina stopped the timer in 1:37.43 while finishing a half of a length in front of Bye Bye Brandi. Gary Cross trained the homebred 4-year-old Mr. Trieste filly, who earned the $60,000 winner’s share of a $100,000 purse.
Corrina Corrina is one of 31 winners from
48 starters sired by Mr. Trieste, a 22-year-old
son of the A.P. Indy stallion Old Trieste owned
by Derrick Jenkins. A half-brother to Grade 2 winner Nate’s Mineshaft, Mr. Trieste raced in five states -- including New Mexico and Kentucky
-- from 2003-12 and earned $605,474 from 39 starts. The stallion won nine stakes, all in New Mexico, including the 2005 Zia Park Distance Championship and 2006 Sunland Park Handicap.
From 12 crops, Mr. Trieste has sired the earners of more than $2.4 million, and his one official black-type stakes winner -- Motivare -- won the 2012 Oklahoma Classics Lassie Stakes (R) for state-bred 2-year-old fillies at Remington Park.
Corrina Corrina is also one of three winners from as many starters produced by Scared Money, a winning daughter of the Mr Prospector stallion Carson City. The filly’s
second dam, Triple Bright, was an unraced daughter of 1981 Canadian Horse of the Year Deputy Minister.
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 Racetrack, and Finality, a half-brother to Triple Bright who won the 2002 Jamaica Handicap (G2) at Belmont Park.
Corrina Corrina traces back to her fourth dam, Bon Debarras, an unraced daughter of
the Graustark stallion Ruritania. Bon Debarras produced three stakes winners, all of whom were half-siblings to Finally Found, including Eternal Search, a 15-time stakes winner in Canada from 1980-83, and Gone To Royalty, a five-time stakes winner in Canada from 1982-85.
Corrina Corrina was stretching out in distance off of her second-place finish, one
length behind winner Quatro, in the February
5, 6-furlong La Coneja Stakes (R). The filly has won six of 17 races and she has banked $435,870. Her sophomore season included victories in the
6 1/2-furlong, $100,000 Dine’ Stakes (R) at SunRay Park, and the 1-mile, $100,000 Casino at The Downs Derby (R) at Albuquerque Downs.
Our Time To Shine ran third, 2 1/4 lengths behind Corrina Corrina, and was followed by Bossy Baby, Flaxy Lady, Delia and Passion Belle.
Bye Bye Brandi was making her first start against stakes company while pocketing the $20,000 runner-up share of the Peppers Pride Handicap purse for her owner, B4 Farms LLC. A half-sister to stakes winner Hollywood Henry, the 4-year-old daughter of the Bernardini stallion Marking has won three of six outs and has earned $114,280.
Our Time To Shine is a 5-year-old daughter of the Distorted Humor stallion Laugh Track racing for Nancy Summers, Scott R. Bean and James D. Masek. A $7,000 yearling purchase by Summers at the 2019 New Mexico-Bred Sale at Ruidoso Downs, the dark bay or brown mare has banked $200,646 from 15 races,
and her four wins include last year’s 1-mile, $125,000 Peppers Pride New Mexico Cup Distaff Championship (R) at Zia Park.
