Belleofthebeach Takes To The Mud To Win Aspen Cup at Ruidoso Downs

Amanda Greer

            RUIDOSO DOWNS, New Mexico (August 9, 2014) – Teed Off Stables, LLC’s Belleofthebeach took to the muddy track with a late-running victory in the $50,000 Aspen Cup for three-year-old fillies on Saturday afternoon at Ruidoso Downs.

            The Irwin Rosendo-ridden filly covered the six furlongs in 1:12.46.

            Belleofthebeach rated behind the leaders until making a bid on the turn. She was slightly checked while moving between horses leaving the quarter pole, however proved to be the best filly in the race when she pulled away for the two-and-one-quarter-length win.

            Awesome Dama finished second, two-and-three-quarter lengths ahead of third-place finisher Stormquility.

            Belleofthebeach, the 13-10 favorite, raced to her third-straight win and her first stakes victory. The Justin Evans-trained miss won a pair of races at Sunland Park before making her Ruidoso Downs’ debut in the Aspen Cup. She took a $25,000 optional-claiming race by eight-and-one-quarter lengths and then a $35,9000 allowance race by six-and-one-quarter lengths.

            The Kentucky-bred daughter of Master Command has four wins and a pair of seconds from nine starts.
