COWBOY CAL’s 3YO ADHARA Wins El Paso Times S.
Stakes-placed in Churchill’s Debutante S. in her second career start last year, ADHARA outdueled her rivals in the stretch to win the El Paso Times S. by 3/4 length. The 3-year-old filly became COWBOY CAL’s newest blacktype winner and his eighth stakes horse of 2016. The Winchell Thoroughbreds homebred raced just behind the front two until the turn, split her rivals rounding the bend to take the lead at the top of the stretch and proved best going 6 1/2 furlongs on the dirt at Sunland Park. ADHARA won her 2-year-old debut at Churchill by nearly seven lengths and then finished runner-up, only 1 1/2 lengths back, in the Debutante. Lifetime record: 6-2-1-0, $90,712.
