Sam Vasquez’ Golly Shez Hot SV wins in Texas
Golly Shez Hot SV won Wathba Stallions Cup at Lone Star Park on October 24, which served as not only the first career wins for the Sam Vasquez-bred 5-year-old grey mare but also the first for a horse sired by Mags Mad Max. Mags Mad Max also represented Vasquez and won multiple stakes races in a 50-race career that took him all around the country from 2004 to 2009.
Congratulations to the connections of Golly Shez Hot SV (Mags Mad Max x Gizmoson Fire, by Burning Sand). She is bred/owned by Sam Vasquez, trained by Renee Lafleur-Diaz, and was ridden by Victor Manuel Urieta Jr.
Golly Shez Hot SV held under steady urging to win by 1 1/2 lengths over the Grilla daughter, Nilla.
