SC Money Maker wins Higheasterjet Handicap at Ruidoso Downs

RUIDOSO DOWNS —SC Money Maker covered 350 yards in a speedy 17.25 seconds Saturday to win the Grade II Higheasterjet Handicap at Ruidoso Downs Race Track. The Mike Robbins-trained gelding captured the $24,000 winner’s share of the $40,000 purse and paid $33.80 on a $2 ticket.

The win came after a lengthy delay caused by thundershowers and lightning in the area after which the race was run on a sealed track. The morning line favorite, Consigliere, finished second to SC Money Maker by two lengths, and Senator Fast Jack finished third by a nose.

Racing continues Sunday at 1 p.m. at Ruidoso Downs with the running of the First Lady Handicap for fillies and mares.
