Telequest (Greeley’s Conquest – Telecaster, by Cactus Ridge) took down a $26,000 maiden special weight race Monday evening at Zia Park to make him the most recent first time winner for Greeley’s Conquest! The chestnut gelding covered the 6 furlongs in 1:10.18 and added $15,600 to his bankroll for the victory. It was quite an eventful stretch run with Telequest getting whipped… by the second place horse’s jockey… twice! No kidding, the jockey aboard second place finisher Super Accord whipped Telequest, who was on the inside, with his left hand as he started to drift out, then switched the whip to his right hand and reached over his own horse to hit Telequest again! Pretty unbelievable, but the results stood after a steward’s inquiry and an objection were filed. Telequest was bred in Kentucky by his owner, Dream Walkin’ Farms (Toby Keith). Congratulations to Dream Walkin’ Farms as well as Telequest’s jockey, Frank Reyes, and his trainer, Paul Smith. Best of luck with this horse in the future!
