Reliance Ranches LLC’s Proofsinthepuddin is the morning-line favorite and 120-pound highweight for Sunday’s 1-mile, $100,000 Peppers Pride Handicap (R) for New Mexico-bred fillies and mares at Sunland Park.

A 4-year-old daughter of the Bernardini stallion Marking trained by Todd Fincher, Proofisinthepuddin is coming off of a third-place finish, 2 1/4 lengths behind winner Slammed, in the 6-furlong, $100,000 La Coneja Stakes (R) on February 6. The chestnut filly has earned $98,224 from 10 races.

Proofsinthepuddin drew post and will be ridden by Roimes Chirinos.

Other contenders include Our Time To Shine, a 4-year-old daughter of the Distorted Humor stallion Laugh Track racing for Scott R. Bean, James D. Masek, and trainer Nancy Summers. Our Time To Shine will be stretching out in distance off of her 3 3/4-length victory in a 6 1/2-length victory in a $35,000 non-winners-of-three allowance for New Mexico-bred distaffers at Sunland Park on February 8.

Our Time To Shine was a $7,000 yearling purchase at the 2019 New Mexico-Bred Sale at Ruidoso Downs. The dark bay or brown filly drew post 3 and will be ridden by Kelsi Purcell.
