RSS Feeds Wednesday, August 14, 2013
Thirteen of the 280 2-year-olds entered in this year’s 440-yard All American Futurity (G1) trials, which will be held at Ruidoso Downs Racetrack on Thursday and Friday, are New Mexico-breds.

Also, Saturday’s 440-yard All American Derby (G1) trials at Ruidoso have drawn four New Mexico-bred sophomores, including open Grade 1 winner and 2012 AQHA champion filly PJ Chick In Black.

Seven New Mexico-breds are entered in Thursday’s All American Futurity trials -- VGC Flintstone and Mighty Moonflash (second trial), Gonna Make You Royal (sixth), Chappstick (seventh), Handsome Jack Flash (eighth), MM Stoney Bay (11th), and Dust From Heaven (14th).

A homebred son of champion First Moonflash racing for Norma Alvarez, Brenda Alvarez, and Debra Laney, and trained by Juan M. Gonzalez, Handsome Jack Flash has won all three of his starts and has earned $180,951. The gelding is coming off of a half-length victory against state-breds in the 400-yard, $409,000 Zia Futurity (RG1) at Ruidoso Downs on July 28.

Gonna Make You Royal races for Bowers and Seago Racing from the barn of trainer Chris Zamora. The sorrel son of the Mr Jess Perry stallion Gonamakeyoureyesblue broke his maiden with a one-length win in the 400-yard, $20,000 By By JJ Stakes (R) on July 27.

The six New Mexico-breds entered in Friday’s All American Futurity trials are -- DM One Hot Charmer (fourth trial), Tylerate (fifth), Too Flash For You (sixth), Moonfisant (eighth), First Duke (ninth), and Flashin Honey Bee (14th).

Moonifisant is an undefeated colt by Sixes Royal who has won all three of his races, including the 300-yard New Mexican Spring Futurity (RG2) at Sunland Park on April 7. Moonifisant is owned by Peter Gallegos, Robert Sanchez, and Patricia Gonzalez and is trained by Juan M. Gonzalez.

Too Flash For You is coming off of a ninth-place finish as the fastest qualifier in the Zia Futurity. The First Moonflash gelding is owned by Jose R. Espinoza, Jim Laird, and Michelle Laird and is trained by Wes Giles.

PJ Chick In Black, a daughter of Desirio campaigned by Dennis Bowen, Susan Taylor, and Jack Smith Farms, and trained by John Stinebaugh, scored a one-length victory in the March 30, 400-yard West Texas Derby (G3) at Sunland Park. The filly was the fifth-fastest qualifier to the July 20 Rainbow Derby (G1) but was scratched from the final.

The other New Mexico-bred 3-year-olds entered in the Derby trials are -- An Absolut Diamond (second trial, third race), Ketel Now (fourth trial, fifth race), and Brotherman (eighth trial, ninth race).
