Sunland Park will present three more stakes for New Mexico-breds on its racing programs this weekend, starting with the 870-yard, $110,000 Challenger Six Handicap (R) for Quarter Horses and Thoroughbreds on Saturday.

The Challenger Six will be followed by two state-bred stakes on Sunday – the 400-yard, $110,000 Lou Wooten Handicap (RG1) for Quarter Horse fillies and mares, and the 1-mile, $110,000 Enchantress Stakes (R) for Thoroughbred 2-year-old fillies.

Bullets Brother, a 7-year-old gelding by Real Runaway racing for Veronica O. Gonzalez and trainer Martin Orona Sr., is the 2-1 morning-line favorite for the Challenger Six. Bullets Brother has won three of seven races this season, including the October 30, $148,240 New Mexico Cup 870 Championship (R) at Zia Park.

Another contender, Rogelio Carrasco's BRT Opulence, is coming off of a third-place finish in the New Mexico Cup 870 Championship. The 7-year-old Real Runaway gelding has won two 870 stakes this season, including the $85,000 New Mexico Horsemen's Association Handicap (R) at SunRay Park on July 10.

The complete lineup for the Challenger Six, including also-eligible entries, in post position order including jockey and weight assignments and morning-line odds – KC Royal Flush (Tony Guymon, 123), 20-1; Mary For Money (Casey Lambert, 123), 4-1; Klassic Strawfly (Macario Rodriguez, 123), 10-1; BRT Opulence (Esgar Ramirez, 125), 3-1; Lalumbredelospateres (Ricky Ramirez, 123), 20-1; Rabbit Revival (Alejandro Medellin, 122), 9-2; Corona Dream (Salvador Martinez, 123), 8-1; Bullets Brother (Vicente Grajeda, 125), 2-1; AE-Whata Lucky Man (L.

The Lou Wooten Handicap has drawn a full field of 11 New Mexico-bred distaffers, including one also-eligible entry. Jenuine Joy, a homebred 5-year-old daughter of Genuine Strawfly, is the 126-pound high weight.

Jenuine Joy has won five stakes during her 14-race career, including last year's Lou Wooten by a half of a length. The mare has earned $381,680 for her owner, Fredda Draper of Ruidoso Downs, New Mexico.

Another Lou Wooten contender, K.H. Logax Inc.'s Snow Regard, is coming off of a head victory in the 400-yard, $149,000 New Mexico Fillies & Mares Championship (RG1) at Zia Park on November 26.
