Three-time graded stakes winner Call Me A Blazn Chic is the 9-5 morning-line choice in Saturday's $140,000-added New Mexico Fillies & Mares Championship (RG1) at Zia Park.
A $15,000 buy at the 2010 New Mexico-Bred Yearling Sale at Ruidoso Downs, Call Me A Blazn Chic has earned $452,125 for her owner, Javier Marquez's J & M Racing and Farm of Monahans, Texas. The 3-year-old daughter of the late Chicks A Blazn has won five of 13 starts, including the August 26, $50,000 Pelican Stakes (RG3) at The Downs at Albuquerque, and last year's $330,643 New Mexico Cup Futurity (RG2) at Zia Park and $384,031 Zia Futurity (G1) at Ruidoso Downs.
Call Me A Blazn Chic is trained by Jaime Dominguez. On Saturday, the filly will be ridden by Esgar Ramirez from post 1.
Wish You Had One To, a 3-year-old filly by Stel Corona owned and trained by Dominguez, is coming off of a neck victory as the 7-5 favorite in a 350-yard second-level allowance sprint for New Mexico-breds at Zia Park on October 20. A one-time $10,000 claimer, Wish You Had One To has won four of 16 starts, including the June 23, $75,000 Tommy “Duke” Smith Handicap (RG2) for New Mexico-breds at SunRay Park.
KH Logax Inc.'s Snow Regard, a 4-year-old daughter of Chicks Regard trained by Juan M. Gonzalez, won this race last season. Snow Regard has won two stakes, including last year's Sunburst Stakes (R) for state-bred 3-year-old fillies at Sunland Park.
Past winners of the New Mexico Fillies & Mares Championship, which began at Zia Park in 2006, include Mike Abraham's Blazin N Shakin, a homebred mare by Chicks A Blazin who won the race in 2009 and '10. Ms Regard holds the 400-yard stakes record of :19.16, set four years ago.
