Fastest qualifier and morning-line favorite Conn Creek will break from post 4 in Sunday's 300-yard, $251,333 New Mexican Spring Futurity (RG2) at Sunland Park.

A colt by Dash Ta Fame racing for Paul Blanchard and trained by Carlos Sedillo, Conn Creek scored a two-length victory in the seventh of eight trials on March 16. Conn Creek has won both of his starts and has earned $21,000.
