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.

Conn Creek is a full brother to Grade 1 winner and one-time 440-yard world record holder Kendall Jackson. The colt's half sister, the First Down Dash filly Alice K White, was the 2009 AQHA champion 3-year-old filly.

Conn Creek and tenth-fastest qualifier Tombstone are the only two-time winners in the full field of 10. A homebred gelding by Get Down Perry campaigned by Gary L. Thompson, Tombstone is coming off of a 1 1/4-length victory in his trial.

The complete lineup, in post position order including jockey assignments and morning-line odds – Gotcha By The Jewels (Ramon Sanchez), 10-1; Tombstone (Oscar Ortega), 3-1; Famous Jesse (Cody Jensen), 8-1; Conn Creek (Joe Martinez), 5-2; Reacorona Jr (Tony Guymon), 20-1; Major Freddie Jr (Alejandro Medellin), 20-1; Junior June Bug (Freddie Martinez), 6-1; PJ Chick In Black (Esgar Ramirez), 6-1; Ms James (Antonio Escareno), 12-1; and Posies Desiria (J.
