Copper Top Futurity Trials Set for Tuesday
RSS Feeds Sunday, March 18, 2012
A total of 44 New Mexico-bred 2-year-olds have been entered in Tuesday's 4 1/2-furlong Copper Top Futurity (R) trials at Sunland Park.

The colts and geldings division of the trials drew 26 runners for three heats, while 18 have been entered in two fillies division trials.

Indication NM, a chestnut gelding by Atilla's Storm racing for Robert F. Haynsworth and J & SM Inc. and trained by Fred Danley, is the 8-5 morning-line favorite in the first colts and geldings trial. A $16,000 buy at last year's New Mexico-Bred Yearling Sale at Ruidoso Downs, Indication NM made his career debut on March 4 and scored a 1 1/4-length victory in a 4 1/2-furlong maiden special weight race for state-breds.

R.D. Hubbard's Alarm Bell will make his first start from post 6 in the third colts and geldings heat. The homebred Atilla's Storm colt, Alarm Bell prepped for his debut by working 4 furlongs from the gate in :47.00, the fastest of 57 drills at the distance on March 4.

The 10 fastest qualifiers will meet in the $75,000-added colts and geldings division of the Copper Top Futurity final on April 14.

Each of the fillies trials drew nine entries. Cashin The Trash is the 5-2 morning-line choice in the second heat, as the bay daughter of Abajo makes her career debut off of a :48.80 4-furlong work from the gate on March 4.

Cashin The Trash was acquired by Robert Haynsworth and J & SM Inc. for $11,500 at last year's New Mexico-Bred Yearling Sale.

The 10 fastest qualifiers will meet in the $75,000-added fillies division of the Copper Top Futurity final on April 14.
