RSS Feeds Thursday, December 12, 2013
Coronas Boy, the upset winner of the October 27 New Mexico Cup 870 Championship (R) at Zia Park, will break from post 5 in Saturday’s 870-yard, $85,000 Challenger Six Handicap (R) for state-bred Quarter Horses and Thoroughbreds at Sunland Park.

A 4-year-old gelding by Mr Houston racing for Victor M. Diaz and trained by Hermenegildo “Poppy” Aldavaz, Coronas Boy outran his 28-1 odds to score a 6 3/4-length victory over multiple stakes winner Rollickin Red in the New Mexico Cup 870 Championship. Coronas Boy has won four of 15 starts, including the 2012 Getaway Stakes at Sunland, and he has earned $165,643.

Francisco Giles will ride Coronas Boy on Saturday.
