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.
