Mitey Moon, a homebred filly by champion First Moonflash racing for Debra Jean Laney, drew post 4 for Saturday's 350-yard, $356,980 Mountain Top Quarter Horse Futurity (R) for New Mexico-bred 2-year-olds at Ruidoso Downs.

Second-fastest qualifier Heza Wild Dragon will be ridden by Esgar Ramirez from post 3. Owned and trained by Kristopher R. Cordova, the sorrel gelding by Genuine Strawfly made his debut with a three-quarter length win at odds of 9-1 in the last Mountain Top trial.

Other Mountain Top contenders include Heysol Howlett's Wager On Moonflash, a brown First Moonflash colt trained by Jaime Dominguez coming off of a trial victory; and Gary L. Thompson's Threedeewoodee, a gelding by Woodbridge who has won two of three starts and ran second, a half of a length behind winner Moonifisant, in the April 7, $231,438 New Mexican Spring Futurity (RG2) at Sunland Park.

The Mountain Top Quarter Horse Futurity will be the ninth race on Ruidoso Downs' 10-race program. Approximate post time is 4:28 p.m (MDT).
