RSS Feeds Wednesday, May 30, 2012
Rex Hill, a sorrel Jesse James Jr colt racing for Utahns David Hinkins and Ross Hinkins, will break from post 3 in Sunday's 350-yard, $167,700 New Mexico Breeders' Futurity (RG3) for state-bred 2-year-olds at SunRay Park.

Racing from the barn of trainer Carlos Sedillo, Rex Hill has won two of his three starts, including the first of five Breeders' Futurity trials on May 18. The colt has earned $34,300, and his race record includes a 1 1/2-length victory in the 300-yard, $50,500 New Mexican Spring Fling Stakes (R) at Sunland Park on April 7.

Second-fastest qualifier Sandys Jesse has won two consecutive races, including the last Breeders' Futurity trial, and has banked $12,580. A sorrel daughter of Jesse James campaigned by Jose G. Badilla Sr. and trained by Alonso Orozco, Sandys Jesse will be ridden by reigning American Quarter Horse Association champion jockey G.R. Carter Jr. in Sunday's final.

The New Mexico Breeders' Futurity was first run at San Juan Downs in 1985, when Shawn Clark's Say It Simple earned the winner's share of a $26,341 purse. Past winners of the stakes, currently the richest race for any breed at SunRay Park, include Sixy Chamisa (2009) and Osbaldo (2011).

This year's Breeders' Futurity will be the eighth race on SunRay Park's nine-race program. Estimated post time is 3:43 p.m. (MDT).

The complete lineup, in post position order including jockey assignments – Rimen Investment (Jaime Leos), Hurricane Kate (Alonso Rivera), Rex Hill (Ricky Ramirez), Royal Kettle (Adrian Ramos), Sandys Jesse (G.R. Carter Jr.), Jess Rueben James (Isaias Cardenas), Tombstone (Esgar Ramirez), Pjs Gonna Ro (Tony Guymon), Sisters Blazin (Jesse Levario), and Saturday Nite Romeo (Macario Rodriguez).
