Three 400-yard trials on Sunday determined the finalists for the September 24, $100,000-added New Mexico State Fair Derby (RG3) for state-bred 3-year-old Quarter Horses at Albuquerque Downs.

Co-fastest qualifier Sophie Garcia won first trial by a nose from third-fastest qualifier A Super Sonic Boom in :19.462. Justin Joiner trained and Cody Jensen rode the sorrel daughter of Big Daddy Cartel for owner Paul Blanchard of Albuquerque.

Co-fastest qualifier Mr Klee won the third heat by a neck from fourth-fastest qualifier Big Spurs. Trained by Justin Joiner for owners Calder and Candy Ezzell of Roswell, New Mexico, Mr Klee covered the distance in :19.462 under jockey Cody Jensen.

Mr Klee was purchased by the Ezzells for $27,000 at the 2015 Ruidoso Select Yearling Sale. The gelded son of Jesse James Jr has won two of six outs and has banked $8,612.
