RSS Feeds Thursday, October 11, 2012

A total of 63 state-bred 2-year-olds, including two-time stakes winner Gonna Cha Cha, have been entered in Saturday's 400-yard New Mexico Cup Futurity (RG2) trials at Zia Park.

A homebred gelding by Gonna Ro Sham Bo, Gonna Cha Cha has earned $196,172 for his owners, Norma Alvarez, Brenda Alvarez, and Debra Laney. Gonna Cha Cha has won four of five starts, including the 400-yard, $395,028 Zia Futurity (RG1), and the 440-yard, $75,000 All American Juvenile Invitational Stakes, both at Ruidoso Downs.

Gonna Cha Cha is the 9-5 morning-line favorite in the fourth of seven trials. Trained by Juan M. Gonzalez, the gelding will break from post 9 and will be ridden by Cody Wainscott.

Another prominent New Mexico Cup Futurity trial entry, Junior June Bug, is the 9-5 morning-line choice in the sixth heat. A colt by Jesse James Jr racing for Richard K. McGehee from the barn of Jackie Riddle, Junior June Bug has banked $218,278 from six outs, and his three wins include a neck victory in the 350-yard, $306,356 Mountain Top Futurity (R) for state-breds at Ruidoso Downs.

Also entered in the trials are the graded stakes-placed Runin Sixes (second trial, post 3), Averyspecialsouthern (fifth trial, post 3), and The Four Js (seventh trial, post 6).

The 10 fastest qualifiers will meet in the $140,000-added New Mexico Cup Futurity final on Sunday, October 28. Past winners of the race, which first gained graded status in 2007 for its third running, include Streak Of Sixes and Call Me A Blazn Chic.
