RSS Feeds Monday, September 03, 2012
Rex Hill, a two-time stakes winner this season, is one of 39 state-bred colts and geldings entered in Friday's New Mexico State Fair Senor Futurity (RG3) trials at The Downs at Albuquerque.

A sorrel colt by Jesse James Jr campaigned by brothers David and Ross Hinkins from the barn of trainer Carlos Sedillo, Rex Hill is coming off of a sixth-place finish as the 19-10 favorite in the 400-yard, $395,000 Zia Futurity (RG1) for New Mexico-breds at Ruidoso Downs on July 29. Rex Hill has earned $134,970 from six starts, and his four wins include the 350-yard, $168,000 New Mexico Breeders' Futurity (RG2) at SunRay Park on June 3, and the 300-yard, $50,000 New Mexican Spring Fling Stakes (R) at Sunland Park on April 7.

Rex Hill drew post 2 in the third of four trials and will be ridden by Esgar Ramirez.

Gary L. Thompson's Tombstone, a homebred gelding by the Mr Jess Perry stallion Get Down Perry, drew post 10 in the second heat. Tombstone has won four of seven races and has banked $102,610, and his race record includes a second-place finish to Rex Hill in the New Mexico Breeders' Futurity. The gelding also ran third, two lengths behind PJ Chick In Black, in the April 8, $251,000 New Mexican Spring Futurity (RG2) at Sunland Park.

One of Tombstone's opponents in the second trial, Currie J. Maben's Jess Reuben James, ran third in the New Mexico Breeders' Futurity. A maiden, the homebred Jesse James Jr gelding has earned $19,947 from three races.

The 10 fastest qualifiers from Friday's trials will meet in the 400-yard, $50,000 New Mexico State Fair Senor Futurity final on September 22. Past winners of the final include AQHA champions First Moonflash (2007) and Now I Know ('95).
