Yaneth Cabrera’s Klassic Strawfly, a 10-year-old son of Genuine Strawfly trained by Miguel Castillo, will put his five-race win streak on the line in Saturday’s 400-yard, $85,000 Jess Burner Memorial Handicap (RG1) for New Mexico-breds at Sunland Park.

The 3-1 morning-line favorite, Klassic Strawfly has earned $204,890 from seven outs this season, and his six wins include three stakes victories.
