RSS Feeds Wednesday, December 14, 2016
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. The gelding will be shortening in distance off of his head victory as the 3-2 choice in the 440-yard, $170,000 Namehimastreaker New Mexico Cup Championship (RG1) at Zia Park on October 30.

Klassic Strawfly drew post 4 and will be ridden by Alejandro Medellin.

Other contenders include defending Jess Burner champion Osbaldo and Seeyalateralligator. Osbaldo is trained by Castillo for owner Hubaldo Solis of Peralta, New Mexico. A homebred 7-year-old stallion by Jesse James Jr, Osbaldo has banked $43,786 from six starts this year.

Bonifacio Quiroz will ride Osbaldo from the rail post.

Seeyalateralligator is coming off of a second-place finish to Klassic Strawfly in the New Mexico Cup Championship. Trained by Wes Giles for owners Ezra Lee and Jason Giles, the 4-year-old Winners Version gelding has earned $42,759 from four races this season.

Seeyalateralligator drew post 2 and will be ridden by Salvador Martinez.

The complete lineup, in post position order including jockey and weight assignments and morning-line odds -- Osbaldo (Bonifacio Quiroz, 125), 6-1; Seeyalateralligator (L. Salvador Martinez, 124), 8-1; Major Moonflash (Adrian Ramos, 123), 8-1; Klassic Strawfly (Alejandro Medellin, 125), 3-1; Booyah Bay (Jesse Levario, 123), 15-1; Dungarees Version (Benito Baca, 123), 12-1; Play Misty Foreme (Jose Luis Enriquez, 123), 10-1; Fire Stones (Agustin Silva, 123), 6-1; Cinco Menudos (Alfredo Sigala, 123), 8-1; Justified By Chicks (Esgar Ramirez, 124), 4-1; and Es Meyer (Edgar Martinez, 122), 12-1.
