RSS Feeds Thursday, December 06, 2012
Miracle Snow will put his two-race winning streak on the line in Saturday's 400-yard, $85,000 Jess Burner Memorial Handicap (RG1), the first stakes race of the 2012-13 Sunland Park season.

A homebred 8-year-old Dean Miracle gelding racing for Melvin and Mary Neugebauer of Manzanola, Colorado, and trained by Wes Giles, Miracle Snow will be making his first start since October 28, when he scored a neck victory in the 440-yard, $170,000 New Mexico Cup Championship (RG1) at Zia Park. G.R. Carter will ride Miracle Snow from post 10.

Other Jess Burner contenders include Jaime Dominguez's Fury Of The Storm and First Blazin Love, both of whom are 3-year-olds seeking their first stakes wins against older horses. A chestnut colt by the late Chicks A Blazin owned by Dwayne Johnson, Lisa Saumell, and Johnny C. Martinez, First Blazin Love is coming off of a half-length score in the 440-yard, $208,000 New Mexico Cup Derby (G1) at Zia Park on October 28.

Fury Of The Storm ran second, a neck behind Miracle Snow, in the New Mexico Cup Championship. The bay Furyofthewind gelding has earned $260,906 from six starts this season, and his four victories include the 400-yard, $140,000 Zia Derby (RG2) at Ruidoso Downs on July 29, and the 400-yard, $75,000 New Mexico Breeders' Stakes (RG2) at SunRay Park in May.
