Moonifisant Draws Post 6 for New Mexican Spring Futurity
RSS Feeds Friday, April 5, 2013
Fastest qualifier and morning-line favorite Moonifisant will break from post 6 in Sunday's 300-yard, $231,438 New Mexican Spring Futurity (RG2) for state-breds at Sunland Park.

A brown son of Sixes Royal racing for Peter B. Gallegos, Robert D. Sanchez, and J. Patricia Gonzalez, Moonifisant is undefeated in two starts. The colt is trained by Juan M. Gonzalez, who won the 2010 Spring Futurity (RG1) with Peter and Marjorie Gallegos' Streak Of Sixes.

Moonifisant, a half brother to 2009 AQHA champion aged stallion First Moonflash, is coming off of a three-length victory as the 4-5 choice in the last of 10 trials on March 15.

Second-fastest qualifier Woodys Allstar scored a 1 1/2-length win in the fourth trial. The brown filly by the Dash Ta Fame stallion Woodbridge is campaigned by Joe Dee Brooks, Ted Rushing, and Lee Lewis from the barn of Mike Joiner.

The New Mexican Spring Futurity will share Sunland Park's Sunday spotlight with another graded Quarter Horse stakes, the $107,370 Bank of America Sunland Challenge Championship (G2). Melissa Ann Miller's Jess Featureme Quick, the morning-line choice, heads a field of 10 that includes Alonzo and Sylvia Aranda's WDC Wendys Wine, a registered New Mexico-bred who brings a three-race win streak into the 440-yard race.

The Spring Futurity will be the fifth race on Sunland Park's 11-race program. Approximate post time for the race is 2:40 p.m. (MDT).

The complete lineup for the Spring Futurity, in post position order including jockey assignments and morning-line odds – Patrick James (Roy Baldillez), 12-1; Threedeewoodee (Manuel Gutierrez), 6-1; Too Flash For You (Oscar Rincon), 10-1; Queen But A King (Esgar Ramirez), 5-1; Jess Sandy Jr (Larry Gamez), 6-1; Moonifisant (Jaime Leos), 3-1; Woodys Allstar (G.R. Carter Jr.), 4-1; Call Me Blazin (Macario Rodriguez), 8-1; Unseen Version (Ramon Sanchez), 6-1; Spiced Swissle (Francisco Calderon), 15-1.

Past winners of the New Mexican Spring Futurity include PJ Chick In Black, last year's AQHA champion 2-year-old filly. The 300-yard stakes record of :14.82 was set by Osbaldo in 2011.
