RSS Feeds Tuesday, May 29, 2012

Richard K. McGehee's Junior June Bug is one of 80 New Mexico-bred 2-year-olds entered in Friday's Mountain Top Futurity (R) trials at Ruidoso Downs.

A sorrel colt by the Mr Jess Perry stallion Jesse James Jr, Junior June Bug will be making his first start since April 8, when he ran second to eventual Ruidoso Futurity (G1) qualifier PJ Chick In Black in the 300-yard, $251,359 New Mexican Spring Futurity (RG2) at Sunland Park.

Junior June Bug is trained by Jackie Riddle. The colt will break from post 2 in the first of eight 350-yard trials.

Coronas Hot Pink, a filly by Corona Caliente racing for J. Patricia Gonzalez and Susan A. Kirker from the barn of Juan M. Gonzalez, drew post 3 in the seventh trial. A maiden, Coronas Hot Pink is coming off of a second-place finish to Rex Hill in the April 7, $50,000 New Mexican Spring Fling Stakes (R) at Sunland.

Other prominent Mountain Top Futurity trial entries include SMS Racing LLC's Famous Jesse, a sorrel colt by Jesse James Jr who ran fifth, two lengths behind PJ Chick In Black, in the New Mexican Spring Futurity. Famous Jesse broke his maiden with a three-quarter length victory in a Spring Futurity trial on March 16.
