RSS Feeds Tuesday, June 05, 2012
A total of 25 New Mexico-bred 2-year-olds have been entered in Friday's 5-furlong Mountain Top Thoroughbred Futurity (R) trials at Ruidoso Downs.

Kiss My Hennessy, a gelding by Roll Hennessy Roll racing for Joe Dee Brooks and Scott Bryant and trained by Todd Fincher, is the 6-5 morning-line favorite in the first of three trials (estimated post time 2:44 p.m. [MDT]). A $19,000 buy at last year's New Mexico-Bred Yearling Sale, Kiss My Hennessy has earned $62,644 from two starts, and he is coming off of a 1 1/2-length victory in the colts and geldings division of the April 14 Copper Top Futurity (R) at Sunland Park.

Recent winners SPK Lanes Heart and Thermal top the second heat (estimated post time 3:36). SPK Lanes Heart, a Devon Lane gelding purchased for $10,000 by Gary W. Hartstack at the 2011 New Mexico-Bred Yearling Sale, broke his maiden with a 5 1/2-length win in a 4 1/2-furlong, $43,000 allowance race at Sunland on April 15. A homebred Attila's Storm gelding owned by R.D. Hubbard, Thermal made his career debut with a neck victory in a May 27, 4 1/2-furlong state-bred maiden special weight sprint at Ruidoso.

Indication NM is the morning-line choice in the third and final heat (estimated post time 4:28). The Atilla's Storm gelding, who was acquired by by owners Robert F. Haynsworth and J & SM Inc. for $16,000 at last year's New Mexico-Bred Yearling Sale, won two races in March at Sunland Park and was a finalist in the colts and geldings division of the Copper Top Futurity.

The $134,657 Mountain Top Thoroughbred Futurity will be run on Saturday, June 23. The Mountain Top Futurity is one of three stakes restricted to New Mexico-bred 2-year-olds at Ruidoso and will be followed by the 5 1/2-furlong, $200,000-est. Rio Grande Senor (R) and Senorita (R) futurities on Zia Festival Day, July 29.
