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.

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.
