My Mirage Returns in New Mexico State Fair Thoroughbred Futurity Trials
RSS Feeds Friday, September 9, 2016
Bauer Farm’s My Mirage, a stakes-placed Diabolical colt trained by Dick “Flaco” Cappellucci, is one of 16 state-bred juveniles entered in Saturday’s 6-furlong New Mexico State Fair Thoroughbred Futurity (R) trials at Albuquerque Downs.

My Mirage will be making his first start since May 3, when the homebred colt ran second, 2 1/2 lengths behind winner Ignored, in the 4 1/2-furlong Copper Top Futurity (R) at Sunland Park. My Mirage drew post 7 and will be ridden by Ry Eikleberry in the second of two trials.

My Mirage’s seven opponents in the second heat include a pair of recent Albuquerque Downs maiden winners, Told You So and Indian H Who. A homebred gelding by the xxx stallion Excessive Passion owned by Dr. Miguel Gallegos’ Gallegos del Norte Racing of Albuquerque, Told You So made his debut with a clear six-length victory in a 5-furlong maiden special weight race on July 24.

Told You So drew post 5 and will be ridden by Elvin Gonzalez for trainer Jose R. Gonzalez Jr.

Indian H Who is trained by Joel Marr for owners Sam Stevens and Sammy Stevens of Lamesa, Texas. A homebred colt by Indian Firewater, Indian H Who scored a 4 1/2 length win in a 5 1/2-furlong maiden special weight dash on August 17. Glen Murphy will ride the colt from post 6.

The first six finishers from each trial will meet in the September 25, $200,000-est. New Mexico State Fair Thoroughbred Futurity final.
