RSS Feeds Thursday, April 7, 2016
A total of 61 state-bred 2-year-olds, 52 of which will be making their career debuts, has been entered in Friday’s 300-yard New Mexican Spring Futurity (RG2) trials at Sunland Park.

Jess Try N Catch Me, the lone winner entered in the trials, is a homebred daughter of Jesse James Jr racing for Jim Laird, Clyde Woerner, Jose R. Espinosa, and Jill Giles from the barn of trainer Jason Giles. The filly made her debut with a half-length victory in a 300-yard, $20,850 maiden-special-weight dash for state-breds on March 18.

Jess Try N Catch Me will be ridden by Adrian Ramos from post 2 in the last of seven trials.

Other noteworthy 2-year-olds entered in the New Mexican Spring Futurity trials include Joe Dee Brooks’ Daddys Allstar, a gray filly by Big Daddy Cartel trained by Justin Joiner. A $30,000 buy at last year’s New Mexico-Bred Yearling Sale at Ruidoso Downs, Daddys Allstar is a half sister to 2014 Shue Fly Stakes (RG2) winner Woodys Allstar, and she is coming off of a second-place finish to Jess Try N Catch Me as the even-money choice. The filly drew post 8 and will be ridden by Salvador Martinez in the fifth heat.

Giles will also send out Twerk It Out, the 3-1 morning-line choice in the second trial. A daughter of Winners Version and 2008 West Texas Futurity (G1) finalist Reacorona, the filly races for Laird, Espinosa, and Ezra Lee, and she prepped for her debut with a 220-yard work in :11.80, the fastest of 26 drills at the distance on March 25. Twerk It Out will be ridden by Esgar Ramirez from post 9.

Twerk It Out’s eight opponents include first-time starter Jess Blazin Queen. A homebred gray filly by Jesse James Jr trained by Miguel Castillo for owner Hubaldo Solis of Peralta, New Mexico, Jess Blazin Queen is a full sister to mutliple graded stakes winner Osbaldo. The filly drew the rail post and will be ridden by Felipe Garcia-Luna.

The New Mexican Spring Futurity trials were originally scheduled to be run in March. The 10 fastest qualifiers will meet in the $140,000-added final on May 1.
