A total of 35 state-bred 2-year-olds has been entered in Friday's 350-yard New Mexico Breeders' Futurity (RG3) trials at SunRay Park.
Call Me Blazin, a finalist in the April 7, $231,438 New Mexican Spring Futurity (RG2) at Sunland Park, drew post 8 in the last of four trials. A brown daughter of the late Chicks A Blazin racing for Ruben and Samantha Leyba, Call Me Blazin broke her maiden with a three-quarter length victory in her career debut, a 300-yard Spring Futurity trial on March 15. Macario Rodriguez will once again ride the filly on Friday.
The second Breeders' Futurity trial heat will be topped by a pair of recent maiden winnes, First Place Moonfast and Posies K Won. A gray gelding by champion First Moonflash owned by Alberto R. Montoya, First Place Moonfast is coming off of a one-length win against open maiden company on April 26, while Posies K Won, a homebred gelding by champion Ketel Won, broke his maiden with a half-length victory against New Mexico-breds on April 19 for owners David Bloomer and Leighann Kovac.
Gary L. Thompson's Cashmere is the morning-line favorite in the third heat. Making her second career start on April 21 at SunRay Park, the bay filly by Chicks A Blazin scored a half-length win going 350 yards against New Mexico-bred maidens.
The New Mexico Breeders' Futurity began its history at San Juan Downs in 1985, when Shawn Clark's Say It Simple earned the winner's share of a $26,341 purse. Past winners include A Streak Regard (2007), stakes-record holder Sixy Chamisa ('09), Osbaldo ('11), and Rex Hill ('12).
The 10 fastest qualifiers from Friday's trials will meet in the $150,000-est. New Mexico Breeders' Futurity final on May 26.
