RSS Feeds Monday, May 14, 2012
Gary L. Thompson's Tombstone, a homebred gelding by the Mr Jess Perry stallion Get Down Perry, is one of 38 state-bred 2-year-olds entered in Friday's New Mexico Breeders' Futurity (RG3) trials at SunRay Park.

Tombstone is the 5-2 morning-line favorite in the third of four 350-yard trial heats. The gelding has won two of three starts and has earned $43,622. He sustained his first loss on April 8, when he finished third, two lengths behind winner PJ Chick In Black, in the 300-yard, $251,359 New Mexican Spring Futurity (RG2) at Sunland Park.

Other prominent 2-year-olds entered in Friday's trials include Rex Hill, a colt by Jesse James Jr racing for Utahns David Hinkins and Ross Hinkins and winner of the April 7, $50,500 New Mexican Spring Fling Stakes (R) at Sunland; and Alonso Orozco's Sandys Jesse, a three-quarter length maiden winner at SunRay Park on April 20.

The New Mexico Breeders' Futurity was first run in 1985, when Shawn Clark's Say It Simple earned the winner's share of a $26,341 purse. The race first earned graded status in 2001. Its past winners include Wagons Maiden (2001), A Streak Regard ('07), Sixy Chamisa ('09), and Osbaldo ('11).

The 10 fastest qualifiers from Friday's trials will meet in the $85,000-added New Mexico Breeders' Futurity final on Sunday, June 3.
