RSS Feeds Thursday, October 11, 2012
Call Me A Blazn Chic, a three-time graded stakes winning filly by Chicks A Blazin racing for Javier Marquez's J & M Racing and Farm, drew post 5 in the first of three New Mexico Cup Derby (RG2) trials at Zia Park on Sunday.

Trained by Jaime Dominguez, Call Me A Blazn Chic is coming off of a neck victory as the 13-10 favorite in the 400-yard, $50,000 Pelican Stakes (RG3) for state-bred 3-year-old fillies at The Downs at Albuquerque on August 26. All told, the filly has won four of 12 starts – including last year's $384,000 Zia Futurity (RG2) at Ruidoso Downs and $331,000 New Mexico Cup Futurity (RG2) at Zia Park.

Call Me A Blazn Chic is one of 28 New Mexico-bred 3-year-olds entered in Sunday's trials. Her top competition in the first heat includes Hubaldo Solis' Osbaldo, a homebred gray colt by Jesse James Jr who won graded futurities last season at Sunland Park and SunRay Park.

Fury Of The Storm, a Furyofthewind gelding owned and trained by Dominguez, will break from post 2 in the second heat. Fury Of The Storm has won four consecutive starts, including the 400-yard, $140,000 Zia Derby (RG2) at Ruidoso Downs on July 29, and the 400-yard, $75,000 New Mexico Breeders' Stakes (RG2) at SunRay Park on May 20.

RCJ Major Storm and PK Bay are entered in the third trial. A bay colt by Brookstone Bay owned by Alagar Racing LLC and trained by Melvin Cordova, RCJ Major Storm is coming off of a half-length win in the August 26, 400-yard Hard Twist Stakes (RG3) at Albuquerque. PK Bay will be making his first start since September 23, when he ran second in the 400-yard New Mexico State Fair Breeders' Derby (RG3) at Albuquerque for his owners, David E. Barrett and J & SM Inc.

The 10 fastest qualifiers from Sunday's trials will meet in the 440-yard, $140,000-added New Mexico Cup Derby final on October 28. Past winners of the race include AQHA champion First Moonflash, who won the stakes in 2008.
