A full field of 10 state-bred Quarter Horses have been entered in Sunday's 440-yard, $50,000 New Mexico Breeders' Quarter Horse Championship (RG3), as the curtain closes on The Downs at Albuquerque's 54-day meet.

Visible Injun, a homebred 3-year-old Invisible Injun colt racing for Verona Vaughn of Edgewood, has won two of his three starts at the Albuquerque meet, including the September 25, 400-yard New Mexico State Fair Breeders' Derby (RG3). Visible Injun drew post 1 and will be ridden by Macario Rodriguez, who has ridden the gelding in all of his Albuquerque starts.

Another contender, Melvin and Mary Neugebauer's Miracle Snow, drew post 3. The homebred 7-year-old gelding by Dean Miracle has earned $69,975 from seven starts this season, and he is coming off of a third-place finish to Down With You in the 440-yard, $170,000 New Mexico Cup Quarter Horse Championship (RG1) at Zia Park on October 30.
