On Down The Road will put his three-race win streak on the line in Sunday's $85,000 New Mexico State University Handicap (R) for state-breds at Sunland Park.

A 5-year-old Desert God gelding racing for Lisa M. Rehburg of Mountain Center, California, and trained by Joel Marr, On Down The Road is coming off of a three-quarter length victory as the 2-1 favorite in the 1 1/16-mile, $85,000 Albert Dominguez Memorial Handicap (R) at Sunland on December 30. The gelding's streak includes a 1 3/4-length win in the 1-mile, $180,000 Rocky Gulch New Mexico Cup Classic (R) at Zia Park in October.

Carlos Madeira will ride On Down The Road from post 7 on Sunday. His nine opponents include Michael C. Stinson's Attitude E Racer, Sam and Latane Stevens' That's Who, and Stable HMA's Nuggets Please.

Marr also trains both Attitude E Racer and That's Who. A 5-year-old Desert God gelding, Attitude E Racer ran second to On Down The Road in the Albert Dominguez. All told, Attitude E Racer has won four of 18 races and has earned $297,874, and his race record includes a 1 1/2-length victory at odds of 23-1 in the October 28, $140,000 New Mexico Cup Sprint Championship (R) at Zia Park.
