RSS Feeds Thursday, April 10, 2014
David G. Valdez’s One Lethal Blaze is the 5-2 morning-line favorite in Saturday’s 350-yard, $85,000 Sunburst Stakes (R) for New Mexico-bred 3-year-old fillies at Sunland Park.

A sorrel daughter of Chicks A Blazin trained by Gene L. Burden, One Lethal Blaze is coming off of a head victory as the 6-5 choice in a 400-yard, $36,000 open-condition allowance for state-bred 3-year-old fillies on February 18. The filly was a finalist in the January 4, 400-yard Shue Fly Stakes (RG2) at Sunland.

Sergio Becerra Jr. will ride One Lethal Blaze from post 9 in the Sunburst.

Other Sunburst contenders include MJ Farms’ White Wine Glass, a homebred daughter of the Swiss Yodeler (TB) stallion Swissle Stick (TB) trained by Wes Giles. White Wine Glass has won two of four starts, including a Shue Fly Stakes trial on December 13, and she has earned $22,400.

Larry Gamez has been named to ride White Wine Glass from post 5 on Saturday.

Cordova Racing LLC”s Express In, a graded stakes winning filly by Southern Corona, drew post 10 and will be ridden by Esgar Ramirez. The filly, who is trained by Melvin Cordova, scored a one-length victory in last year’s 400-yard, $62,067 New Mexico State Fair Senorita Futurity (RG3) at The Downs at Albuquerque.
