Graded stakes winners Rex Hill, Saturday Nite Romeo, and Gonna Cha Cha are among the 47 New Mexico-bred 2-year-olds entered in Friday's 400-yard Shue Fly Stakes (RG2) trials at Sunland Park.

Rex Hill has won four of eight outs and has banked $141,220 for his owners, brothers David Hinkins and Ross Hinkins of Roosevelt, Utah. The sorrel colt by Jesse James Jr scored a neck victory as the fastest qualifier in the June 3, $168,000 New Mexico Breeders' Futurity (RG3) at SunRay Park.

Saturday Nite Romeo broke his maiden with a half-length win in the September 22, 400-yard New Mexico State Fair Senor Futurity (RG3) at The Downs at Albuquerque. The homebred colt by Dash Ta Fame has earned $49,100 from six races for his owner, Verona G. Vaughn of Edgewood, New Mexico.
