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 and Gonna Cha Cha both drew into the first heat. A homebred gelding by Gonna Ro Sham Bo racing for Norma Alvarez, Brenda Alvarez, and Debra Laney, Gonna Cha Cha is the 2-1 morning-line favorite in the first trial. The gelding has earned $225,730 from seven races, and his five wins include the 400-yard, $395,000 Zia Futurity (RG2) at Ruidoso Downs on July 29, and the 440-yard, $75,000 All American Juvenile Invitational Stakes at Ruidoso on September 3.

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.
