A total of 70 New Mexico-bred 2-year-olds have been entered in Friday’s 400-yard Shue Fly Stakes (RG2) trials at Sunland Park.
Debra Laney’s Mitey Moon, a homebred daughter of leading freshman sire First Moonflash, is the 3-1 morning-line favorite in the second of seven trials. The filly has earned $174,018 from six races, and she is coming off of a neck victory in the October 27, $289,000 New Mexico Cup Futurity (RG2) at Zia Park.
Other prominent Shue Fly hopefuls include graded stakes winners Moonifisant and King Of Pop. A colt by Sixes Royal owned by Peter B. Gallegos, Robert D. Sanchez, and Patricia Gonzalez, Moonifisant has banked $156,364 from six outs, and his four wins include a half-length victory in the 300-yard, $231,438 New Mexican Spring Futurity (RG2) at Sunland Park back in April.
King Of Pop is a homebred gelded son of Chickie Cherry Cola campaigned by Verona Vaughn of Edgewood, New Mexico. King Of Pop’s race record includes a head victory in the May 26, 350-yard New Mexico Breeders’ Futurity (RG3) at SunRay Park.
Kaydns Krusader, a multiple graded stakes placed gelding by Sixes Royal, drew post 4 in the fourth heat. The runner-up to eventual All American Futurity (G1) winner Handsome Jack Flash in the July 28, $409,000 Zia Futurity (RG1) at Ruidoso Downs, Kaydns Krusader has earned $133,198 from eight races for his owner, Javier Marquez’s J & M Racing and Farm of Monahans, Texas.
