The final weekend of Sunland Park's 77-day meet will feature three stakes races for New Mexico-bred Thoroughbreds and Quarter Horses.

All three state-bred stakes – two for Thoroughbreds and one for Quarter Horses – will be contested on Saturday. Alarm Bell, a homebred gelding by the Forest Wildcat stallion Attila's Storm racing for R.D. Hubbard, is the morning-line favorite for the colts and geldings division of the 4 1/2-furlong, $120,989 Copper Top Futurity (R). Alarm Bell made his career debut with a 1 1/2-length victory as the even-money choice in his trial heat on March 20.

Another contender, the Attila's Storm gelding Indication N M, is unbeaten in two starts for his owners, Robert F. Haynsworth and J & SM Inc. Indication N M is coming off of a half-length score as the favorite in his Copper Top trial.

All qualifiers will carry 120 pounds.
