A field of seven New Mexico-bred 2-year-olds, headed by stakes winner and morning-line favorite Dandy Don Who, has been entered in Tuesday's 4 1/2-furlong, $65,000 Totah Stakes (R) at SunRay Park.
A homebred chestnut gelding by Quinton's Gold racing for Sam E. Stevens and Sammy L. Stevens of Lamesa, Texas, Dandy Don Who will be making his first start since April 13, when he scored a three-quarter length victory in the colts and geldings division of the 4 1/2-furlong, $95,126 Copper Top Futurity (R) at Sunland Park.
Dandy Don Who is undefeated in two outs and he has earned $52,663. Aldo Arboleda will ride the gelding from post 7 in the Totah.
Dandy Don Who's six opponents include Todd White's Fonzerelli. A homebred Attila's Storm gelding, Fonzerelli is winless in two starts, but he is coming off of a third-place finish in the Copper Top.
The Totah Stakes will be run as the ninth race on SunRay Park's 10-race program. Estimated post time is 4:07 p.m.
