Two Dozen State Bred Juveniles Entered in New Mexico Breeders Futurity Trials
RSS Feeds Thursday, April 28, 2016
A total of 24 state-bred 2-year-olds, including the nicely bred gelding KG Miracle, has been entered in Friday’s 350-yard New Mexico Breeders’ Futurity (RG3) trials at SunRay Park.

The 10 fastest qualifiers will meet in the May 15, $50,000-added final.

KG Miracle is a homebred son of the Dean Miracle stallion Hearts Miracle and the winning Mountain Metal mare Purple Ice. Trained by Ken Grisham for owner Shirley Grisham of Albuquerque, the gelding is winless in two outs, but he is a full brother to RG Miracle, the winner of last year’s New Mexico Breeders’ Futurity.

KG Miracle drew post 3 and will be ridden by Jose Luis Enriquez in the second of three trials.

Alan Arreola’s Flash The Force, a sorrel son of champion First Moonflash and the graded stakes placed Chicks A Blazin mare Blazin Force, is the 5-2 morning-line favorite in the first heat. Trained by Jorge Luis Hernandez, the colt made his debut with a fifth-place finish in a 300-yard New Mexican Spring Futurity (RG2) trial at Sunland Park on April 8.

Flash The Force, a full brother to 2014 New Mexico Cup Futurity (RG2) finalist Miss Blazin First and a $17,000 buy at last year’s New Mexico-Bred Yearling Sale at Ruidoso Downs, drew post 7 and will be ridden by Armando Lujan.

In the third trial, Hernandez will send out VMR Rebel, a homebred colt by Dejon owned by Javier Montoya. VMR Rebel will be making his second start off of his fourth-place finish, 3 1/4 lengths behind Big Spurs, in a New Mexican Spring Futurity trial.

VMR Rebel drew post 8 and will be ridden by Armando Lujan.
