New Mexico-bred Thoroughbreds and Quarter Horses will be in the spotlight at Sunland Park Racetrack on Sunday, as the track presents the 400-yard, $85,000 Lou Wooten and Sydney Valentini Handicap (RG2) for Quarter Horses and the 1-mile, $85,000 Enchantress Stakes (R) for 2-year-old Thoroughbred fillies.

The Lou Wooten and Sydney Valentini has drawn eight fillies and mares, including morning-line favorite and multiple graded stakes winner Call Me A Blazn Chic. A 3-year-old filly by the late Chicks A Blazin racing for Javier Marquez's J & M Racing and Farm at Monahans, Texas, Call Me A Blazn Chic has earned $541,825 from 14 starts, and her four career stakes victories include the November 24, $140,000 New Mexico Fillies & Mares Championship (RG1) at Zia Park, and the August 26, $50,000 Pelican Stakes (RG3) at The Downs at Albuquerque.

Call Me A Blazn Chic is trained by Jaime Dominguez. The filly will be ridden by Esgar Ramirez from post 2 on Sunday.

Other contenders in the stakes include Sierra Dawn Moseley's Wonwabbitwon, a 5-year-old mare by Rabbits Rainbow who ran second, a neck behind Call Me A Blazn Chic in the New Mexico Fillies & Mares Championship; and Edilberto Estrada's Little Bit Southern, a 5-year-old daughter of Southern Corona whose two wins in six outs this season include the April 29, $85,000 Four Corners Senora Stakes (RG2) at SunRay Park.

The Lou Wooten and Sydney Valentini Handicap will be contested as the fourth race on Sunland Park's 11-race program. The complete lineup, in post position order including jockey and weight assignments and morning-line odds – Gotloveifyouwantit (Macario Rodriguez, 122), 6-1; Call Me A Blazn Chic (Esgar Ramirez, 125), 8-5; Little Bit Southern (Salvador Martinez, 124), 5-1; Angelina Fame (Felipe Garcia-Luna, 122), 12-1; Wonwabbitwon (Alejandro Medellin, 125), 5-2; Asian Brook (Jesse Levario, 122), 10-1; Snow Regard (Jaime Leos, 122), 10-1; and Dorothys Version (Kelsi Purcell, 120), 12-1.

Sunday's Enchantress Stakes has attracted a full field of 10 New Mexico-bred 2-year-old fillies. Morning-line favorite Back Seat Roll, a homebred daughter of Roll Hennessy Roll trained by Henry Dominguez, has won three of five starts and has earned $156,689 for her owners, J. Kirk and Judy Robison of El Paso, Texas.

Back Seat Roll has won three consecutive starts, including the October 28, $140,600 New Mexico Cup Juvenile Fillies Stakes (R) at Zia Park, and the July 29, $159,744 Rio Grande Senorita Futurity (R) at Ruidoso Downs. The filly drew post 5 and will be ridden by Enrique Gomez on Sunday.

Back Seat Roll's nine opponents include Desertsmagic, a chestnut filly by Desert God owned by Dale Taylor and Lee Lewis who ran third in both the New Mexico Cup Juvenile Fillies Stakes and Rio Grande Senorita Futurity; and Kasha Roo, a homebred daughter of the Unbridled Song stallion Elijah's Song who is coming off of a wire-to-wire, five-length victory against maiden company for her owners, Maurcenia Cross and Agnes Taylor.
