Wyatt, a homebred 6-year-old Pro Prado gelding racing for C.P. Hourigan, is one of 10 New Mexico-breds entered in Sunday’s 6 1/2-furlong, $85,000 Johnie L. Jamison Handicap (R) at Sunland Park.

The Johnie L. Jamison is one of two state-bred Thoroughbred stakes scheduled for Sunday at Sunland Park. The other stakes, the 6-furlong, $85,000 New Mexico State Racing Commission Handicap (R), has drawn a field of eight New Mexico-bred distaffers.

Wyatt has won his last four starts, including two stakes. The gelding is coming off of a half-length victory in the 6-furlong, $170,000 New Mexico Cup Sprint Championship (R) at Zia Park on November 1.

Golly Gee is coming off of a half-length win in the November 1, 6-furlong New Mexico Cup Derby Championship (R) and will be seeking his first-ever win against older horses on Sunday.
