Community Leader (pictured), a homebred son of the Artax stallion Diabolical racing for J. Kirk and Judy Robison of El Paso, Texas, will make his sophomore season debut in Thursday’s 6-furlong, $100,000 Corralito Steak House Stakes (R) for New Mexico-bred 3-year-olds at Sunland Park.

Community Leader is coming off of a three-length victory in the November 27, 6-furlong New Mexico Classics Juvenile Championship (R) at Zia Park. The chestnut gelding has won six of seven starts — including three stakes — and he has earned $287,107.

Community Leader drew post 7 and will be ridden by Felipe Valdez for trainer Todd Fincher.

Other contenders include Milk It, a homebred son of the Indian Charlie stallion Shame On Charlie owned by R. Dwain Yarbar, MCM Stables LLC, and trainer Greg Green. Milk It has banked $182,067 from three races, and his two wins include a three-quarter length victory in the October 15, $295,000 New Mexico State Fair Thoroughbred Futurity (R) at Albuquerque Downs.
