Derrick W. Jenkins’ Corrina Corrina (pictured), a multiple stakes winning homebred daughter of Mr. Trieste, will make the second start of her 5-year-old season in Friday’s 6-furlong, $100,000 La Coneja Stakes (R) for New Mexico-bred fillies and mares at Sunland Park.

Corrina Corrina will be stretching out in distance off of her one-length victory as the odds-on favorite in the January 5, 5 1/2-furlong New Mexico State Racing Commission Handicap (R). The mare has won 12 of 24 starts — including four of seven at Sunland Park — and she has earned $813,870.

Corrina Corrina drew the rail post and will be ridden by Tracy Hebert for trainer Gary Cross. The mare’s seven opponents include Bella Dona, a homebred 5-year-old Attila’s Storm mare trained by Simon Buechler for owners Robert M. Driggers, Del Rae Driggers, and Ben Lee Ivey. Bella Dona is coming off of a fourth-place finish, 4 1/4 lengths behind Corrina Corrina, in the New Mexico State Racing Commission Handicap. However, she has banked $863,918 and has won 11 stakes from 18 outs, and she ended her 4-year-old season with a wire-to-wire, 4 1/2-length victory in the November 27, 6-furlong New Mexico Classics Distaff Sprint Championship (R) at Zia Park.

Bella Dona drew post 3 and will be ridden by Christian Ramos.
