Eight New Mexico-bred Quarter Horses, headed by Byron Woodard’s No Mires A La Luna (pictured, orange cap), are entered in Saturday’s 400-yard, $50,000 Jess Burner Stakes (R) at Ruidoso Downs.

No Mires A La Luna is coming off of a half-length victory at odds of 11-1 in the 400-yard, $40,000 Zia Handicap (RG2) on July 31. The homebred 5-year-old First Moonflash gelding drew post 3 and will be ridden by Lucas Constantin for trainer Marc Jungers.

Other contenders include Rex Wells’ Colby James and Antonio D. Gomez’s Diamond And A Half.
