Friday’s 400-yard New Mexico State Fair Futurity (RG3) trials at Albuquerque Downs have drawn a total of 105 state-bred 2-year-olds.

Codex, a gelded son of Big Daddy Cartel and 2015 AQHA champion 3-year-old filly Astica, drew post 5 and will be ridden by Adrian Ramos for owner Uno Mas and trainer Wes Giles in the 10th of 11 trials. A $160,000 purchase at last year’s Ruidoso Select Yearling Sale, Codex has earned $37,641 from four starts, and he is coming off of a fourth-place finish, two lengths behind winner KJ Daddys Money, in the August 7, $380,000 Zia Futurity (RG1) at Ruidoso Downs.

JM Jazzlynn, a homebred stakes-placed daughter of the Walk Thru Fire stallion JM Specialwynn, drew post 8 and will be ridden by Bryan Candanosa for trainer Tony Sedillo in the sixth heat. JM Jazzlynn is coming off of a second-place finish, a half of a length behind winner Gemologist, in the August 7, $50,000 Zia Juvenile Stakes (R) at Ruidoso Downs.

Vista Del Sol Inc’s Jess Stevie has won both of his starts at Albuquerque Downs this season, including a 400-yard, $41,800 open-condition allowance dash for New Mexico-bred 2-year-olds on August 20. Marco Flores trains the Jess A Chicks gelding, who was an $8,500 yearling purchase at last year’s New Mexico-Bred Sale.

Jess Stevie drew post 4 and will be ridden by Luis Flores-Garcia in the ninth trial.

The 10 fastest qualifiers will meet in the September 25, $250,000-added New Mexico State Fair Futurity final.
