Joaquin Gutierrez’s Who U Daddy is one of 60 state-bred 2-year-old Quarter Horses entered in Friday’s 350-yard New Mexico Breeders’ Futurity (RG3) trials at SunRay Park.

A $15,500 yearling purchase at last year’s New Mexico-Bred Sale at Ruidoso Downs, Who U Daddy is a gelded son of Big Daddy Cartel trained by Hector Chavez. Who U Daddy has earned $30,941 from two starts at Sunland Park, and his record includes a fourth-place finish, 1 1/2 lengths behind winner Crispyn, in the April 1, $366,000 New Mexican Spring Futurity (RG2).

Who U Daddy drew the rail post and will be ridden by Manuel Gutierrez in the last of six trials.

Two other Spring Futurity finalists — Jess Have One More and Play Again — are entered in Friday’s trials, and both horses drew into the first heat. Jess Have One More is campaigned by CHR Racing from the barn of trainer Jesus Rondan Jr., and the Jesse James Jr gelding was a $50,000 purchase at last year’s Ruidoso Select Sale.

Jess Have One More is coming off of a fifth-place finish, 1 3/4 lengths behind Crispyn, in the Spring Futurity. The gelding drew post 3 and will be ridden by Luis Martinez.

Play Again is a sorrel daughter of the Walk Thru Fire stallion Gronkowski trained by Eric Valenzuela for owners Jaime Cervantes, Heysol Howlet, and Saul Medina. The filly will be stretching out in distance off of her seventh-place run, 2 1/2 lengths behind Crispyn, in the Spring Futurity.

Play Again drew post 4 and will be ridden by Emilio Tapia.

The 10 fastest qualifiers from Friday’s trials will meet in the May 20, $120,000-added New Mexico Breeders’ Futurity final.
