A dozen New Mexico-bred Thoroughbreds, headed by morning-line favorite Let Him Be (pictured), are entered in Friday’s 6 1/2-furlong, $100,000 Jamison Memorial Handicap (R) at Sunland Park.

Let Him Be is a 4-year-old son of the Afleet Alex stallion Sway Away trained by Joel Marr for owner V Bar V Racing LLC. The bay gelding is coming off of a two-length victory in a 6-furlong, $52,000 open-condition allowance race for New Mexico-breds on January 18, and he won two stakes during his sophomore campaign, including the 6-furlong, $150,000 New Mexico Classics Derby Championship (R) at Zia Park.

Let Him Be drew post 11 and will be ridden by Miguel Fuentes Jr.

Other contenders include Strawberry Whisky, a 7-year-old son of the Sunday Silence stallion Fusaichi Zenon (JPN) owned and trained by Celio Trujillo Jr. The dark bay or brown gelding ended his 2023 campaign with a wire-to-wire, 1 3/4-length win in the November 27, 6-furlong New Mexico Classics Sprint Championship (R) at Zia Park.

Strawberry Whisky drew post 7 and will be ridden by Aldo Arboleda.
