Vintage Bourdeaux (pictured), a son of Eye Am King owned by the Tungsten Racing Partnership, is one of 31 state-bred sophomores entered in Sunday’s 400-yard New Mexico Classics Derby (RG2) trials at Zia Park.

A $33,000 yearling purchase at the 2021 New Mexico-Bred Sale at Ruidoso Downs, Vintage Bourdeaux is trained by Marco A. Flores. The sorrel gelding is coming off of an Albuquerque Downs meet during which he won two of three races, including the 400-yard, $435,000 New Mexico State Fair Derby (RG3) on October 15.

Vintage Bourdeaux drew post 8 and will be ridden by Sergio Becerra Jr. in the first of four trials.

Woodys Storm, a daughter of the Dash Ta Fame stallion Woodbridge racing for Kenia Pinela Marioni, drew post 3 and will be ridden by Luis Martinez for trainer Jorge A. Morales-Flores in the third heat. The sorrel filly has earned $109,120 from five outs this season, and her three wins include a neck victory at odds of 13-1 in the April 1, $100,000 New Mexico Horse Breeders’ Association Stakes (RG2) at Sunland Park.

The 10 fastest qualifiers from Sunday’s trials will meet in the November 26, $170,000 New Mexico Classics Derby final.
