A total of 119 New Mexico-bred juveniles, headed by graded stakes winners Jesses Wish, Pick Your Pour, and Major Game, are entered in Friday’s 400-yard Zia Futurity (RG1) trials at Ruidoso Downs.

The 10 fastest qualifiers from Friday’s 12 trials will meet in the August 7, $375,000-est. Zia Futurity final.

Jesses Wish (pictured) is a gelded son of Jesse James Jr trained by James Gonzales II for owners Javier M. Chavez and Heysol Howlet. A $50,000 yearling purchase at last year’s New Mexico-Bred Sale at Ruidoso Downs, Jesses Wish has earned $153,665 from three races, and his two wins include a neck victory in the April 3, $313,000 New Mexican Spring Futurity (RG2) at Sunland Park.

Jesses Wish drew post 4 and will be ridden by Mario Delgado in the second trial.

Pick Your Pour will be stretching out in distance off of a two-length victory in the June 19, 350-yard Mountain Top Futurity (RG2) at Ruidoso Downs. A $25,000 purchase at last year’s Ruidoso Select Yearling Sale, the Jesse James Jr gelding races for Orlando Granillo, Asucena Mendoza, and Rene Mendoza from the barn of trainer James Gonzales II.

Pick Your Pour drew post 4 and will be ridden by Mario Delgado in the 11th heat. The gelding’s nine opponents in the 11th trial include Major Game, a Gronkowski colt trained by Eric Valenzuela for owners Jaime Perez, Andres Estrada, and J. Santos Espinoza. Major Game has won three of four starts, including the May 22, 350-yard New Mexico Breeders’ Futurity (RG3) at SunRay Park, and he has banked $115,073.

Major Game drew post 10 and will be ridden by Sergio Becerra Jr.

Other prominent state-bred 2-year-olds entered in the Zia Futurity include Ricardo Ramirez’s Nineteen Crimes, a Big Daddy Cartel gelding trained by Rigoberto Guillen. Nineteen Crimes will be making his first start since April 22, when he scored a half-length victory as the fastest qualifier in the 300-yard, $97,000 Desert Classic Futurity (R) at Turf Paradise.

Nineteen Crimes drew post 9 and will be ridden by Emilio Tapia in the seventh trial.
