A full field of 12 is set to go in the $180,000 Rocky Gulch New Mexico Classic Cup Championship, which headlines a rich 12-race card for New Mexico-bred Thoroughbreds and Quarter Horses Oct. 26 at Zia Park.
Trainer Joel Marr won the final three races on the New Mexico Classic Cup program at Zia Park Oct. 28, including the $180,480 Rocky Gulch Championship with On Down the Road.
Cross Chris Run faces Brother Louie again Oct. 28 after the two finished a neck apart in last year's $180,000 Rocky Gulch New Mexico Classic Cup Championship at Zia Park in Hobbs, N.M.
Odds-on choice Glory Be Mine registered her seventh consecutive win when she led gate to wire to take the $151,575 New Mexico Classic Cup Championship Filly Stakes at Zia Park Oct. 31.
Trainer Todd Fincher, who won four races on the New Mexico Cup Championship card last year at Zia Park, seems well-poised to add to his total during the rich program for state breds Oct. 31.
