'Blazn Chic' in F&M Championship

Consistent Call Me A Blazn Chic looks for a victory against older horses in the New Mexico Fillies and Mares Championship.

November 21, 2012

J and M Racing and Farm’s 3-year-old Call Me A Blazn Chic is positioned for her third-straight win and her first victory against older horses in the $140,000 New Mexico Fillies and Mares Championship (RG1) for New Mexico-breds on Saturday at Zia Park.

Call Me A Blazn Chic (Chicks A Blazin-Willie Call Me by Calyx) was a premier state-bred juvenile in 2011 with wins in the Zia Futurity (RG1) and the New Mexico Classic Futurity (RG2) during a season in which she banked $359,839. She has come back this year to earn another $82,286.

The Jaime Dominguez-trained filly has performed well at Zia Park with two wins and a second-place finish from three starts while earning $165,809 at the Hobbs track.

Call Me A Blazn Chic is on a hot streak reminiscent of her juvenile season. She was a close third in the Tommy “Duke” Smith Stakes (RG2) at SunRay Park and then won the Pelican Stakes (RG3) at The Downs at Albuquerque and was a non-qualifying winner of New Mexico Classic Cup Derby trial at 1-2 odds after a slow start.

KH Logax Inc.’s homebred Snow Regard (Chicks Regard-Sha Hooy Hooy by Major Rime) looks to return to form when she tries for her first win since taking last year’s New Mexico Fillies and Mares Championship. Since that win at 28-1 odds, she has raced to second-place finishes in the Lou Wooten Handicap (RG1) at Sunland Park and the Jim Drake Stakes (R) at SunRay Park.

Snow Regard is trying to rebound after a pair of off-the-board performances in optional-claiming for trainer Juan Gonzalez.

Edilberto Estrada’s Little Bit Southern (Southern Corona-Averys Little Bit by Streakin La Jolla) may be ready to move forward in the New Mexico Fillies and Mares Championship. She is making the second start off a layoff and has the class with wins in the Lou Wooten Handicap and the Four Corners Senorita Stakes, her start before the layoff back in April. Trainer Johnny Ruiz brought her back in the Lubbock Stakes (G3) against open mares and she was a non-threatening sixth against the stronger competition.
