Suenos Dineros, the fastest qualifier and one of three finalists prepped by trainer Shae Cox, won a six-horse blanket finish to capture Saturday's West Texas Futurity (G2) at Sunland Park.

Racing for Victor Lozano, Suenos Dineros covered 300 yards in :15.290 under jockey Jose Luis Enriquez, and his margin of victory was a neck from second-fastest qualifier and 6-1 third choice Mountain Holme. The gelded son of the First Down Dash stallion Bodacious Dash earned the $108,163 winner's share of the $230,132 purse while posting his second win in as many outs.

Suenos Dineros made his debut with a three-quarter length victory in the fourth of nine trials on March 24. The gelding was bred in Texas by Eugene Therwanger, and his dam, Tres Suenos, is a 7-year-old daughter of champion Tres Seis.

Sent to post as the 8-5 favorite in the full field of 10 juveniles, Suenos Dineros returned a $5.20 win mutuel. Mountain Holme completed a $2 exacta payoff of $29.60.

Less than a half of a length seperated the first six finishers.

Jm Katlyn, Phantom Fury, Rosicky, final Down, Eagles Tenaya, Famous Corona Miss, Presteejus, and Mr Perrys Tres Seis completed the order of finish.
