March 19, 2018
Recent maiden winners Coco Jess Perry and CD Rowdy James are among the 100 2-year-olds entered in Friday’s 300-yard West Texas Futurity (G2) trials at Sunland Park.
A sorrel son of Mr Jess Perry owned by Oscar Vasquez Arenivar, Coco Jess Perry made his career debut with a wire-to-wire, three-quarter length victory in a 300-yard maiden-special-weight dash at Sunland Park on March 2. The gelding was a $23,000 purchase at last year’s Ruidoso Select Yearling Sale, and he is out of Cocopata, a graded stakes winning daughter of Walk Thru Fire.
Coco Jess Perry drew post 2 and will be ridden by Raul Herrera for trainer Jose Gonzalez Sr. in the first of 10 trials.<p>
CD Rowdy James races for German Amaya from the barn of trainer Juan M. Esquivel. A bay son of Ivory James, the colt is coming off of a wire-to-wire, half-length win in a 300-yard maiden-special-weight race on March 2.
CD Rowdy James drew post 4 and will be ridden by Jose Enrique Ortiz in the second heat.
The 10 fastest qualifiers will meet in the April 14, $100,000-added West Texas Futurity final.
