HOBBS, NM—NOVEMBER 26, 2023–Chicka Boom Babe was awarded the win in Sunday's $298,910 New Mexico Classic Futurity(RG2) at Zia Park after fastest qualifier and post time favorite Drest For Success was disqualified from first and placed fifth after drifting in the stretch from the inside rail and impeding eventual fourth-place finisher Jess Paid.
