Fantasmo wins the Copper Top Futurity at Sunland Park.

* Dooze ($13.80) dueled outside 1-2 favorite Out of View till midway on the turn then drew off to a 13 3/4-length victory in the $50,000 Howard B. Noonan Stakes at Beulah Park. Dooze was timed in 1:10.22 for the six furlongs in the field of eight Ohio-bred 3-year-olds.

* Fantasmo and entrymate Twice the Moves ($2.40) dominated the $195,317 Copper Top Futurity at Sunland Park. Fantasmo jumped out to the lead in the 4 1/2-furlong race for New Mexico-bred 2-year-olds as part of the 1-5 favored entry for trainer Barbara Brown and was never seriously threatened, winning by 3 3/4 lengths.

* Muir Beach, the 2005 horse of the meet at Turf Paradise who was coming off a surprising defeat, moved back to dirt and back to the winner's circle in the $40,000 Cactus Flower Handicap. Muir Beach needed every inch of stretch to beat Katy Smiles by a neck.

* Shesaidsheknowsya ($9.80) rallied from four lengths behind 1-2 favorite Up 'N Blumin in the last furlong at Fonner Park to win the $17,800 Runza by a neck and give apprentice rider Tanner Riggs his first stakes win.
