The 12th running of the $800,000 Sunland Derby is just days away, with the race nearing, we're taking a look at the nine horses that will line up for a chance at an automatic entry to the Kentucky Derby.

The local sensation in the trainer category is Justin Evans. The 32-year-old conditioner is in the midst of the most dominating year in Sunland Park history. Evans is on course to win over 100 races this meet. He is ranked nationally in the top five trainers for races won. His Sunland Derby (Gr. III) horse is Rebranded. Privately purchased for six figures by Tony Pennington, Rebranded shipped in from the East Coast and broke his maiden in the $100,000 Riley Allison Futurity and was a courageous second in the $120,000 Mine That Bird Stakes. The large son of Tiznow relishes the home course advantage.

In the coming days, we will preview all nine horses, Bourbonize, Garen, Commissioner, Global Strike, Tanzanite Cat, Lawly's Goal, Midnight Hawk, Rebranded and Chitu.
