The field has been set for the July 4, $308,335 Firecracker Futurity (G2) at Delta Downs.

Fastest qualifier A Painted Dynasty, an Oklahoma-bred son of champion Fdd Dynasty owned by Jardiel Perez, on Saturday won the first of eight trials by three-quarters of a length from second-fastest qualifier Lovethewayyourun. Ridden by Victor Urieta Jr. for trainer Josue Ponce, the colt covered 350 yards in :17.394 while earning his second win in four outs.

A Painted Dynasty was bred by The Mixer Ranch, and he was a $15,000 purchase at last year's Heritage Place Yearling Sale in Oklahoma City. The colt has earned $56,807, and his resume includes a third-place finish in the May 3, 330-yard Sam Houston Futurity (G2).

Lovethewayyourun races for Florentino Leon from the barn of trainer Josue Huitron. The One Dashing Eagle colt was bred in Colorado by Tom Bradbury, and he was a $20,000 buy at last year's Heritage Place Yearling Sale.

Lovethewayyourun has banked $6,032 from three starts.
