Cruz E. Nava’s Trump My Record, the fastest qualifier and 5-2 second choice in a field of 10 2-year-olds, sprinted to a neck victory in Wednesday’s $254,070 Harrah’s Entertainment Futurity (G3) at Louisiana Downs.

Under jockey Eddie Sanchez and aided by a reported 10-mph tail wind, Trump My Record covered 300 yards in :15.307 while aided by a reported 10-mph tail wind. The bay son of freshman sire Apollitical Blood was prepped by Arturo Davila III, the owner’s brother-in-law, and he banked $114,332 from his second win in as many starts.

“He is so professional, but today he was moving in the gate and didn’t break that well,” said Sanchez. “The filly (runner-up Baby Licious) was a head of us, but my colt didn’t quit and I never gave up. I was relieved that we won the race.”

Trump My Record was bred in Texas by Fulton Quien Sabe Ranches LP, and he was a $10,700 purchase at last year’s Texas QHA Yearling Sale in San Antonio. The colt made his debut with a 1 1/2-length victory in the fifth of nine Harrah’s Entertainment Futurity trials on March 2.

”We love Apollitical Blood,” said Davila of the graded stakes winning 7-year-old son of Apollitical Jess. “When we saw this colt at the sale, we loved everything about him. He looked like he would have potential.”

Davila added that Trump My Record’s connections are considering supplementing the colt into the May 10-11 Heritage Place Futurity (G1) trials at Remington Park.

“He’s paid into the TQHA Sale Futurity at Retama Park, but if he comes out of this race in good order we’ll pay the (Heritage Place) supplement,” the trainer said.

Giasfastdash finished third, a nose behind Baby Licious. Braggin With A B, Tressels Going Grand, Seis Train B, PYC Lovestruck, Apollitical Xpression, TH La Jolla Seis, and Big Daddy Jewel completed the order of finish.
