Dustin Cox's Jay Number 7, a homebred son of the Pyc Paint Your Wagon stallion Im A Fancy Pyc, is the fastest overall qualifier to the June 1, $963,100 Heritage Place Futurity (G1) at Remington Park.

Ridden by James Flores, Jay Number 7 on Saturday won the first of 11 350-yard trials by 1 1/4 lengths in :17.362. Samuel Valdivia trained the Oklahoma-bred gelding, who was winning for the third time in four outs and increasing his earnings to $42,800.

Jay Number 7 is out of First Ginlark, a 7-year-old daughter of the First Down Dash stallion My First Moon who won the 2014 John Deere Will Rogers Juvenile Challenge Stakes at Will Rogers Downs. He traces back to his third dam, Ginlark, a multiple stakes winning daughter of 1979 world champion Moon Lark.

Jay Number 7 was coming off of a third-place finish in the April 20, 330-yard Remington Park Juvenile Stakes (R) for Oklahoma-breds.

Jesses Dashair, the second-fastest overall qualifier, won her trial on Friday, the first of two nights of Heritage Place Futurity trials.

Valdivia saddled two Heritage Place finalists, including third-fastest overall qualifier Apollitical J Twin. Trainers Eddie Willis and Pedro Hernandez-Pulido also qualified two finalists.
