Streakin Fast Rogue, a gelded son of the Heza Fast Dash stallion Heza Fast Rogue owned by Ashton Elder and Miguel Romero Jr., is one of 170 state-bred 2-year-old colts and geldings entered in Saturday’s 330-yard Louisiana Breeders’ Laddie Futurity (RG2) trials at Delta Downs.

To accommodate the large number of trials — 17 — Delta Downs has moved its post time for the first race up to 3:30 p.m. CDT.

Streakin Fast Rogue will be stretching out in distance off of his fifth-place finish, three-quarters of a length behind winner HH Gailforce, in the 300-yard, $305,296 Mardi Gras Futurity (RG2) at Delta Downs. The gelding, a $10,500 purchase at last year’s Louisiana QHBA Yearling Sale, drew post 9 and will be ridden by Eddi Martinez in the sixth trial.

Other prominent Louisiana-bred 2-year-olds entered in Saturday’s trials include Mardi Gras Futurity finalists JJ Jess An Meteorite and Jrs Sir Pop A Top. A homebred black son of the Mr Jess Perry stallion Jess An Idea trained by Jose Carrizales for owner J & J Stables LLC, JJ Jess An Meteorite has earned $15,812 from two starts.

JJ Jess An Meteorite drew post 10 and will be ridden by Ricardo Hernandez Jr. in the 12th heat.

Jrs Sir Pop A Top was a $12,200 buy at last year’s LQHBA Yearling Sale. Trained by Willie Simien Jr. for owner Patrick Richardson, the Sir Runaway Dash colt drew post 8 and will be ridden by Rolando Pina in the eighth trial.

The 10 fastest qualifiers will meet in the May 18, $75,000-added Louisiana Breeders’ Lassie Futurity final.
