Fastest qualifier Chicks First Flash and undefeated 2-year-olds One Sweet Duck and Muy Bien Corona are among the 10 juveniles entered back in Sunday's 300-yard, $257,500 Robert Adair Kindergarten Futurity (G2) at Los Alamitos.

Chicks First Flash broke his maiden with a half-length victory in the fourth of seven trials on April 24. The homebred son of champion First Moonflash is trained by Monty Arrossa for owners Five Livestock Company LLC and Steve Wright.

Chicks First Flash drew post 5 and will be ridden by Armando Cervantes.

Arrossa will also send out One Sweet Duck, a homebred One Sweet Jess filly owned by Lex A. Fabrizio. One Sweet Duck has earned $7,470 from two outs, and his two wins include a three-quarter length victory as the odds-on favorite in his Kindergarten trial.

One Sweet Duck drew the rail post and will be ridden by Ruben Lozano.

A Corona Cartel colt trained by Heath Taylor for owner Keith W. Nellesen, Muy Bien Corona has been the odds-on favorite in both of his starts, and his two wins in as many races include a half-length victory as the 1-2 choice in his Kindergarten trial. Muy Bien Corona drew post 6 and will be ridden by Eduardo Nicasio.

The Kindergarten Futurity was first contested in 1955, and it is one of Los Alamitos' oldest continually run stakes. Past winners include Jet Deck, Easy Date, Town Policy, Tolltac, First Down Dash, Corona Chick and Corona Cartel.
