Two horses with tentative qualifications in the All American Futurity (G1) - overall fastest qualifier Apollitical J Wild and qualifier Dynasty Dinamo - will be ineligible to enter back in the $3 million race, after returning positive hair tests for albuterol, according to Izzy Trejo, executive director of the New Mexico Racing Commission. Tentative All American Derby (G1) qualifier Ryansmanonthemoon will also be ineligble to enter back due to a positive hair test for albuterol, he says.

The horses will be placed on the 60-day stewards list following the out-of-competition hair tests performed after the trials. Any appeals would have to go through the court system, and the Daily Racing Form reports that they have not been notified of pending appeals as of Saturday.

The next fastest potential qualifiers eligible for the final for the All American Futurity are Determined One and Amethyst. The latter is reported to be out of eligibility due to leaving the grounds due to medical reasons, leaving DF Mischieveous Jess as the next potential qualifier. 

Moving into potential eligibility for the All American Derby is Rustys Miracle, who tied for the 10th qualifying spot, but lost the shake earlier in the week.

Entries for the races will be taken on Monday.
