Douglas O. Traylor's Royal Quick Patriot, a gelded son of Jet Black Patriot trained by Kenneth Roberts Sr., is the fastest qualifier to the May 21, $281,007 Louisiana Breeders' Laddie Futurity (RG2) for state-bred 2-year-old colts and geldings at Delta Downs.

Ridden by Donald Watson in the 13th of 14 330-yard trials on Saturday, Royal Quick Patriot defeated third-fastest qualifier Bankin On Bux by a neck in :16.911. The gelding was making his career debut.

Royal Quick Patriot was bred by Richard and Janelle Simon. Traylor acquired the gelding for $43,000 at last year's Louisiana Quarter Horse Breeders' Association Yearling Sale.
