Lynnder 16, a daughter of Apollitical Jess racing for the Pierre, South Dakota-based partnerhship of Tom Maher and Dick Tobin, topped the second night of Remington Park Futurity (RG2) trials on Saturday.

Prepped by Jason Olmstead, Lynnder 16 won the first of 11 330-yard trials by a clear two lengths in :16.789. Cristian Esqueda rode the filly, who was aided by a reported 10-mph tail wind while making her first career start.

Lynnder 16 was bred by James and Marilyn Helzer. The filly is out of Tinys Corona Queen, a winning 13-year-old daughter of Corona Cartel and a half sister to stakes winners Eagles Span, Eye Agree, and Genovese. Lynnder 16's second dam, the First Down Dash mare Tiny First Effort, was the sport's champion 3-year-old filly in 2001.
