Laddie, Lassie runners ready at Delta Downs
May 21, 2014
It could be Bobby Martinez’s weekend this weekend at Delta Downs.
John Gorman’s fastest-qualifier First Kiss Jitter, trained by Martinez, looks to turn potential into a futurity win in the $286,280 LQHBA Lassie Futurity (RG2) while Servando Montemayor and Martinez’s Heza Fast Wokatee is in the same position in the $265,285 Laddie Futurity (RG2).
The Lassie Futurity for Louisiana-bred fillies is on Friday and the Laddie Futurity for state-bred males is on Saturday.

First Kiss Jitter (Heza Fast Dash-Nancys Easy by Easy Dozen) and Heza Fast Wokatee (Heza Fast Dash-Wokatee by Shazoom) each made their first starts in their respective trials.
First Kiss Jitter, a half sister to MCM Easy Dasher ($288,268) and MCM Dozen Dasher ($232,497) came through in stunning fashion when she drew away from her rivals to win her trial by a length with the top time of :16.777 for the 330 yards.
The more experienced Dynastys Jumpn (Jumpn-Dynasty by Check Him Out) won her trial by a half length for owner Luis Miguel Albores-Gleason. The Wendy Garcia-trained filly was the eighth-place finisher in the $281,514 Mardi Gras Futurity (RG2) and is now the second-fastest qualifier at :16.820.
Bobby Martinez and Servando Montemayor’s Heza Fast Wokatee comes into the Laddie after also drawing out to win his trial. The gelding won the ninth of 13 trials by three-quarters of a length in :16.724 for the 330 yards for Martinez.
Jose Flores’ Buzzinga (Jet Black Patriot-Reckless Fast Dash by Heza Fast Dash) finished second behind Heza Fast Wokatee in their trial with the second-fastest time of :16.847. He was making his career debut for trainer Justin Dehart.
