A full field of 10 juveniles is scheduled to go postward in Friday’s 300-yard, $69,175 Beehive Futurity (R) at Weber Downs in Ogden, Utah.
Bryce Moosman’s BK Katmandu, a homebred son of the Mr Jess Perry stallion First Prize Stone and the fastest qualifier, drew post 7 and will be ridden by Jesus Canales. The gelding made his debut with a one-length victory in the seventh of eight trials at Laurel Brown Racetrack near Salt Lake City on April 23.
Second-fastest qualifier Making Hot Wheels, a gelded son of Maknmoves trained by Ismael Salvidrez for owner Elias Escalera, will be ridden from post 3 by Alan Miramontes. The gelding scored a 2 3/4-length win in his debut, the sixth Beehive Futurity trial.
The Beehive Futurity was originally scheduled to be run at Laurel Brown on May 7. However, inclement weather affected the track conditions that day and forced management to cancel the race and postpone it until Friday.
