Bye Byefreighttrain, a homebred gelded son of Freighttrain B racing for L.P. Frank of Durant, Oklahoma, is the 3-1 morning-line favorite in Sunday’s 350-yard, $50,000 Conquistador Stakes for 3-year-olds.

Bye Byefreighttrain will be making his first start since July 2, when he ran second, a half of a length behind winner El Duero, in the 350-yard, $30,000 Higheasterjet Handicap for older sprinters at Ruidoso Downs. The gelding’s season resume includes a second-place finish, three-quarters of a length behind winner A Tres Of Paint, in the 400-yard, $307,000 Remington Park Derby (RG3) for Oklahoma-breds on April 23.

Cesar Gomez will ride Bye Byefreighttrain for trainer Kasey Willis from post 3.

Bf Fooserageous drew post 5 and will be ridden by Adrian Ramos. A homebred daughter of champion Foose trained by Wes Giles for owner Birrell Farms of American Fork, Utah, the filly will be shortening in distance off of her neck victory in the 400-yard, $44,000 Adequan New Mexico Derby Challenge at Ruidoso Downs on July 2.
