Eye N Capo drew post 8 and will be ridden by Damian Martinez in the last of six trials.
Dicecapades is a Prospect To The Top filly owned by Terry McLean of Claremore, Oklahoma. Trained by Gerry McLean, Dicecapades will be making her 3-year-old season debut off of a juvenile campaign during which she won four of seven starts, including two Oklahoma-bred stakes during the Remington Park meet, and banked $167,517.
James Flores will ride Dicecapades from post 5 in the first heat.
Trainer Rick Robinson will send out Teller Baja for owner Juan A. Medina, who also bred the sorrel daughter of Teller Cartel. Teller Baja has won four of six starts, including last year’s 330-yard, $888,000 Remington Park Futurity (RG2) as the fastest qualifier, and she has earned $429,058.
