Remington Park Futurity Trials Set for Friday, Saturday

The 10 fastest qualifiers, five from each night, will meet in the April 21 final.

Remington Park will play host to 22 Remington Park Futurity trials this weekend, 11 on Friday and 11 on Saturday.

A total of 189 Oklahoma-bred 2-year-olds has been entered in this weekend’s Remington Park Futurity (RG2) trials at Remington Park.

Eleven 330-yard heats will be contested on Friday and Saturday, starting at 6 p.m. (CDT) each night.

Bella Vista Farms’ Jeaniologi, a sorrel daughter of Dominyun and a $17,000 purchase at last year’s Heritage Place Yearling Sale, will be ridden by Mario Delgado for trainer Eddie Lee Willis from post 5 in the ninth trial on Friday. Jeaniologi made her debut at Remington Park on March 17, as the filly won a 250-yard maiden-special-weight dash by a half of a length in :13.10.

Another promising 2-year-old entered in Friday’s trials, VF Jedi Returns, is a sorrel son of High Rate Of Return trained by Dustin Cox for owner Julio Contreras, who acquired the gelding for $9,700 at last year’s Heritage Place Yearling Sale. VF Jedi Returns made his debut at Remington on March 18, winning a 250-yard maiden-special-weight race by three-quarters of a length in :13.28.

VF Jedi Returns drew post 6 and will be ridden by G.R. Carter Jr.

Saturday’s trials are headed by Cappafeyin, a homebred Capo de Capi gelding owned by Dee Raper and Fred Helmuth. The 6-5 morning-line favorite in the second heat, Cappafeyin is coming off of a one-length victory in a 250-yard maiden-special-weight dash for Oklahoma-breds on March 9, as he covered the distance in :13.16.

The five fastest qualifiers from each night of trials will meet in the $270,000-added Remington Park Futurity final on April 21.
