A total of 105 2-year-olds, all of whom will be making their first lifetime starts, has been entered in Saturday's Oklahoma Futurity (G3) trials at Remington Park.

A dozen 300-yard heats are scheduled. Post time for the first race is set for 4 p.m. (CST).

Andrew T. Smith's Washita Jack, a recent training race winner, drew post 8 and will be ridden by Mario Delgado for trainer Luis Villafranco in the sixth trial. A homebred colt by champion Inseperable, Washita Jack won the fifth of six 250-yard schooling races by a half of a length in :13.86, the fastest winning time of the day on February 7.

Reggies Bailbond, a homebred son of High Rate Of Return trained by Clint Crawford for owner Bret Pevehouse, drew post 2 and will be ridden by Omar Reyes in the seventh heat. On February 8, the gelding scored a half-length victory in a 250-yard schooling race, covering the trip in ;14.014, the fastest winning time of the day, while racing into a 14-16 mph tail wind.

The 10 fastest qualifiers will meet in the March 24 Oklahoma Futurity final.
