Ten 2-year-olds, topped by fastest qualifier and morning-line favorite Pops Tempting Wagon, have been entered back in Saturday's 300-yard, $371,200 Oklahoma Futurity (G3) at Remington Park.
Trained by Guillermo Valdivia for owner Gabriel Gutierrez, Pops Tempting Wagon made his debut with a wire-to-wire, three-quarter length victory in the sixth of 12 trials on March 10. The Oklahoma-bred colt by champion Tempting Dash was a $15,000 buy at last year's Heritage Place Yearling Sale.
