BOSSIER CITY, LA—MARCH 9, 2022—Plausibledeniability, a son of champion FDD Dynasty racing for Juan M. Montoya, is one of 91 2-year-olds entered in Sunday’s 300-yard Louisiana Downs Futurity (G3) trials at Louisiana Downs.

Plausibledeniability prepped for his career debut with a two-length victory in the second of eight training races on February 19. Prepped by Levi Mays, the bay Texas-bred gelding covered 220 yards in :12.14, the fastest winning time from that day’s schooling races.

Plausibledeniability was a $35,000 purchase at last year’s Texas QHA Yearling Sale. The gelding drew post 2 and will be ridden by Jorge J. Garcia in the second of 10 trials.

Lance R. Moore’s Jes An Angel, a sorrel daughter of the Shazoom stallion Jess Zoomin trained by Dustin Rhodes, drew post 4 and will be ridden by Camilo Castillo in the 10th heat. A $10,000 buy at last year’s Heritage Place Yearling Sale in Oklahoma City, the filly scored a 1 3/4-length victory in her February 19 training race, as she went 220 in :12.28.

Other schooling-race winners entered in Sunday’s Louisiana Downs Futurity trials include Beaus First Dynasty, a homebred A Revenant filly trained by Jose Luis Sanchez III for owner Francisco Javier Garza. Beaus First Dynasty won her 220-yard training race by 1 1/2 lengths in :12.41.

Beaus First Dynasty drew post 2 and will be ridden by Ali Rivera in the 10th trial.

The 10 fastest qualifiers from Sunday’s trials will meet in the April 3, $324,288 Louisiana Downs Futurity final.
