Sixteen 330-yard heats will be contested on Friday and Saturday, eight each night. The five fastest qualifiers from each night of trials will race in the May 28, $331,880 final.

A maiden from two outs, the brown colt has banked $66,252, and he is coming off of a second-place finish, three-quarters of a length behind winner Mrs Kennedy TLC, in the March 27, $383,000 Mardi Gras Futurity (RG2) at Louisiana Downs.

Another Mardi Gras Futurity finalist, Toast To Blue drew post 5 and will be ridden by Everardo Rodriguez in Saturday's first heat. A $22,000 buy at last year's Louisiana QHBA Yearling Sale, the Jess Louisiana Blue colt is trained by Martin Trejo for owner Adame and Trejo Racing Team.

Trainer Kenneth Roberts Sr. will send out Konnan Cartel, an undefeated homebred son of Five Bar Cartel, for owner Dania Castellanos in Saturday's fourth trial. Konnan Cartel won both of his starts and banked earned $24,000 at Louisiana Downs.
