VINTON, LA—MAY 23, 2022—After three of the 10 qualifiers did not enter back, including undefeated Mardi Gras Futurity(RG2) winner Mrs Kennedy Tlc, the $310,695 Louisiana Lassie Futurity(RG2) is up for grabs.

The restricted Grade 2 330 yard event, for accredited Louisiana-bred fillies, will be contested as Race 10 on Friday’s Delta Downs card with an approximate post of 9:35 PM (CDT). First post is 6:15 PM.

Second fastest qualifier (fastest from night 1) Cos Mamma Said has been installed as the 3-1 morning-line favorite.

Trainer Francisco Campos, Jr. has named jockey Humberto Vital to ride the daughter of multiple stakes sire Tee Cos.  The $11,000 LQHBA Yearling Sale graduate races for Campos and co-owner Jesus Longoria.  

Bred by Wiggins Acres LLC, the bay tilly is out of the Apollitical Jess mare Mamma Jamma Jamma, a sister to stakes winner Jess Proved You Wrong and half-sister to stakes winner Oh Cooper Go. This is the family of Golden State Million Futurity(G1) Apollitical Gold.

Cos Mamma Said finished second in her career debut, a maiden at Louisiana Downs before posting a ¾ length trial win and the fastest qualifying time on night 1 of the Lassie trials at Delta.

With a solid rally under jockey David Alvarez, Cool Ya Jets (9/2) won her trial on Night 1 by one-length to the get the second fastest qualifying time in her career debut. Champion trainer Kenneth Roberts, Sr. will saddled the second choice in the morning-line for owner Pete Scarmardo. Ubaldo Luna will take over the riding duties.

The filly by multiple stakes sire Jet Black Patriot is from the stakes-placed Heza Fast Dash mare McM On Thin Ice.  The second dam is the stakes winning thoroughbred mare Icy Lane, a half-sister to 5 black type including G1-placed First Down Morn and G1-placed Early Morning Bite. Bayou Stirling Equine LLC bred the $23,500 LQHBA Yearling Sale repurchase.

San Lorenzo Moon (6-1), a $67,000 LQHBA Yearling Sale repurchase by leading sire Apollitical Blood, will try to replicate her dam’s race record who made her career debut by qualifying for the Lassie Futurity(RG2), then returning to win the final in a start to a brilliant race career.

San Lorenzo Moon is the first foal of the great race mare Dashnunder Afullmoon by Heza Fast Dash. Dashnunder Afullmoon won eight of 11 starts including the Lee Berwick Futurity(RG1), Louisiana Champions Day Juvenile (RG2) and the LQHBA Breeders' Derby. She earned $711,951.
