EYSA JESS JUMPN SETS THE FASTEST TIME FOR
THE DELTA DOWNS LOUISIANA-BRED DERBY

- THE $308,863 FINAL WILL TAKE PLACE ON CLOSING NIGHT, SATURDAY, JULY 6 -


VINTON, LA. – Delta Downs conducted five trials for this year’s $308,863 Delta Downs Louisiana-bred Derby (RG3) on Friday night and a very familiar name set the fastest time in the 400-yard heats. Jose Estrada Quarter Horses’ Eysa Jess Jumpn, who took last year’s Lee Berwick Futurity (RG1), won the third trial of the night in a time of 19.429 seconds, which equaled a speed index of 99. Each trial was contested over a fast track.

Eysa Jess Jumpn was ridden to victory by Guadalupe Lucio, Jr. and is trained by Josue Huitron. The 3-year-old filly has now won nine of 12 starts in her career and she has only lost once in five trips at Delta Downs. Her $7,200 paycheck for winning the trial raised her overall bankroll up to $432,970.

Bred in Louisiana by D & S Racing LLC, Eysa Jess Jumpn is a brown filly by Heza Fast Dash, out of the Mr Jess Perry mare Jess Jumpn.

Listed below are the 10 qualifiers for this year’s Delta Downs Derby from the fastest time down. The final will take place on Louisiana Showcase Night, Saturday, July 6.
