The five fastest Louisiana-bred colts and geldings from Friday’s action will join the top five from Saturday’s eight trials to make it into the final of the race, which will take place on Saturday, May 28.
The fastest qualifier from Friday night was Rogelio Marquez, Jr.’s San Lorenzo Jet ($10.20), who won the fifth trial of the night under jockey David Alvarez. The Jesus Marquez trainee covered 330 yards in a time of 16.781 seconds, which equaled a speed index of 87. Each race on the Friday program was contested over a fast track.
