The brown gelding scored a 1 3/4-length victory in a 220-yard schooling race at Louisiana Downs, as he covered the distance in :12.022, the fastest winning time from six training races that day.

Emnent drew post 6 and will be ridden by Donald Watson in the first of eight 300-yard trials.

Noe Castaneda will ride Aguila from post 8 in the eighth heat.

Together To The End, a homebred filly by champion Inseperable trained by Jose Sanchez, drew post 6 and will be ridden by Eddie Sanchez in the fifth trial. Together To The End is out of Gabbey Holland, a winning 15-year-old daughter of Holland Ease.
