A 10-race card that includes the $32,185 Dixie Downs Futurity and the $10,705 Dixie Downs Derby is scheduled for Saturday at Dixie Downs in Hurricane, Utah.

Brett Vickery qualified 10 of his trainees for the two races from time trials held on April 3—six for the Derby and four for the Futurity. There were three Derby and nine Futurity trials on April 3.

Dave McArthur's Separate Gig, trained by Jay Pitcher, was the fastest qualifier to the Futurity, 7/100ths of a second faster than Gary and Jeralyn Messenger's Lajolla Famosa.

In the Derby trials, Vickery trainees posted the top four times, with the top two—Shes First Down and Djd Plum Jam—separated by only 1/1,000th of a second.
