The warmest day of the young year is forecast as Dixie Downs opens its short season on Saturday. Three trials to the Dixie Downs Derby and seven trials to the Dixie Downs Futurity are scheduled.

Wendy and Travis Saxton's Veyron, runner-up in last year's Futurity, leads the Derby entrants. Veyron is trained by Bret Vickery; Paul Greene gets the mount.

In the Futurity trials, owners A&C Racing & Roping out of Roosevelt, Utah, are leading owners with five entrants, four of which are by the Oklahoma stallion Brookstone Bay.
