OKLAHOMA CITY, OK–MAY 10, 2024–Alliekat Dynasty and Southern Divine are among the 58 sophomore fillies scheduled to make their next starts in Sunday's 400-yard Heritage Place Oaks (G2) trials at Remington Park.

Six trials will be contested. The 10 fastest qualifiers will meet in the $225,000-est. Heritage Place Oaks final on June 1.

Alliekat Dynasty is an Oklahoma-bred daughter of champion FDD Dynasty trained by Jesus Ruben Ruiz for owner Arrowhead Racing. The sorrel filly has won two of her three starts during the Remington Park meet, including the March 16, 350-yard Decketta Stakes (G2) against aged distaffers, and she is coming off of a third-place finish, a half of a length behind winner I Got Thiss, in the April 29, $188,975 Remington Park Derby (RG1) for state-bred sophomores.

Alliekat Dynasty drew post 2 and will be ridden by Roman Cruz in the second trial.

Southern Divine will be returning to Oklahoma off of her second-place run, three-quarters of a length behind winner Asscher, in the 400-yard, $404,000 Los Alamitos Oaks (G1) on March 23. Trained by Jed Vane for owner Dunn Ranch, the homebred Pyc Paint Your Wagon filly has banked $203,876 from 10 outs, and she was a finalist in California's richest horse race, last year's 400-yard, $1.786-million Los Alamitos Two-Million Futurity (G1).

Southern Divine drew post 8 and will be ridden by Bryan Candanosa in the fifth heat.

Flying Sophia, a homebred daughter of Flying Cowboy 123 trained by Mike Joiner for owners Calder and Candy Ezzell of Roswell, New Mexico, will be making her season debut in the fifth trial. The New Mexico-bred filly will be making her first start since October 22, when she scored a wire-to-wire, one-length victory in the 400-yard, $296,000 La Fiesta Futurity at Albuquerque Downs.

Flying Sophia drew post 5 and will be ridden by Francisco Calderon.
