Ought To Go Tee, a son of the Corona Cartel stallion Tee Cos trained by Fernando Lopez for owner Jose U. Oviedo, is the fastest qualifier from the first night of Lee Berwick Futurity (RG1) trials at Delta Downs.

Ridden by Rolando Cabrera, Ought To Go Tee on Friday won the eighth of 10 350-yard heats by 3 3/4 lengths in :17.315. The gelding was winning for the second time in three outs and increasing his earnings to $74,056.

Ought To Go Tee was coming off of a second-place finish, a half of a length behind winner Sir Louisiana Dash, in the 330-yard, $358,000 Louisiana Breeders' Laddie Futurity (RG2) on the Fourth of July. The gelding was bred by Ronald J. Gale, and he is out of VF Ought To Go Max, a winning 9-year-old daughter of Bigtime Favorite. His second dam, the First To Shine mare Ought To Go Shine, won the 2005 Evangeline Downs Juvenile Stakes.

Second-fastest qualifier TF Runaway Dashin broke his maiden with a half-length victory in the fourth heat. Prepped by Alonso Neri for owner Raedele Phipps, the Sir Runaway Dashing gelding went 350 yards in :17.394 under jockey Antonio Alberto.
