Thomas J. Scheckel's A Trace Of Sign is one of 51 2-year-olds entered in Saturday's 350-yard Mystic Lake Northlands Futurity trials at Canterbury Park.

A bay daughter of champion Tres Seis trained by Jason Olmstead, A Trace Of Sign earned $82,795 from three starts during the Remington Park spring meet, and his resume included a fourth-place finish, a neck behind winner Johnny De Capo, in the 330-yard, $895,000 Remington Park Futurity (RG1) for Oklahoma-breds on April 20.

A Trace Of Sign drew the rail post and will be ridden by Cristian Esqueda in the fifth of six heats.

Trainer Clint Crawford will send out Political Candyhouse, an undefeated son of world champion Apollitical Jess owned by PV Quarter Horse Farms LLC. Political Candyhouse won both of his outs at Remington Park, including a 350-yard Heritage Place Futurity (G1) trial on May 10.

Cody Smith will ride Political Candyhouse from Post 5 in the third trial.

The 10 fastest qualifiers will meet in the July 7, $156,000 Mystic Lake Northlands Futurity final.
