Owned by the Culver City, Calif. partnership of Garvan Kelly, Nancy Yearsley and Lloyd Yother, Jess Envision is trained by Juan Aleman and was ridden to her trial win and top time by James Flores. The 3-year-old filly crossed the finish in :20.004 seconds over a fast track and did so while only being asked over the final 100 yards. She appeared to be well within herself before Flores made sure of things in the latter stages.
Jess Envision finished one length ahead of Rosas Coronas in the fourth trial for the derby. All of the trials were conducted under sunny skies and into a headwind ranging between 19-23mph.
A daughter of Apollitical Jess from the Tres Seis mare Answer The Dream, Jess Envision won her third career race from nine attempts. The trial romp was her second career win at Remington Park. She picked up $8,730 by winning the trial, pushing her lifetime earnings to $29,522.
