Buckey and Beverly Stockwell's homebred Coronas Child defeated Invisible Wagon by a neck on Saturday afternoon for his second straight win and the top qualifying mark in the John Deere Evergreen Park Juvenile Challenge trials at the Rocky Mountain Turf Club in Grande Prairie, Alberta.

The 10 fastest from the 22 Bank of America Racing Challenge-enrolled 2-year-olds who competed in the three trial races will return to the Canadian racetrack on August 10 and vie for the winner's share of the $18,500-added purse as well as a spot in the $150,000 John Deere Juvenile Challenge Championship (G2) to be run November 9 during the Bank of America Challenge Championships at Los Alamitos Race Course.

Ridden by Scott Sterr, Coronas Child posted a time of :17.97 for 350 yards, a 92 speed index, to get the top mark. The son of first-crop sire Coronas Fast Dash is 2-0-1 in three starts. He is out of the Chicks Beduino mare Eyes Of A Child.

Invisible Wagon, a Texas-bred PYC Paint Your Wagon filly owned by Willis and Jeffrey Denard, held on to the second-fastest time of :18 flat. Laurie Ferguson conditions the non-winner from two starts with Danielle DiBert riding. Sally Box bred Invisible Wagon from the Invisible Injun mare A Troffe For Injun.
