Friday, October 04, 2013
OKLAHOMA CITY – Jockey Jose Medina enjoyed his biggest night of the season, riding three winners on Thursday at Remington Park. His last score, in the ninth and final race of the night, helped create local wagering history as it prompting a new all-time 10-cent Superfecta payoff.
Medina rode Minnie Rain Dance to victory in the ninth and final race, crossing the finish first by a neck over Sun King Sister. Princess Semoran charged from the back of the pack to gain third over a tiring Track That Cat. The respective win odds for the top four finishers in the Oklahoma-bred race for maiden fillies were 13-1, 33-1, 46-1 and 7-2. The resulting 10-cent Superfecta payoff, depicting the top four finishers in order, was $20,251.67.
The jackpot-like payoff for the 10-cent Superfecta easily eclipsed the former high mark for the wager of $14,412.05, set in 2006. The 10-cent Superfecta has been offered at Remington Park since the spring of 2005.
Medina posted his first riding triple of the season. He also won aboard Bustin To Belong ($39.40 to win) in race three and Kipper Dan ($15.60) in race four. The hat trick for Medina gives him 10 wins for the season, moving him into the top nine of the jockey standings.
