For Immediate Release
Monday, December 16, 2013
OKLAHOMA CITY – Remington Park’s 2013 Thoroughbred Season extended into Monday afternoon activity with Custody taking advantage of the opportunity. The card was one of two extra racing programs added to make up for the lost dates of racing in the winter storm of Dec. 5-7.
Owned by Adele Dilschneider of St. Louis and trained by Donnie Von Hemel, Custody was ridden by Luis Quinonez. The 3-year-old filly rolled to the front of the one-mile, $40,000 allowance race for fillies and mares, taking over after half the race. Once in the stretch, she pulled clear easily to score by 5-3/4 lengths, crossing the finish in 1:39.58 over a fast track.
The win was the third of the season for Custody and her second in a row, this time at odds of 13-1 as she paid $28.40 to win, $11.60 to place and $9.20 to show. Tastefullyxcessive was second, paying $3 to place and show. What The World was third, paying $4.60 to show.
A Kentucky-bred daughter of Broken Vow from the Dixie Union mare Visit, won her fourth race from seven career attempts and picked up $23,643 for the effort. Her lifetime earnings now stand at $96,761.
The race for the Pat Steinberg Memorial Award, presented to the season’s leading jockey, will continue into the final program of the season. Ramon Vazquez and Luis Quinonez each won a single race on the card. Vazquez will carry a two-win lead, 63-61 to the final day of racing on Tuesday. Vazquez has the advantage in opportunities Tuesday as he rides all 10 races on the program while Quinonez only has five mounts in which to try and reach the top of the standings.
Tuesday, Dec. 17 is the final race date of the season at Remington Park with a 10-race card underway at 1:30pm.
