For Immediate Release
Wednesday, February 11, 2015
OKLAHOMA CITY – Remington Park began training race opportunities today for young horses preparing for the 2015 American Quarter Horse & Mixed-breed Season. On the first day of the non-pari-mutuel events, a new track record was posted with another layer of history included.
HYO Inseperable, a 2-year-old gelding, streaked 250 yards in the third of 13 training races on the day. He crossed the finish in a remarkable :12.955 seconds over a fast track. The time was the first training race ever at Remington Park to crack the 13-second barrier.
Owned by Michelle Crockett & Terry Irby, partnership of Denison, Texas, HYO Inseperable is trained by Alonza Xavier, Jr. The 2-year-old is a Texas-bred by Inseperable from the Oak Tree Special mare Hy Oak Special.
Running second, a half-length behind the record-setter was The Charm Of Corona, whose time of :13.084 also bested the old Remington Park 250-yard training race record of :13.147. Water Front posted the previous training race record on March, 12, 2014.
HYO Inseperable set his new standard, aided by a 16mph tailwind out of the north with a temperature of 50 degrees.
