OKLAHOMA CITY – Miss Oreo was forwardly placed in a $44,880 allowance for older Oklahoma-bred fillies and mares Wednesday night at Remington Park. Sitting just off the early lead, she managed to roll to the front early in the stretch and then draw clear to win by two lengths.
Owned by Mike Jones of Bristow, Okla. and trained by Carlos Padilla, Miss Oreo was ridden by Iram Diego. The 3-year-old filly was a half-length behind the front-running trio of Greenback Boogie, Will’s Money and Sugar Shaker midway through the final turn in the 1 mile-70 yard event. She swung wide into the stretch to move around rivals and pull away to win in 1:45.62.
Greenback Boogie held on for second with Hobbs Hope making a rally for third, 2-1/2 lengths from the winner.
Away at 10-1 odds in the wagering, Miss Oreo paid $23.60 to win, $14.40 to place and $4.80 to show. Greenback Boogie paid $22.60 to place and $9 to show. Hobbs Hope returned $5.40 to show. Vivid was the beaten 6-5 favorite in the betting, finishing sixth, four lengths behind the winner.
A daughter by Rock Hard Ten from the Unbridled’s Song mare Derby Lane’s Song, Miss Oreo won for the second time in eight career starts while making $25,654 for the effort. Her overall earnings now stand at $54,417.
C.J. McMahon, the season’s leading jockey in his first season of competition at Remington Park, won four more races Wednesday to pad his lead in the standings. McMahon scored with Dancinanimaux ($13.40 to win) in the second race, Santorini Sky ($3.40) in race four, Maddog Cyclone ($7) in race five and King Coral ($3.80) in the seventh.
The riding quadruple moves McMahon to 83 wins for the season, 11 ahead of second-place jockey Ramon Vazquez who is the two-time defending leading rider at Remington Park.
