For Immediate Release
Wednesday, April 20, 2016
OKLAHOMA CITY – Extreme Racing for Charity, Remington Park’s highest attended race date of the calendar year, is this Sunday afternoon. The crowd of nearly 20,000 will also get to see the reigning king of American Quarter Horse racing, in addition to the camels, zebras, ostriches and more in their charitable events. Jess Good Candy will take the track for the $70,000 Mr. Master Bug Stakes, his first racing attempt as a 3-year-old.
The even-money morning-line favorite, Jess Good Candy has trained well at Remington Park this spring in preparation for his return to action. Owned by P.V. Quarterhorses of Ratliff City, Okla. and trained by Clint Crawford, Jess Good Candy posted a bullet 250-yard gate work on April 6 after breezing a sharp 220 yards on March 23.
A 3-year-old colt by Good Reason SA from the Mr Jess Perry mare Jess Send Candy, Jess Good Candy will be ridden by Ivan Carnero. A perfect four-for-four in his career, Jess Good Candy has earned $1,519,240. He enjoyed his first victory in maiden company at Remington Park in April 2015 and was eventually voted the American Quarter Horse Association’s Champion 2-year-old for 2015.
A 350-yard race for Oklahoma-bred 3-year-olds, the field for the Mr. Master Bug Stakes also includes BV Midnite Express, winner of the $1,170,000 Heritage Place Futurity at Remington Park last year. Winner of the $200,000 All American Juvenile at Ruidoso Downs on the undercard of Jess Good Candy’s All American Futurity, BV Midnite Express also won the $250,000 Sunland Park Winter Juvenile to conclude his 2-year-old campaign. BV Midnite Express is the second morning-line favorite at 4-1 odds.
