A $42,200 allowance event for fillies and mares, 3-years-old and older, was the first Remington Park attempt for Boom Bam Bing. She continues her excellence in five-furlong turf races by scoring her third straight win, and fifth in her last six attempts at the distance over the grass.
After sitting four lengths behind the pace-setting Devious Rumor until the stretch, Boom Ban Bing rallied wide under jockey David Cabrera to win by three-quarters of a length in :55.66 seconds. The late-running Girl’s Ruler captured second while Devious Rumor faded to third, two lengths behind the winner.
Owned by Love Partnership of Richmond, Texas and trained by Karl Broberg, Boom Bam Bing was 2-1 in the wagering and paid $6 to win, $3.60 to place and $2.60 to show. Girl’s Rule returned $8.80 to place and $5.20 to show. Devious Rumor paid $3.80 to show. Adrianne G was the beaten 9-5 betting favorite, finishing fourth, 3-1/4 lengths behind the winner.
Boom Bam Bing is a Kentucky-bred 3-year-old filly by Exchange Rate from the Gulch mare Crown Gulch. She won her sixth career race from 12 attempts and picked up $23,898 for the effort to run the lifetime earnings to $117,279.
