BUSTIN A MOVE HAS OKLAHOMA CLASSICS LASSIE FOR EVERY STRIDE
For Immediate Release
OKLAHOMA CITY – Bustin A Move did just that, launching from the starting gate to lead every step of the $100,000 Oklahoma Classics Lassie sponsored by Coors Light at Remington Park on Friday night.
Friday, October 20, 2017
Owned and bred by Clark Brewster of Tulsa, Okla. and trained by National Racing Hall of Famer Steve Asmussen, jockey Ramon Vazquez put Bustin A Move on the lead from their rail post position and she rolled. The 2-year-old filly had an easy three-length lead at the top of the stretch before Vazquez asked her for more. Bustin A Move responded to open a wide margin in mid-stretch, helping her have enough left to hold on to win by 1-1/2 lengths while covering six furlongs in 1:10.43 over a fast track. Annieruok was second while Create A Star was third, 1-3/4 lengths behind the victor.
Favored in the wagering at 2-1 odds, Bustin A Move paid $6.80 to win, $3.60 to place and $2.60 to show. Annieruok paid $7 to place and $4.20 to show. Create A Star paid $3.20 to show.
The Lassie win was the first in the race for all of the connections of Bustin A Move, an Oklahoma-bred filly by Bustin Stones from the Rahy mare Stick And Move. She won her second straight race of the season, both of her career wins, picking up $60,000, to move her lifetime money to $98,643.
The win in the Lassie was the second overall in the Oklahoma Classics for Asmussen.
