For Immediate Release
Friday, October 20, 2017

OKLAHOMA CITY – The pace was right for a rally in the $130,000 Oklahoma Classics Distaff Sprint, sponsored by Global Gaming Solutions, at Remington Park on Friday. Hailstorm Slew came from just off the pace to get the lead in the stretch, winning by 1-1/2 lengths.

Owned, trained and bred in Oklahoma by C.R. Trout, Hailstorm Slew was ridden by David Cabrera. The 4-year-old sat just off the lead until leaving the lone turn when she made her move for the front. Fiddlers Tsunami and Showtime Sis were locked in a duel up front until the top of the stretch. Hailstorm Slew rolled outside and made the front by mid-stretch, pulling away to cross the finish in 1:09.6.

Okie Diva Rallied for second while Fiddlers Tsunami held third, fading 5-3/4 lengths behind the winner.

Played at 5-2 in the wagering, Hailstorm Slew paid $7.40 to win, $3.60 to place and $3.40 to show. Okie Diva paid $8 to place and $5.80 to show. Fiddlers Tsunami paid $12.80 to show. Euro K Shotgun was the beaten 9-5 betting favorite, finishing a disappointing ninth in the field of 11.

A filly by Munnings from the Successful Appeal mare Successful Slew, Hailstorm Slew won her sixth career race from 16 starts. The $78,000 share for the Distaff Sprint increases her lifetime earnings to $279,798.
