CABRERA RIDES FOUR WINNERS FRIDAY AT REMINGTON PARK
For Immediate Release
OKLAHOMA CITY – Cool fall weather came to Remington Park on Friday night with temperatures ranging from the low 40s at the start of racing, dropping down to the high 30s as the night progressed. The chill in the air did not hinder jockey David Cabrera as he guided four winners home and moved closer to the leading jockeys in the process.

Cabrera’s riding quadruple did not begin until race four when he scored aboard Make Amends ($9.40 to win) for Pin Oak Stable of Versailles, Ky. Make Amends won her second race in a row this season at Remington Park and was the second winner on the evening for the track’s all-time leading trainer Donnie Von Hemel.
Cabrera made it back-to-back wins in race five, piloting the longest shot in the race home when Witt’s Town ($59.80) won while going 1-1/16 miles over the turf. Witt’s Town is owned by Henry Witt, Jr. of Waco, Texas and is trained by Terry Eoff.
Gentleman’s Honor ($10.60) became the third winner of the night for Cabrera in race seven, surging home through traffic to win a 1 mile-70 yards claiming event for owner and trainer Robert Mitzner of Abbyville, Kan. It was the fourth consecutive win for Gentleman’s Honor, dating back to July.
The fourth and final win on the night for Cabrera came in race eight when Courageous One ($14) won a speed duel to cross the finish line first in a five-furlong turf sprint. Owned by Rebecca Ricker of Smithville, Mo. and trained by Tim Martin, Courageous One scored in his first-ever race at Remington Park.
The four-win night for Cabrera gives him 31 wins on the season. He is in third place in the jockey standings behind Richard Eramia who leads with 37 wins and Ramon Vazquez who is second with 36 wins.
