CLEVER TREVOR STAKES DRAWS 11 FOR FRIDAY AT REMINGTON PARK
For Immediate Release
OKLAHOMA CITY – Remington Park’s feature race of the week takes place Friday night with a field of 11 in the $100,000 Clever Trevor Stakes.
Tuesday, October 31, 2017
The Clever Trevor is the final Remington Park stakes event for 2-year-olds leading up to the $400,000 Springboard Mile in December, now a Kentucky Derby points eligibility race. At seven furlongs, Analyze This Jet will be turning back in distance in the Clever Trevor Stakes, after winning the $75,000 El Joven Stakes going one mile over turf at Retama Park in Selma, Texas on Oct. 14.
Owned by Johnny Evans and trainer Terry Eoff of Granbury, Texas, Anaylze This Jet has won two consecutive races at the one mile distance. The 2-year-old Kentucky-bred colt by Overanalyze broke his maiden at Remington Park on Oct. 4, over a muddy main track in a race that was taken off the turf. He then won over the turf in the El Joven, pulling away to a 1-1/4 length margin under Lane Luzzi who has been up for both of his wins and will ride again Friday.
Analyze This Jet is one of four Clever Trevor entrants with two career wins. Land Battle finished second in the $75,000 Kip Deville Stakes at six furlongs on Sept. 24 at Remington Park, beaten a half-length. A gelding by Istan, Land Battle then returned to win an allowance race by a half-length while going 6-1/2 furlongs at Remington Park on Oct. 14 for trainer Scott Gelner. Jockey Shane Laviolette will have the ride on Land Battle in the Clever Trevor.
Diamondandstripes is coming off a front-running victory in the $100,000 Oklahoma Classics Juvenile for Oklahoma-breds on Oct. 20 at Remington Park. Owned and trained by James Helzer, Diamondandstripes won his stakes race by a length. Jockey Freddy Manrrique has the call on Friday night.
Just Call Me Ken ships in for the Clever Trevor Stakes after winning the $50,000 Governor’s Cup on Oct. 9 at Zia Park in Hobbs, N.M. Trained by John Cooper, Just Call Me Ken will be ridden by Alfredo Juarez, Jr., the only jockey to handle him in four career starts.
