For Immediate Release
OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma-breds were featured in a $43,350 allowance event on a special Friday afternoon program at Remington Park. Agent McGee picked up his second win of the season, stretching out to win a 6-1/2 furlong sprint by 1-1/2 lengths.
Friday, November 24, 2017
Owned and bred in Oklahoma by Kelly Thiesing of Alva, Okla., Agent McGee is trained by Kenny Nolen. Jockey Richard Eramia had his regular mount as he nurtured the 3-year-old gelding through a duel for the front with Quality Rocket before dispatching him at the top of the stretch. Agent McGee pulled away from his rivals and had enough to reach the finish ahead of the late rally by Visual Punch. Sooner Heat gained late for third, three lengths behind the winner.
The even-money betting favorite, Agent McGee paid $4 to win, $2.40 to place and $2.10 to show. Visual Punch returned $3.60 to place and $2.40 to show. Sooner Heat paid $3.20 to show.
The win is the second from four attempts for Agent McGee, all this season. A gelded son of Toccet from the Grand Slam mare Fast N Flashy, Agent McGee made $24,973 to move his total earnings $67,796.
Remington Park racing continues Saturday with a nine-race card starting at 7pm.
