Owned by HFT-Xpress Racing of Aledo, Texas, Cu Rahy is trained by Danele Durham. The 3-year-old colt sat just off the pace made by Candy My Boy until the final turn of the 1 mile-70 yards. At that point, Quinonez roused Cu Rahy and he took the lead moving into the stretch. As Candy My Boy faded, Charlie Webb emerged with a rally that Cu Rahy was able to repel in drawing off to win by 1-1/2 lengths in 1:42.53. Charlie Webb held second while Mav Master was third, 3-3/4 lengths behind the winner.
Cu Rahy was at 7-2 odds in the betting and paid $9.80 to win, $4 to place and $2.80 to show. Charlie Webb returned $4.20 to place and $2.60 to show. Mav Master paid $2.80 to show. Altito was the beaten wagering favorite at 8-5 odds, finishing fifth.
A son of two-time Horse of the Year Curlin, from the Polish Numbers mare Richetta, Cu Rahy won his third career race from 14 starts. The winner’s share for the Maryland-bred was $21,678, boosting the total earnings of Cu Rahy to $85,806.
Quinonez also won with Okie Diva ($4.60 to win) in race five and Bling’s Ace ($13) in race six. The riding triple for Quinonez gives him 25 wins for the season. He has 1,310 wins at Remington Park and is one of only three jockeys to achieve more than a thousand wins in Oklahoma City. Cliff Berry (2,125) and Don Pettinger (1,419) are the other members of the group. Overall, Quinonez had 3,690 career victories.
The 2017 Remington Park Thoroughbred Season continues Wednesday thru Saturday, Dec. 6-9. The first race nightly is at 7pm-Central.
