Thursday, December 07, 2017

OKLAHOMA CITY – Itsallaboutyou picked up his third starter allowance win of the Remington Park season on Thursday night. The 6-year-old Iowa-bred gelding was sharp in winning by 1-3/4 lengths.

Owned by Danny Caldwell of Poteau, Okla. and trained by Federico Villafranco, Itsallaboutyou was ridden by Ramon Vazquez. Itsallaboutyou was reserved just behind the early leaders until midway through the lone turn of the 5-1/2 furlong race. He had the advantage by the time the field turned into the stretch and opened up a daylight lead. It wasn’t until the final furlong that Vazquez had to ask Itsallaboutyou for some effort in order to hold off a rally by He’s A Ranger. Vanderboom Ridge was third, 9-1/2 lengths behind the winner.

Away as the heavy 2-5 wagering favorite, Itsallaboutyou paid $2.80 to win, $2.10 to place and $2.10 to show. He’s A Ranger paid $4.60 to place and $3 to show. Vanderboom Ridge paid $4.60 to show.

The third win of the season was the 15th win in the career of Itsallaboutyou, a son of Harlington from the Silver Deputy mare Edey’s Village. The winner’s share of the $14,850 purse to Itsallaboutyou was $8,757, driving his career earnings to $277,767.
