BIZZY LEGS GETS BIZZY IN FEATURED ALLOWANCE, LEAVES REST OF FIELD IN HIS DUST WITH EASY WIN
Remington Park’s main track has always been a successful venue for Bizzy Legs and he added to that resume Saturday night as he won for the fourth time after moving off the grass.
Bizzy Legs not only won in the featured allowance race, but he won with nary another competitor in sight, hitting the finish line 7-3/4 lengths ahead of the runner-up in the 1 mile-70 yard race. Jockey Stewart Elliott returned to the saddle for trainer Brent Davidson on Bizzy Legs and he rode him perfectly to the victory.
Three times this meet, Bizzy Legs had been less than a length away from winning on the Remington Park turf course, but he ran second, beaten a half-length; second, beaten three-quarters of a length, and third, beaten a half-length. He finally broke through in a big way for owner Colleen Davidson of Grant, Okla. The 4-year-old gelded son of Fed Biz (Giant’s Causeway), out of the Parading mare Love Those Legs, romped home an easy winner for the Davidsons for his first win in 15 tries this year. His last win came in similar fashion with second-level allowance horses over Remington’s main track on Dec. 4, 2021. Despite not winning in 14 tries in 2022, Bizzy Legs had lit the board in second or third place in seven of those efforts.
On Saturday night, Bizzy Legs made sure it wouldn’t be another close-but-no-cigar finish. Oliver (9-2) ran second, 2-1/4 lengths ahead of third-place Tiz Life (2-1). Bizzy Legs was sent off at 5-1 odds and returned $12.40 to win, $6.40 to place and $4 to show across the board to his backers. The 8-5 post-time favorite, Catdaddy, checked in fourth, another half-length back of Tiz Life.
Bizzy Legs, bred in Kentucky by E. H. Beau Lane III, earned $21,729 from the $36,300 purse and improved his career record to 34 starts, five wins, eight seconds and five thirds for $132,001 in earnings. It was one of two wins for Elliott on the card for the veteran rider who resides in second place in the standings behind Cristian Torres.
Running time for the distance was 1:43.69. The early front-runners, Oliver and Tiz Life, cut out fractions of 24.69 for the first quarter-mile, 49.13 for the half, 1:14.04 for three-quarters and 1:39.35 for the mile. The race was for third-level allowance horses, 3-year-olds-and-older.
