DICEY PREVAILS IN ALLOWANCE FEATURE FRIDAY AT REMINGTON PARK
A solid group of seven Oklahoma-bred fillies and mares competed in a featured six-furlong sprint on Friday night at Remington Park. The wily veteran Dicey fired her usual consistent race, good enough to score by 1-1/4 lengths.
Owned by Pat Swan and Judith Lewis of Jones, Okla. and trained by Swan, the 7-year-old Dicey was handled by Harry Hernandez. The mare sat just off the early lead of Sinnin N Grinnin before firing a wide move coming off the turn to take over and prevail in 1:11.49 over a fast track.
Da Prairie Girl rallied for second, moving up the rail in the stretch, while pace-setting Sinnin N Grinnin faded to third, 2-1/4 lengths behind the victor. Sinnin N Grinnin established the opening quarter-mile split of :22.61, while Dicey had the half-mile in :46.04.
Dicey last won at Remington Park on Nov. 15, 2021 in an allowance event for Oklahoma-bred females at 6-1/2 furlongs. While she doesn’t win the majority of her races, she is usually around the money at the finish and continues to pile up the earnings. Friday’s purse was worth $40,000 with $23,898 going to Dicey, boosting her lifetime bankroll to $329,242.
Bred in Oklahoma by John James Revocable Trust, Dicey is by Flat Out from the Broken Vow mare Broken Blues. She has started 48 times with eight wins, three seconds and nine thirds.
