JOCKEY RICHARD ERAMIA WINS FEATURE WITH DAAHER’S SUCCESS, GETS RIDING QUADRUPLE
Daaher’s Success’ success was measured by a neck Saturday night in the featured allowance race at Remington Park.
The 4-year-old gelded son of Daaher, out of the Successful Appeal mare Successful Slew, got to the wire a neck in front of the wagering favorite Dance to My Song who was played at 3-2 odds. Jockey Richard Eramia battled with leading rider David Cabrera down the stretch and just prevailed at the finish of the $46,283 allowance race. Daaher’s Success went off as the 3-1 third favorite for owner-breeder-trainer C.R. Trout of Edmond, Okla., and paid $8.80 to win, $3.40 to place, and $2.80 to show.
Daaher’s Success earned $26,669 from the purse and improved his lifetime record to 16 starts, three wins, four seconds and one third for earnings of $120,266 in his career.
The winning time for the six-furlongs sprint was 1:11.89 over a fast track. Daaher’s Success and Dance to My Song were on or near the lead, never worse than second and third the whole race and they took over from Fearless Will at the top of the stretch and battled down the lane to the finish line. At It Early was third, another six lengths behind the top two.
The win was one of four for Eramia on the night. He pulled out of a tie for second with Ramon Vazquez with his banner night. Eramia’s winners were Caribbean Sea in the second race ($21.20 to win), Daaher’s Success ($8.80) in the fourth, Absaroka ($3) in the sixth and Rose of Malibu ($3.20) in the eighth.
MILLIONAIRE SHOTGUN KOWBOY WORKS BULLET, COULD BE FIRST HORSE TO WIN $1 MILLION OVER REMINGTON PARK TRACK
C.R. Trout’s top horse in training, Shotgun Kowboy, was the fastest of 30 horses that worked out Saturday morning at four furlongs. The millionaire horse stopped the timer and got the bullet of :47.58 handily.
This 7-year-old gelded son of Kodiak Kowboy, out of the Siphon (BRZ) mare Shotgun Jane, Shotgun Kowboy has earned $1,536,584 lifetime with 39 starts, 15 wins, five seconds and seven thirds. At Remington Park, Shotgun Kowboy was the 2015 Grade 3 Oklahoma Derby winner and earned some respect nationally when he beat Bob Baffert’s Grade 1 winner Mubtaahij in the 2018 Lone Star Park Handicap in Grand Prairie, Texas. Mubtaahij had won the Grade 1 Awesome Again Stakes at Santa Anita in 2017.
Shotgun Kowboy appears to be headed for a run at the $100,000 Jeffrey A. Hawk Memorial Stakes at 1 mile-70 yards for 3-year-olds and older. Last year, he was well beaten in this race, but Trout said his feet issues from back then seem to have been solved. He has won his last two races, including the $175,000 Oklahoma Classics Classic for the unprecedented fourth time. He would need to win the Jeffrey A. Hawk to become the first horse in Remington Park history to win $1 million over this track. He Stands at 16 starts, 10 wins, two seconds and three thirds here for $969,920.
