Kollys Capi recorded the fastest time of the day at 250 yards in 11 training races at Remington Park on Wednesday with a time of :13.693 and a speed index of 76.

The effort came over a fast track with a temperature of 80 degrees. Kollys Capi performed into a headwind of 12mph.

Jockey Roman Cruz was in the saddle for trainer Josue Garcia in the seventh race of the day. The 2-year-old American Quarter Horse filly by Capo de Capi, out of the Inseperable mare Jills Magnolia, flew to the front out of the gate from the rail post position. Cruz kept her mind on business as she won her heat by two full lengths.

“I like to hear that,” said Garcia, after being told she had the fastest time of the day. “She’s in the trials on the 8th (of March).”

He was referring to the Oklahoma Futurity Trials on March 8-9 this year with the finals set for Saturday, March 23 for the Grade 2 event. That final is for 2-year-old Quarter Horses, going 300 yards. It will be the 83rd renewal of the Oklahoma Futurity, the longest-running futurity in the sport.

Kollys Capi’s sire (father) Capo de Capi won 6-of-13 races lifetime for earnings of $244,647. He was a multiple graded-stakes winner, taking the Grade 2 Heritage Place Derby at Remington Park in 2011 and the Grade 3 Speedhorse Gold and Silver Cup Derby at Fair Meadows in Tulsa, Okla. Those victories were part of a five-race winning streak Capo de Capi had that year.

Kollys Capi was bred in Oklahoma by owners Rick and Connie Dickson of Ardmore, Okla.
