PATSY R UPSETS HEAVY FAVORITE MORNING TWILIGHT IN FEATURED ALLOWANCE RACE AT REMINGTON PARK
Patsy R took advantage of 4-5 odds-on favorite Morning Twilight rearing up as the gates opened and never being a factor in the featured allowance race on Friday night at Remington Park.
Patsy R went straight to the lead and was eventually challenged by Bring It On Baby as they moved off the backstretch into the lone turn of the six furlongs. The pair battled back and forth, taking turns with the advantage until Patsy R finally prevailed and moved ahead for good with a sixteenth of a mile remaining. The 3-year-old filly crossed the finish a length ahead of a game Bring It On Baby with Because along for third, 2-3/4 lengths behind the victor. Meanwhile, Morning Twilight, a stakes winner as a 2-year-old at Remington for trainer Steve Asmussen, jumped into the cool night sky as she left the gate, spotting the field too much real estate to recover once she found her stride, finishing last as the heavy 4-5 wagering favorite.
Patsy R (7-2 odds) paid $9.20 to win, $5.40 to place, and $5.20 to show.
Patsy R won her second race in a row in Oklahoma City and made her third trip to the winner’s circle in her last four starts. The first of the trio of wins came at Will Rogers Downs in Claremore on May 11 when she broke her maiden status, before getting a long vacation before Remington Park’s meet started.
The daughter of Can the Man (Into Mischief), out of the Kipling mare Gotagogotagogotago, is trained by Kari Craddock for owners Hal Browning and David Faulkner of Dallas, Texas who also bred her in Oklahoma. Patsy R earned $25,813 for that pair and improved her lifetime record to eight starts, three wins, three seconds and one third for $84,902 in her bankroll.
