QUICK QUICK QUICK PROVES TO BE HEAD QUICKER TO WIRE THAN SHE’S ALL WOLFE IN REMINGTON PARK FEATURE
When the feature race came off the turf Thursday night to be run on the main track, it appeared multiple stakes winner She’s All Wolfe, a main-track only entrant, might have the advantage.
It looked even more like that when Quick Quick Quick engaged in a speed duel with Terra’s Angel for more than half of the one-mile race over a good track with 3-5 betting favorite Alternative Slew dwelt well back in the pack during the early part of the race. But Quick Quick Quick dispatched of Terra’s Angel and held on for dear life as She’s All Wolfe rolled up on her like she was going to fly by and leave her in her wake. When Quick Quick Quick saw her coming, however, the 6-year-old mare dug in like a coal miner in need of a paycheck and would not quit.
She’s All Wolfe actually passed Quick Quick Quick by a half-length in the stretch but gave it all back in the late going and lost by a head to the winner. Jockey Stewart Elliott did not give up when his mount, Quick Quick Quick, was passed. He asked for more and the daughter of Tiago, out of the Cape Town mare Quick Town, answered the call.
Quick Quick Quick was sent off as the 9-2 third favorite and paid $11.60, $5 and $2.20 across the board. She is owned by Richard and Karen Boyer and Rick Rinn of Bastrop, Texas. The mare was bred in Kentucky by Mary Lou Whitney Stables. Trainer J.R. Caldwell has sent Quick Quick Quick out to two wins in a row since coming off a June to September layoff. She won an open allowance race on the grass on Sept. 18, winning at 5 furlongs. Talk about versatility. She won at one mile on Wednesday over the main track that had been soaked with rain the past couple of days. Short, long, grass, wet dirt surface, it doesn’t matter to her. She just wants to win and proved it to the wire.
Quick Quick Quick set every early fraction until mid-stretch. The interior times for the race were :24.36 seconds for the quarter-mile, :48.17 for the half-mile, 1:12.90 for three quarters of a mile and 1:25.76 for 7 furlongs. They weren’t exactly blistering fractions, but they came on a track that was drying out and had to be tiring.
Finishing third, 7-1/4 lengths back of She’s All Wolfe, was Alternative Slew, another multiple stakes winner, but has seen most of her impressive wins come on the lawn.
Quick Quick Quick earned $23,349 from the $43,388 total purse under allowance-optional claiming $50,000 conditions. She now boasts career earnings of $382,277 from 37 lifetime starts, with nine wins, nine seconds and two thirds.
