REMINGTON PARK TRACK OPENS FOR TRAINING, CRAWFORD HORSES OUT FIRST
A cloudy and cool morning with temperatures in the low 40s greeted the initial training session of 2023 as Remington Park opened the racing surface. Trainer Clint Crawford was first on the track with a pair of horses including a stakes winner from a year ago.
FDD Cloud, winner of the $100,000 Heritage Place Juvenile in 2022 at Remington Park, moved to the track under jockey Jorge Torres. The now 3-year-old gelding by FDD Going Grand from the Jess Elie mare A Noble Jess Elie, won a pair of races in Oklahoma City a year ago. He broke his maiden status in his career debut, in addition to his Heritage Place Juvenile score. The Texas-bred is owned by Preston Cloud of Sallisaw, Okla.
Completing the first pair of horses for Crawford was Dashin Approach, a 4-year-old gelding by Mr PYC To You from the Panther Mountain broodmare Panther Not A Kitty. Owned by George and Peggy Cobb of Yukon, Okla., the New Mexico-bred Dashin Approach seeks his first victory at Remington Park. He has three career wins, all in New Mexico including victory in the $113,000 New Mexico Breeders’ Futurity at Sunray Park in 2021.
