SHE’S ALL WOLFE STARTING TO REMIND FANS OF MAMA, MILLIONAIRE SHE’S ALL IN, WITH SCORE IN OKLAHOMA STALLION STAKES FILLIES DIVISION
The first thing that comes to mind when one watches She’s All Wolfe win is whether she can be as good as her millionaire mother, She’s All In, was in her career. She’s All Wolfe won the $50,000 Oklahoma Stallion Stakes fillies division Friday night at Remington Park after a hard-fought stretch battle with Special Treasure.
Owned and bred in Oklahoma by Dr. Robert Zoellner of Tulsa, She’s All Wolfe has already impressed him. “It’s funny, she’s actually better than her mom was at this age. She’s All In, it took her two tries at Will Rogers Downs to win a maiden-claiming $15,000 race,” Zoellner noted. “Let that sink in. So if She’s All Wolfe’s light switch suddenly turns on like She’s All In’s did, you can only imagine how good she could be.”
She’s All In wound up winning a graded stakes race at Hawthorne, a stakes race at Louisiana Downs and the Oklahoma Classics Distaff at Remington Park four times from 2010-2013, retiring with $1,102,489. A member of the Oklahoma Horse Racing Hall of Fame at Remington Park, She’s All In was also owned and bred by Zoellner.
She’s All Wolfe won $30,000 Friday night and now has won four times in nine races for a total of $138,185 in her wallet. It took every inch of the stretch for her to beat longshot Special Treasure, coming up a winner by a neck. She might have won by even more if not for one minor incident.
“It was a little closer than we thought,” trainer Donnie Von Hemel said, laughing, “but (jockey) Richard (Eramia) might not want me to mention this, but he lost his stick (whip) during the race. But (winning by) an inch is as good as a mile. I asked him when he got back where he lost it and he said, ‘Oh, about the eighth-pole.’ ”
Von Hemel and Zoellner both pointed out how tough She’s All Wolfe’s competition at Oaklawn Park was this spring in Hot Springs, Ark.
“We caught Shedaresthedevil in an optional-allowance claiming race at Oaklawn and she went on to win the Kentucky Oaks,” said Zoellner. “Oaklawn is tougher than battery acid.”
“We got hooked up real tough this spring,” said Von Hemel. “She’s been pretty consistent and is still learning.”
On Friday night, She’s All Wolfe, the 2-5 betting favorite, was still 10 lengths back at the half-mile mark before she began her race. At the top of the stretch, she had caught Special Treasure, and that 12-1 longshot fought hard to the wire before giving way. Cherokee Cowgirl was a distant third, another 6-1/2 lengths behind the top two.
She’s All Wolfe covered the seven furlongs in the exact same time as the colts and geldings did earlier Friday, in 1:24.16 seconds on the muddy main track. She was the beneficiary of solid early fractions of :22.29 for the first quarter-mile, :44.99 for the half-mile and 1:10.53 for three-quarters of a mile. She paid $2.80, $2.20 and $2.10 to win, place and show.
