STAKES-PLACED FAST BREAKIN CASH TAKES FEATURED ALLOWANCE RACE
Fast Breakin Cash has been on the verge of breaking through as a stakes winner at Remington Park the past two meets. However, he has been chasing Oklahoma’s Horse of the Year Welder in his last two attempts.
Dropping back to allowance conditions for the first time since August was the key to getting this 3-year-old back to the winner’s circle Thursday night for owner-trainer C.R. Trout of Edmond, Okla. Fast Breakin Cash, a gelded son of Yes It’s True, out of the Forestry mare Fast N Fine Lookin, finished only 4-1/4 lengths back of track-record holder Welder last time out in the Oklahoma Classics Sprint on Oct. 18.
With no champion horse to beat on Thursday night, Fast Breakin Cash, under jockey Stewart Elliott held on by three-quarters of a length in this allowance race for horses that had never won a race other than maiden, claiming, starter or state-bred races or they could be non-winners of two career races. This gelding had won at the allowance non-winners of 1x before, but because that win was in a race for Oklahoma-bred, he was still eligible for tonight’s feature.
Fast Breakin Cash was the wagering favorite at 1-2 odds, but had to hold off the charge of runner-up Tap Master, who was making a strong run in attempting a mild upset. That horse was four lengths ahead of the third-place finisher Kats Second Silver. Fast Breakin Cash, bred in Oklahoma by Trout, sat sixth down the backstretch and rallied down the middle of the track six-wide for the victory. Trout pocketed $24,820 from the purse of $38,675 and Fast Breakin Cash improved to seven starts, three wins, two seconds and one third for a bankroll of $134,423. Four times Fast Breakin Cash has raced in stakes-company, finishing second twice, third once and fourth once.
The winning time for the 6-1/2 furlongs was 1:17.71 seconds as he chased interior fractions of :22.54 for the quarter-mile, :45.98 for the half-mile and 1:11.23 for three-quarters of a mile. Fast Breakin Cash had made the lead by the quarter pole, he paid $3 to win, $2.20 to place and $2.10 to show.
No one had a unique Sooner 6ix ticket on Thursday, so the carryover for Friday’s races in the pick six pool is $53,577.71. There were multiple tickets that had six-of-six correctly selected, and those bettors were paid $971.26 each in the Sooner 6ix bet.
Live racing continues Friday with a first post time of 7 p.m.-Central with nine races scheduled.
