SUMMER REVOLUTION DROPS FROM DAVID VANCE STAKES TO FEATURE ALLOWANCE TO SCORE
The drop in class was all Summer Revolution needed to make his second outing at Remington Park this meet a winning one in the featured allowance race at one mile on the fast main track Wednesday night.
This 7-year-old gelded son of Summer Bird, out of the Boston Harbor mare Revolutionary Act, sat just off the pace of the front-running Caribbean (AUS), in mid-pack, and pounced at the top of the stretch, passing two horses to get to the wire first at 4-1 odds. Jockey Sophie Doyle sat patiently down the backstretch aboard Summer Revolution as Caribbean set fractions of :23.71 seconds for the opening quarter-mile, :47.09 for the half-mile and 1:11.51 seconds for three-quarters of a mile. That’s when Summer Revolution took over and finished the race in 1:24.36 for seven-eighths of a mile and stopping the timer in 1:37.50.
Summer Revolution finished 2-3/4 lengths in front of the longest shot in the field, Catdaddy (24-1), who was another nose ahead of third-place All West (9-1). The post-time favorite, Aqwaam (8-5), only beat one horse in the field of seven. Caribbean was fifth.
Summer Revolution, owned by Danny Caldwell of Poteau, Okla., Remington Park’s all-time winningest owner, and trained by Oscar Flores, paid $10 to win, $5.20 to place and $4 to show. The Summer Revolution-Catdaddy exacta returned $178.60 for a $2 play.
Summer Revolution was bred in Kentucky by Camelia Casby. He won $18,198 from the $30,500 purse and improved his career record to 24 starts, eight wins, four seconds and two thirds for $316,590 in his bankroll.
