Trademarque has predominantly been a 110-yard specialist in her last four starts, but she showed she can win at 250 yards Thursday night at Remington Park, scoring the featured allowance race at 9-1 odds.

This 4-year-old longshot mare jumped out of the gate with lightning force under jockey Jonathan Dominguez while the winningest horse in the race, Dickey Bob (5-2), had trouble coming out of the gate for the second time in four tries this meet. The 9-year-old 28-time winner let his feet get out from under him again Thursday after going completely nose-in-the-dirt to his knees in his first out this meet, and finishing last, 9-1/2 lengths behind the field in another 250-yard race. He wound up in last place again this time after his bobble and Trademarque took advantage. She got the jump on 2-1 favorite Sheslosthatluvnfeeln as well and hit the wire a half-length in front of runner-up Hey Soul Sistr (7-1). Sheslosthatluvnfeeln checked in third, another nose behind.

Trademarque, a daughter of Duponte, out of the Feature Mr Jess mare Featuring Jessie, won for the fifth time in 25 starts and earned $20,988 for owner Rafael Haros of Mansfield, Texas. She is trained by Juvenal Licona-Vazquez and was bred in Oklahoma by Bobby Cox. She improved her record to 25-5-6-4 with earnings of $110,501. That’s not too shabby for a horse that was purchased for $7,700 at the 2020 Heritage Place Winter Mixed Sale.

Trademarque paid $21.80 to win, $12.80 to place and $7.60 to show across the board. Her running time was :13.154 for a speed-index of 97 over the fast track.

It’s not that surprising that the betting public let Trademarque off at such generous odds despite the fact she had lost by only a half-length her last time at 250 yards on March 7. It was understandable because she had only won one-of-seven attempts at 250 yards and had only won just one of nine starts at Remington Park. She had, however, run in the money (first, second or third) in eight-of-nine in Oklahoma City.
