TUT’S REVENGE RUNS HIS WINNING STREAK TO FOUR IN A ROW WITH WIN IN TURF FEATURE AT REMINGTON

Tut’s Revenge had his picture taken in the winner’s circle for the fourth time in a row, taking the featured allowance race on the turf at Remington Park on Friday night.

This 4-year-old gelding is the kind of horse every trainer would like to have in their barns. The son of Eskendereya, out of the Pleasantly Perfect mare Cat Five’ O, has won with three different jockeys in this win streak. Tut’s Revenge has won on the turf at two different distances, won on an off main track in the other win and won at several class levels. In Friday night’s 7-1/2 furlongs race on the grass, he faced open allowance company. In his three wins prior at Canterbury Park in Minnesota, he beat allowance-optional claiming horses twice and took down a stakes trophy in the $75,000 Mystic Lake Mile.

The Tut’s Revenge winning streak began June 30 and has stretched to September 4. His last loss was at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky., on June 13. Tut’s Revenge is two-for-two now at 7-1/2 furlongs and is two-for-three on the lawn.

Jockey Richard Eramia sent Tut’s Revenge to the lead and made every pole a winning one, finishing one length ahead of Sunlit Song at the wire. The 7-5 wagering favorite, Attentive, was another four lengths back in third. Tut’s Revenge went off at a generous 2-1 price for a horse on this kind of winning skein. Eramia brought him back to the winner’s circle for owner Claim To Fame Stable of Council Bluffs, Iowa, and trainer Clinton Stuart.

The owners pocketed $20,349 of the $34,000 purse and Tut’s Revenge ran his lifetime record to 18 starts, six wins, one second and two thirds for a bankroll of $222,879. Winning time for the race was 1:32.26 over the firm going.

Live racing continues Saturday night with nine races on tap beginning with a first post of 7:07pm. Fans may also watch and wager on the Kentucky Derby, which has a post time of 6:01pm locally. All times are Central.
