TUT’S REVENGE WINS FOR SIXTH TIME IN LAST SEVEN STARTS, THREE OF THOSE AT REMINGTON PARK
Tut’s Revenge is one neck away from having a seven-race win streak, winning the featured allowance race at one mile on the turf Monday at Remington Park.
The 4-year-old gelding won for the sixth time in his last seven tries, including three at Remington Park on the grass this meet when he finished three lengths ahead in a field of six as the heavy wagering favorite at 1-2 odds. If not for some bad luck at the wire in the $60,000 Remington Green on Sept. 27 here, Tut’s Revenge would have been perfect in his last seven attempts. A head-bob in the Green left him a neck back of the victorious Sunlit Song in that stakes race. His three other wins in this run of success came at Canterbury Park prior to moving to Oklahoma City for the fall.
Tut’s Revenge is a gelded son of Eskendereya, out of the Pleasantly Perfect mare Cat Five’ O, is now three-for-four on the Remington turf for owner Claim to Fame Stable out of Council Bluffs, Iowa., and trainer Clinton Stuart of Edmond, Okla.
Leading rider David Cabrera has been up for this horse’s last two victories. Tut’s Revenge beat Don’task Don’ttell (3-1), who had a streak of his own going out of Steve Asmussen’s barn. That 6-year-old gelded son of To Honor and Serve, out of the Horse Chestnut (SAF) mare Askbut I Won’ttell, had won six in a row greensward at three tracks, Kentucky Downs, Lone Star Park and Fair Grounds. He was another 1-1/4 lengths in front of third-place Astounding (10-1).
Cabrera got to the immediate lead out of the gate and milked it, making every pole a winning one, setting fractions of :25.30 for the first quarter-mile, :50.27 for the half-mile, 1:14.32 after three-quarters of a mile furlongs and 1:25.81 at seven-eighths of a mile. The winning time was 1:37.57 over the course labeled good.
Tut’s Revenge paid $3 to win, $2.10 to place and $2.10 to show.
Tut’s Revenge earned $20,349 in the open allowance race for 3-year-olds and older from the total purse of $34,000. He improved to 21 starts, eight wins, two seconds and two thirds for $275,424 in his lifetime bankroll.
