Warlock Doc has raced four times this meet on the turf at Remington Park and has won three times, including in Thursday night’s featured allowance race.

All three of this 3-year-old gelding’s wins came under allowance conditions. The only time he didn’t win was on Sept. 9 when he ran second to Newscaster at 1-1/16th miles greensward. The two met again Thursday night in the $36,300 allowance race at one mile on the lawn and Newscaster couldn’t run him down this time. In fact, he ran third, with He’s a Suitor splitting them in second.

In his usual fashion, Warlock Doc cruised to the lead out of the gate and never looked back, drawing away to a 3-1/2 lengths win. Despite his dominance on the grass, Warlock Doc was sent off at 7-2 odds and paid $9 to win, $5.20 to place and $3.60 to show. Jockey Lane Luzzi rode him perfectly, leaving himself plenty of horse in the stretch when the closers started cutting into the lead. The gate-to-wire style has led him to the three victories. His other two wins this season came at the similar distance of 7-1/2 furlongs. Luzzi has been aboard for all three trips to the winner’s circle here.

Trainer Danny Pish has had Warlock Doc in top form and fitness this meet after a less than stellar performance in Texas this spring and summer. The gelded son of Jack Milton, out of the Horse Chestnut (SAF) mare Destiny’s Reward, did not win a race from March-June at Sam Houston Race Park in Houston and Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie, Texas.

The winner earned $21,525 for owner Dennis Foster of Cle Elm, Wash., and improved his record to 13 starts, four wins, three seconds and one third for $121,572 in his bankroll. His record on the grass at Remington Park now is four starts, three wins and one second for $70,455.

Making every pole a winning one, Warlock Doc set fractions of :23.50 for the first quarter-mile, :46.33 for the half-mile, 1:10.16 for three quarters of a mile and 1:22.60 for seven-eighths of a mile. He was bred in Kentucky by Hurstland Farm, James H. Greene Jr., and Courtney O’Brien. He’s a Suitor (10-1) beat Newscaster (7-2) by a head for second. The 5-2 post-time favorite, Alex Joon, checked in fifth.

Racing continues this week on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 22-23, with the first race nightly at 7:07pm-Central.
