STUART TO SEND HOTASAPISTOL IN REMINGTON PARK OAKS, PAIGE ANNE HAS ARRIVED
The Grade 3, $100,000 Remington Park Oaks tops the undercard for Oklahoma Derby Sunday, Sept. 27. The 1-1/16 miles main track event will be drawn in the track racing office on Wednesday morning.
Clinton Stuart, a mainstay at Remington Park throughout the track’s history, is expected to enter Hotasapistol in the oaks. The 3-year-old filly by Flat Out from the Dayjur mare Alacazar would make her first attempt away from Canterbury Park in Shakopee, Minn.
Owned by Gary and Brenda Bergsrud, Hotasapistol has made eight starts in her career, three as a juvenile and five this summer, all in Minnesota-bred company at Canterbury. The winner of the $100,000 Minnesota Oaks on Aug. 19, Hotasapistol put in her first local work for the Remington Park Oaks on Monday, Sept. 21. She went a half-mile in :49.72, handily, on a fast track.
Stuart is seeking his second Remington Park Oaks victory. He saddled standout War Thief to win the 1995 oaks, when it was contested at 1-1/16 miles over the turf.
Arrived on Monday at Remington Park, she will make her first start outside of California in the Remington Park Oaks. Most recently, she was third in the Grade 3, $100,000 Torrey Pines at Del Mar on Aug. 22.
A daughter of Take Charge Indy from the Milwaukee Brew mare Forbidden, Paige Anne worked at Santa Anita on Sunday, Sept. 20, prior to traveling to Oklahoma City. She moved a half-mile in :50.1 handily on a fast track for trainer Simon Callaghan.
Remington Park racing continues Wednesday thru Sunday, Sept. 23-27. The first race is 7:07pm Wednesday thru Saturday. The special Sunday afternoon program, featuring the Remington Park Oaks and the Grade 3 Oklahoma Derby, is set for 3pm. All times are Central.
