Friday @ Remington Park

It's closing weekend of the Quarter Horse meet at Remington Park and I'm looking forward to visiting the Oklahoma track for the first time. It's been on my list of tracks to visit for a long time. Friday's card is a very competitive 12-race program that features plenty of full fields and great betting opportunities.

Saturday's card is a big one. Eight stakes highlight the 12-race program which includes the GI Speedhorse Graham Paint & Appaloosa Futurity, The GI Remington Park Invitational Championship, and The GI $1.2-Million Heritage Place Futurity. Stay tuned to the blog for my picks for the Saturday card.

First things first, let's try to get some winners tonight:

Race 1:  10-6-3

#10 Royal Snowman is already a two-time futurity qualifer and has been close to breaking his maiden in a couple of starts. He’s getting some class relief today and his outside post should allow him to get a clear running path.

Race 2:  7-1-3

#7 CI Charlies Angel looked like a completely new horse in his first start under this trainer when posting a powerful win by over two lengths at this same distance in a solid final time. A repeat effort should get it done.

Race 3:  8-2-9

#8 Plenty O Toole B made a big improvement in her first start of 2015 when missing by a head at odds of 30-1 at a slightly higher level. She will be tough to beat if she improves again off of that effort.

Race 4:  6-10-9

#6 Peves Ivory Jack finished a good second last time out when finishing over a length clear of the third place finisher. The winner of that event returned to win again in his next start.

Race 5:  2-10-8

#2 Eye Party Late shows a pair of good workouts in preparation for her first start of 2015 while taking a drop in class from the allowance ranks to this claiming level. The freshening and the drop in class might be all that she needs to defeat this group.

Race 6:  9-5-1

#9 Gee Whit was sharp at the end of her 2014 campaign but has failed to repeat some of those efforts this year as a 3-year-old. The outside post, the drop in class, and the cut back in distance might be enough to get her back on track.

Race 7:  9-4-7

#9 One Ivory Sign is only one of three runners in this field of ten that owns racing experience. I give him the slight edge because he has shown good early speed and has broken near the leaders in both of his starts.

Race 8:  3-7-5

#3 Little Man Rockin won with speed to space in his maiden-breaking score after having a dissapointing outing in the Oklahoma Futurity. The extra 30-yards seemed to have helped him and it looks like he is going in the right direction. His trainer his having a solid meet with a limited amount of starters.

Race 9:  10-3-1

#10 Bv Fearless gets the slight nod from me just because she has been facing tougher fields in her previous two starts. This fields lacks consistency so I would suggest going deep in the pick 4.

Race 10:  9-4-3

#9 Secretive Jess fired career-best performance in 2015 including a nice win last time out at a slightly longer distance. The key for her will be to break on top. She has won three of her last five starts and those have been when she’s been first out of the gate.

Race 11:  2-8-9

#2 Mr Jo Eagle doesn’t own some of the class that his rivals bring to the table but he does bring some sharp running lines to this event. He likes this track and owns two wins from four starts at this distance. His trainer is winning at a high level of 40 percent.

Race 12:  1-8-5

#1 Shez Spitin Diamons posted a gutsy win in her first start of 2015 under this new trainer and that was also the first time this jockey had been aboard. She’s facing the next logical level in racing conditions so a repeat effort should have her in the mix for the win.
I watch horses run around.
