Big Saturday Night at Remington Park
Remington Park in Oklahoma City will host a action-packed night of Quarter Horse racing on Saturday, March 25. Several stakes will be contested, highlighted by the $420,000 Oklahoma Futurity. The finalists earned their positions in the starting gate as the ten fastest qualifiers from 15 trials run on March 12.
Juveniles to watch include talented filly, #3 Coronas First Diva is by Corona Cartel, a sire who consistently ranks in the top of sires of 2-year-old money earners, and out of Spit Curl Diva, the 2011 champion aged mare. #5 Feature Moonflash is the third-fastest qualifier and his connections, trainer Eddie Willis and jockey Jimmy Brooks are always potent at Remington Park. Fastest qualifier #7 KG Johnny B Good is trained by Jonathan Perry, and football fans might want to add #10 Gronkowski to their wagers. He will be ridden y Raul Ramirez, Jr., who shipped his tack from Louisiana to ride the Oklahoma meet this season.
The race is carded as Remington’s 11th race on Saturday, March 25. Fifteen trials were contested on March 12 to determine the 10 fastest qualifiers, who each have just one start to their names.
With exactly one race to analyze in the past performances, handicappers will need to rely on their sleuthing skills to uncover more clues to find a winner. The trials provide a great place to start with your race analysis. The qualifiers all ran the same distance, and their times rank them from fastest qualifier to 10th-fastest. With 15 trials contested, conditions can change. Although there was no wind for the trials to the Oklahoma Futurity, making sure there was not a wind shift or other factors that could contribute to a slower time can be valuable information.
