Trainer Rodney Reed has two of the three fastest qualifiers to the $370,800 Oklahoma Futurity (G2) and trainer Eddie Willis saddles half of the 10-horse field in the $220,000 Oklahoma Derby on Saturday night at Remington Park.
Reed, known for his success in early season futurities, is living up to that reputation with fastest-qualifier Apolitical Pac (Apollitical Jess-Kpax by First Down Dash) and third-fastest qualifier First Prize Parisa (Carters Cartel-First Prize Paris by Mr Jess Perry).
Victory Farms’ Apolitical Pac led the 15 trials on March 8 when she impressed with a 1 1/2-length win in the fourth heat, with a time of :15.284 for 300 yards. That time stood up as the top time throughout the remaining trials.
It was a good night for freshman sire and 2010 world champion Apollitical Jess. He sired Apolitical Pac and also eighth-fastest qualifier Jo Chrome, out of champion Joanna Kate.
