EC Revenge, a brown son of Hes Relentless owned by Elizabeth Logan of Haskell, Oklahoma, sprinted to a clear one-length victory in Saturday’s $396,650 Oklahoma Futurity (G2) at Remington Park.
Ridden by James Flores for trainer Dee Keener, EC Revenge covered 300 yards in :15.307. The gelding earned a 93 speed index and the $158,660 winner’s share of the purse from his second win in as many outs.
EC Revenge made his debut with a head victory in the seventh of 12 Oklahoma Futurity trials on March 9, and he posted the fastest qualifying time of :15.500. The gelding was bred in Oklahoma by William E. Smith, and he was a $25,000 buy at last year’s Heritage Place Yearling Sale in Oklahoma City.
EC Revenge is out of SC Pamilla, an unraced homebred 9-year-old daughter of the Holland Ease stallion Corona Cartel. His second dam, the Mr Jess Perry mare First Prize Robin, won the 2006 Remington Park Futurity (G1) and was a finalist in that season’s Ruidoso Futurity (G1).
Pepper Ryan finished second and was followed by Southern Fast Succes, Always Charging, DF Zookie Cookie, Rrelentless, Clean Brew, TF Kates TLC, Separate Party, and Sizzling Fajita.
The $50,000 Oklahoma Juvenile was won by FMM Rocking Cartel at longshot odds of 23-1 on Saturday, March 23 at Remington Park.
Owned and bred in Texas by Rancho El Porvenir of Joshua, Texas, FMM Rocking Cartel is trained by Roberto Duenes and was ridden by Gaspar Garcia. The 2-year-old gelding handled 300 yards over a fast track in :15.649, defeating She Can Dash Fast by a nose with Volcom Prince in third, a head behind the winner.
FMM Rocking Cartel won for the first time in just two attempts. The winner’s share of $20,830 moved his total earnings to $22,758. He is a son of Teller Ima Rockstar from the Captain Courage mare Sexy Courage.
The Oklahoma Juvenile is conducted for 2-year-olds who competed in trials for the Oklahoma Futurity on March 9 but did not make the final.
