Finn McOol, a California-bred son of champion KVN Corona, was the fastest Quarter Horse from the 10 training races contested Thursday at Remington Park.

Despite breaking a step slowly, Finn McOol won the seventh race by a head while covering 250 yards in :13.584, a clocking aided by a reported 18-mph tail wind. Roman Cruz rode the brown gelding for trainer Dee Keener.

Finn McOol was bred by J. Garvan Kelly and J. Lloyd Yother. The gelding is out of Fenian Faith, a winning and multiple graded stakes placed homebred daughter of world champion Apollitical Jess and a full sister to graded stakes winner and 2016 All American Derby (G1) runner-up Celtic Emblem. His second dam, the homebred Tres Seis mare Three Green Leaves, won the '07 John Deere Juvenile Challenge Championship (G2) at Los Alamitos.

Finn McOol was purchased by Pat Duggins for $37,000 at last year's Ruidoso Select Yearling Sale.

Meanwhile, horses trained by Trey Wood won eight of the 10 schooling races. Wood entered a total of 11 horses.

"I really thought we had a bunch of good ones in today," Wood said.
