Kuhl Wave takes Mr Master Bug Stakes on Sunday card.

April 21, 2013

Horses that competed in trials for the Remington Park Oklahoma-bred Futurity (R) but did not make the lucrative final on Saturday night had their opportunity for a big-money stakes in Sunday’s $100,000 Remington Park Juvenile (R). Wagon Tales took command halfway through the 330-yard race, drawing away to win by a half-length.

Owned by JNB Enterprises, LLC of Mission, Texas, and trained by Judd Kearl, Wagon Tales was ridden to the win by Rodrigo Vallejo. The colt crossed the finish in :16.834 over the fast track. Champion Huddle won the photo for place by a head over Stolin Credits.

Wagon Tales was 9-1 in the wagering and paid $21.40 to win, $11 to place and $5.40 to show. Champion Huddle returned $13 to place and $5.60 to show. Stolin Credits paid $7.20 to show. Nudi Suit was the beaten wagering favorite at 2-1 odds, finishing fourth.

Wagon Tales is an Oklahoma-bred by PYC Paint Your Wagon from the Shazoom mare Signs Zoomer and was bred in state by The Mixer Ranch. The first win of his career from just two starts, the Remington Park Juvenile was worth $40,000 and makes the overall money for Wagon Tales $43,446.

Mr Master Bug Stakes
Oklahoma-bred 3-year-olds battled 350 yards in Sunday’s $52,500 Mr Master Bug Stakes (R) with Kuhl Wave pulling away to a half-length score.

Owned by Miguel Banuelos of Wichita, Kansas, and trained by Jose Aguilera, Kuhl Wave won his second race of the season and first stakes event. Ridden by Raul Gutierrez, Kuhl Wave crossed the finish in :17.455 with Slew Of Success second and Send A Candy Guy, part of the favored 5-2 wagering entry with Paint The Candy Lane, third.

Kuhl Wave left the starting gate at 5-1 odds and paid $13.40 to win, $6.60 to place and $5 to show. Slew Of Success returned $6.60 to place and $4.20 to show. Send A Candy Guy paid $2.80 to show.

The win was the third from 13 career starts for Kuhl Wave, a filly by Wave Carver from the Shazoom mare Shazooms Doll. The $30,730 winner’s check nearly doubled the career earnings of Kuhl Wave to $62,490.

Kuhl Wave was bred in Oklahoma by Tom Bradbury and Marvin Willhite.

The Mr Master Bug Stakes is named after the 1982 All American Futurity (G1) winner from Oklahoma who was a three-time champion and earner of nearly $1.8 million.
