Another Desire, a 5-year-old daughter of Desirio trained by Jose Gamez for owners Denis and Julie Schoenhofer, was named horse of the meet at Will Rogers Downs, which ended its 28-day fall mixed-breed meet on November 12.
Another Desire won all three of her starts at Will Rogers Downs, all against either starter allowance or claiming company. She also recorded the meet's fastest 300-yard time, :15.242.
A total of $21.9 million was wagered during the fall and spring seasons at Will Rogers Downs. The spring meet features Thoroughbred racing. The facility, which is located in Claremore, Oklahoma, is currently undergoing $3.5 million in renovations.
Rick Robinson was the meet's leading trainer with 25 wins, including two stakes, from 57 starters. Agustin Silva and Mario Delgado each rode 43 winners to lead all jockeys. Darling Farms won eight races, one more than the Schoenhofers, to take down top owner honors.
“The fall meet at Will Rogers Downs was highlighted by some impressive stakes winners in mostly mild and warm weather for the season,” said track racing secretary, announcer, and morning-line maker John Lies. “We witnessed a dominating showing by our leading trainer and enjoyed an exciting race to the wire from our two leading jockeys, who finished in a tie on closing day. With respectable overall field size, we were happy with the horsemen’s participation.”
