Win Rabbits Fly, a 7-year-old Fly Jess Fly gelding owned and trained by Miguel Banuelos of Wichita, Kansas, broke this track's 250-yard mark in the $70,000 Mighty Deck Three Stakes (R) for Oklahoma-breds on Sunday.
Win Rabbits Fly stopped the timer in :12.839 under jockey Daniel Torres, earning a 107 speed index and breaking by 10/1000ths of a second the previous record set by Freighttrain B on April 24, 2011. The gelding's margin of victory was a half of a length from 7-5 choice Sam Crow.
"He left really well, like he usually does," Torres said. "He was rolling the farther they went."
Win Rabbits Fly was bred by Jackie L. Morgan. The gelding has won 15 of 34 races, and he earned $39,000 from the Mighty Deck Three purse to boost his bankroll to $264,880.
Win Rabbits Fly has won two of his 11 starts at Remington Park, including last year's 350-yard, $70,000 Mr Jet Moore Stakes (RG3) for state-breds.
This Candys Awesome, Sudden Separation, Bye Byefreighttrain, The Charm Of Corona, Llano Cartel, This Wagons Okay, BP Cartels Policy, and Load Your Guns completed the order of finish.
