Double A Ranch's She Looks Racy won the sixth of eight Oklahoma Derby (G3) trials on Sunday and posted the fastest qualifying time for the March 26, $280,000 final.
Ridden by Yordanis Amaro for trainer Kelli Martin, She Looks Racy covered 350 yards in :17.228 while defeating non-qualifier Flash N Bling by 1 1/2 lengths. The First Down Dash filly's win was her fifth in seven outs, and it pushed her earnings to $91,409.
She Looks Racy was coming off of a Hialeah Park campaign in which she won the Mockingbird Stakes on January 3 and Biscayne Stakes on January 31. The filly was bred in Texas by Johnny Trotter and Burnett Ranches, and her resume includes a third-place finish in last year's Grade 1, 400-yard Dash For Cash Futurity at Lone Star Park.
Second-fastest qualifier Big Lew won the first heat by 1 1/2 lengths for owner Reliance Ranches LLC. Jimmy Dean Brooks rode the graded stakes placed Corona Cartel colt for trainer Eddie Willis.
