OKLAHOMA CITY – Easy Nights moved back to the main Remington Park surface for her Friday night romp in a $38,250 allowance for Oklahoma-breds. Jockey Cliff Berry guided her as she drew off to a 5-1/4 length score.


Owned and bred by Edward Anthony of Broken Arrow, Okla. and trained by Boyd Caster, Easy Nights pressed the pace set by Justsignthecheck through the first six furlongs of the 1 mile-70 yards. Coming off the second turn, Berry moved Easy Nights for the lead and she responded, taking over at the top of the stretch and putting her eight female rivals away. Easy Nights handled the distance in 1:44.08 over a fast track.


Away at 4-1odds in the wagering, Easy Nights paid $10.20 to win, $3.40 to place and $2.80 to show. Lingering Smoke was the heavy wagering favorite at 4-5 odds. She labored in second to pay $2.40 to place and $2.10 to show. Justsignthecheck held on for third to return $5 to show.


The win was the second from six career starts for Easy Nights, a 3-year-old filly by past Remington Park champion Burbank from the Dynaformer mare Dyna D. It was her first triumph in Oklahoma City, earning $21,972 to move her lifetime money to $31,499.


Jockey Colby Hernandez, riding at Remington Park for the first time this week, posted three consecutive wins Friday in races three thru five, all for trainer Karl Broberg. Unbridled Venture ($12.40 to win) in race three, Only Liquor ($8.20) in race four and Bucking Thunder ($6.60) in race five, made the triples possible.
