OKLAHOMA CITY – Daybreak Dreamer’s last two racing attempts happened to fall on nights when there was a delay in the action at Remington Park. On both occasions, the 4-year-old has been victorious. A score in Saturday’s $34,125 allowance event moved his winning streak to two.


Owned by Gary Dean of Oklahoma City and trained by Kari Craddock, Daybreak Dreamer has been ridden in both wins by Cliff Berry. On Oct. 10, Remington Park endured a severe thunderstorm with heavy lightning targeting the racetrack property that caused a delay just prior to a Daybreak Dreamer victory. Saturday night, the track lighting system was reluctant to illuminate after the first race had been conducted. After a 35-minute delay, the lights came on and the race card continued.


Daybreak Dreamer didn’t race until the seventh event of the night but was ready to run when he was led to the starting gate to go 5-1/2 furlongs. Sitting 3-1/2 lengths behind the pace-setting and even-money wagering favorite Hawks Nest, Daybreak Dreamer progressed to the lead in the final 100 yards. He passed Hawks Nest with ease while going on to win by 3-1/4 lengths in 1:02.88 over a fast track.


Away at 2-1 odds in the betting, Daybreak Dreamer paid $6.20 to win, $2.80 to place and $2.10 to show. The Rock Rolls rallied for second to pay $3.80 to place and $2.20 to show. Hawks Nest faded to third and paid $2.10 to show.


The victory was the fourth from seven career attempts for Daybreak Dreamer, an Oklahoma-bred son of Woke Up Dreamin from the Stop The Music mare Balalaika. The second consecutive win was worth $22,074 for Daybreak Dreamer who has now earned $79,107 overall.


Remington Park’s Thoroughbred season continues Wednesday thru Saturday, Oct. 29 thru Nov. 1. The first race is at 7pm nightly, except for a special 1:30pm start on Saturday, Nov. 1 when Remington Park races early with the simulcast of the Breeders’ Cup World Championships featured throughout the afternoon.
