OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma-breds, 3-years-old and older, were featured in a $38,250 allowance Wednesday at Remington Park. Lion Of Lone Oak rallied with a strong and wide move into the stretch, pulling clear to triumph.


Owned by Danny Caldwell of Poteau, Okla. and trained by Federico Villafranco, Lion Of Lone Oak was ridden by Ramon Vazquez. A 4-year-old gelding, Lion Of Lone Oak moved around rivals coming off the lone turn of the 6-1/2 furlongs, rolling by the battling front-runners before crossing the finish in 1:16.65 over a fast track. Johnmack Daddy closed from the back of the field of 10 to gain second, defeated by 1-1/2 lengths. Stormtoremember grabbed the lead briefly at the top of the stretch before settling for third.


At 5-2 odds in the wagering, Lion Of Lone Oak paid $7 to win, $4.40 to place and $2.40 to show. Johnmack Daddy returned $16.80 to place and $5.40 to show. Stormtoremember, the beaten 8-5 wagering favorite, paid $2.60 to show.


The win was the second from 13 career attempts for Lion Of Lone Oak, a son of Lion Heart from the Broad Brush mare Cedar Knolls. Both career wins have taken place this season at Remington Park with Wednesday’s effort worth $21,870. Lion Of Lone Oak has now earned $90,759.


The win aboard Lion Of Lone Oak was one of three on the night for Vazquez. He also scored with Express Delivery ($24 to win) in the seventh and in a dead-heat victory in race nine on Choose Easy ($5.20). The hat trick in successive races put the season total for Vazquez at 58 wins which leads the jockey standings. Jareth Loveberry is second with 44 wins while Cliff Berry is third with 42 wins.
