OKLAHOMA CITY – Cold winter temperatures and a wind chill of 13-degrees was not enough to deter What Lola Wants from elongating a stellar year on Wednesday night at Remington Park. The 5-year-old mare rallied to win a $36,968 allowance event for older fillies and mares while keeping a remarkable statistic going in the process.


Owned and bred in Oklahoma by Catherine Lokey, What Lola Wants made her 14th start of 2014 on Wednesday night. By adding another win, What Lola Wants has now finished either first or second in all 14 of her attempts this year. The super-dependable mare is trained by J.R. Caldwell and was ridden to her seventh victory of the season by Jake Barton.


What Lola Wants used a tactical run, sitting just off the early pace in the one-mile race, waiting to make a bid for the front until the final quarter-mile. Moving into the stretch, Eye Love Jeanie had taken the lead but had What Lola Wants to her outside and What The World moving well to her inside. What Lola Wants gained the lead in the final 100 yards and held off What The World to win by a neck in 1:39.97 over a fast track. Eye Love Jeanie held third as the beaten 2-1 wagering favorite.


Away at 5-2 odds in the betting, What Lola Wants paid $7.40 to win, $4.20 to place and $3 to show. What The World returned $6.60 to place and $3.60 to show. Eye Love Jeanie paid $3 to show.


A daughter of Don’t Get Mad from the River Squall mare Tulane, What Lola Wants won her 10th career race from 30 attempts. The winner’s check of $22,607 moved her lifetime earnings to $200,129.


What Lola Wants was Caldwell’s third winner of the night. He also saddled Fleet Mitchy ($8.60) in the third race and Dontchangetrainers ($14.20) in the fourth. The training triple gives Caldwell 28 wins for the season, placing him third in the standings behind Karl Broberg (32 wins) and Steve Asmussen (31).


Remington Park Thoroughbred racing continues Thursday thru Saturday, Nov. 13-15, with the first race nightly at 7pm.
