OKLAHOMA CITY – The 11-year-old veteran Little Wagon fell to the back of the pack in his $15,000-level claiming event over the turf Thursday at Remington Park, a regular tactic for success. The distance of 1-1/16 miles gave him plenty of time to make his rally and he did not disappoint, gaining the front in the final furlong before winning by two lengths.


The second consecutive win of the season for Little Wagon was his 14th overall victory at Remington Park, putting the elder statesman just one away from tying the local record for most career wins. Elegant Exxactsy, a mare who competed at Remington Park in the early 1990s, shares the record of 15 wins with multiple local stakes star Highland Ice who raced here in the late 1990s.


Owned by the Minneapolis, Minn. partnership of Deanna Kirchoff and Henry Thilmony, Little Wagon is trained by Randy Oberlander. Jockey Luis Quinonez was up for the win, allowing Little Wagon to settle last in the field of eight before rolling by his rivals. He started his move entering the final turn and picked off foes throughout the lane, eventually making the front with full momentum. Little Wagon crossed the finish in 1:45.31 over a firm turf course.


Away at 5-2 odds, Little Wagon paid $7.40 to win, $4.40 to place and $2.60 to show. Commander Sport was second and paid $11 to place and $3.60 to show. Nev’s Cat was the beaten favorite at 8-5 odds, running third to pay $2.60 to show.


Little Wagon is a Kentucky-bred gelding by Langfuhr from the Twilight Agenda mare Quilt. He won his 19th career race from 75 attempts on Thursday, picking up another $10,347 for his lifetime bankroll of $371,416.


At Remington Park, Little Wagon has started 36 times, winning 14 races with 10 seconds and four thirds. His earnings in Oklahoma City stand at $247,139.


Remington Park racing continues Friday and Saturday, Nov. 7 & 8, with the first race nightly at 7pm. The $100,000 Clever Trevor Stakes is featured Friday night for 2-year-olds at seven furlongs.


Remington Park is open daily at 10:30am for simulcast racing and casino gaming, featuring the Bricktown Brewery on the casino floor. Admission, general parking and valet parking are always free at Remington Park, the home of the $250,000 Springboard Mile on Sunday, Dec. 14.


Tracked by over 71,000 fans on Facebook and 5,800 Twitter followers, Remington Park is Oklahoma City’s only Racetrack & Casino and is located at the junction of Interstates 35 & 44, in the heart of the Oklahoma City Adventure District.
