OKLAHOMA CITY – Bayerd and Shotgun Kowboy, a pair of impressive local stakes winners this season at Remington Park, are joined by six others in the field for Friday’s $100,000 Clever Trevor Stakes. The seven-furlong race is the second leg of the Remington Park 2-year-old triple series of stakes races.


Bayerd was the winner of the $75,000 Kip Deville Stakes in late September, which started the 2-year-old triple series. Shotgun Kowboy was third in the Kip Deville, before romping to an easy score in the Oklahoma Classics Juvenile on Oct. 17.


Owned by Clark Brewster of Tulsa, Okla. and trained by Steve Asmussen, Bayerd rolled to an 11-length win in breaking his maiden status at Saratoga in upstate New York in August before his win here on the Oklahoma Derby undercard in the Kip Deville on Sept. 28. Bayerd won the Kip Deville by one length and the colt by Speightstown has put in three local works since his last triumph to prepare for his Clever Trevor attempt. Ricardo Santana, Jr. has been named to ride Friday.


Bayerd has been tabbed as the heavy 4-5 odds morning-line favorite by Remington Park odds-maker Rick Lee. Shotgun Kowboy is second in the morning line at 5-2 odds.


Shotgun Kowboy bounced back from his third-place run in the Kip Deville to annihilate his Oklahoma-bred competition in the Classics Juvenile. Owned and trained by C.R. Trout of Edmond, Okla., the Kodiak Kowboy gelding pulled away to score by an easy 6-1/2 length win. He had finished 1-3/4 lengths behind Bayerd in the Kip Deville. Jockey Luis Quinonez will have his regular mount on Shotgun Kowboy in the Clever Trevor Stakes.


There is one filly entered in the field of eight as the undefeated Strawberry Baby, victorious by 7-1/4 lengths in the Prairie Gold Lassie at Prairie Meadows in Iowa this July, makes her return after 3-1/2 months. Owned by Brad and Judy Miller of Owasso, Okla., Strawberry Baby is trained by J.R. Caldwell and will be ridden in the Clever Trevor by Dakota Wood.


In addition to Strawberry Baby, Caldwell has two others entered in the Clever Trevor Stakes in Super Stroke and Sky Full Of Stars. Both recently broke their maiden status at Remington Park.

1.    Dream It Do It: Henry Dominguez, Cliff Berry, 15-1

2.    Shotgun Kowboy: C.R. Trout, Luis Quinonez, 5-2

3.    Runaway Bling: Danele Durham, Ramon Vazquez, 30-1

The Clever Trevor Stakes is named in honor of the first winner of the Oklahoma Derby at Remington Park in 1989. Clever Trevor continues to enjoy his retirement at Robin’s Nest Farm in Piedmont, Okla., home of his trainer Donnie Von Hemel, at the age of 28.
