OKLAHOMA CITY – Trainer C.R. Trout continues to have a spectacular season with nearly every runner he sends to the races, coming home in the top three. Those athletes gain plenty of wins as well, like What The World in Friday’s $21,000 Starter Allowance event at Remington Park for older fillies and mares.


Owned by Cowboy Stable of Clinton, Okla., What The World pressed the leader I Am Miss Brown through the first five furlongs of the one-mile event. In the middle of the second turn, jockey Luis Quinonez asked What The World for more and the 5-year-old mare gained the lead with just over a quarter-mile to run.


Unable to get clear, What The World had as many as four rivals ganging up on her, trying to pass to either side in the final furlong. What The World was up for the challenge and held the advantage by a neck at the finish line over a late-running Hollywood Knockout. Talkin Taylor rallied for third.


What The World, 5-1 odds, handled the mile over a fast track in 1:38.94 and paid $12.40 to win, $6.80 to place and $3.60 to show. Hollywood Knockout paid $18 to place and $8.60 to show. Talkin Taylor returned $4.20 to show. What Lola Wants was the beaten 5-2 wagering favorite, finishing fifth.


The win was the fifth from 15 career starts for What The World, a Kentucky-bred mare by Toccet from the Dixieland Band mare Fast Betty. She earned $12,243 to move her lifetime earnings to $73,077.


Trout started two runners Friday with Zen’s Way winning the second race, a $15,000-level claiming event, in addition to the score by What The World. The Edmond, Okla. resident has saddled 45 horses this season with 16 wins, nine seconds and nine more thirds for a 76% in the money (top three finishes) ratio. He is winning 36% of his starts.


Just four race dates remain in the 2014 Thoroughbred Season at Remington Park. A nine-race program greets fans on Saturday night at 7pm.


The final weekend of live action on Dec. 12-14 will feature racing at 7pm on Friday and Saturday nights. The season will close on Sunday, Dec. 14 with the first of 11 races at 1:30pm. The $250,000 Springboard Mile will headline the final afternoon of the season.


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.
