OKLAHOMA CITY, OK—FEBRUARY 5, 2019—The morning after horses were allowed to enter and be stabled in Remington Park barns, pre-season training started. Nearly 200 horses went to the track in cool and foggy conditions with Wave Topper posting the first official workout of the session.

Jockey Ruben Castro was up as Wave Topper handled 200 yards in 11.72 seconds over a fast track, according to Remington Park clocker Vicky Grothaus. The Oklahoma-bred 3-year-old filly by Wave Carver, from the Mr Jess Perry mare Jess A Topper, worked at 10am for trainer Pedro Martinez. Wave Topper is expected to attempt her second career win during the upcoming season.

The events are utilized by many trainers in order to make their new horses eligible for pari-mutuel action racing.
