Ultimate Predator Records Initial Workout As Training Begins At Remington Park

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK--FEBRUARY 7, 2018--Morning training hours began today at Remington Park as the pre-season for the 2018 American Quarter Horse Season is underway. While many of the early-arriving horses on the grounds made their way to the track, only Ultimate Predator posted an official workout.

A 3-year-old trained by Cruz Villafranco, Ultimate Predator moved 220 yards in :12.28, handily over a fast track while under jockey Omar Reyes. Owned by Margarito Montalvo of Commerce City, Colo., Ultimate Predator is a California-bred maiden by Stel Corona from the A Regal Choice mare Flying Regal. The colt started twice at age two, including a fifth-place finish in a Heritage Place Futurity trial at Remington Park on May 12, 2017.

The start of morning training hours was delayed one day due to sub-freezing temperatures and a threat of winter weather.

The 2018 American Quarter Horse, Paint and Appaloosa Season at Remington Park begins with a weekend of activity Friday, March 9 thru Sunday, March 11. The first race on Opening Night, March 9 is at 6pm. The first race on Saturday, March 10 starts at 4pm. Sunday action on March 11 is underway at 1:30pm.

The Remington Park season will continue thru June 2 with a total of 50 race dates scheduled.
