Reggies Bailbond Tops Thursday Training Races At Remington Park

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK--FEBRUARY 8, 2018--Sunny skies and southerly winds greeted competitors on Thursday for the second day of training races at Remington Park. Reggies Bailbond handled the second event, winning by a half-length, posting the top time of the session.

Owned by Bret Pevehouse and trained by Clint Crawford, Reggies Bailbond was ridden by Omar Reyes. Starting from the outside post in a seven-horse training event, Reggies Bailbond was under light encouragement, methodically running down his competition. He crossed the finish of his 250 yards in :14.014 over a fast track.

The Thursday training races were contested into a southerly wind, ranging from 14-16mph throughout the day.

Reggies Bailbond is an Oklahoma-bred 2-year-old gelding by High Rate Of Return from the Southern Cartel mare Landaluce.

The Paint stallion CRM Livewire was the only sire with two winners today, getting Live Moonshine in the 3rd race and Sire For Sound in Race 8. Other sires with winners on Thursday's card were Carters Cartel, Separatist and Tempting Dash.

Dan and Kay Jones were the only owner with two winners, the aforementioned Live Moonshine and Wire For Sound, both saddled by trainer Matt Whitekiller. Additional trainers with winners were Luis Villafranco, Luz Chavira and Dustin Cox.
