NORMAN, OK—MARCH 23, 2019—Champion and first-crop sire Hes Relentless got his first career stakes winner and graded winner Saturday when fastest qualifier Ec Revenge won the Grade 2 $396,650 Oklahoma Futurity at Remington Park.

Smith, from the Corona Cartel mare SS Pamilla, Ec Revenge has compiled a 2-for-2 record and banked $164,490.
