OKLAHOMA CITY, OK--MAY 25, 2023--Oklahoma-breds will take over the spotlight at Remington Park on Saturday, as the track presents a 12-race program featuring four state-bred stakes.

Post time for the first race is set for 6 p.m. (CDT).

Vintage Candy, a stakes-winning daughter of Jess Good Candy racing for Raul Del Fierro Licon, is one of 10 state-bred juveniles entered in Saturday's 350-yard, $70,000 FL Lady Bug Stakes (RG3).

Raced exclusively at Remington Park this spring, Vintage Candy has earned $62,211 from four starts, and her three wins include a neck victory in the 330-yard, $68,000 Laico Bird Stakes (RG3) on April 22. The filly was a $13,000 purchase at last year's Heritage Place Yearling Sale.

Vintage Candy drew post 2 and will be ridden by James Flores for trainer Troy Carter.

Saturday's 350-yard, $70,000 Easy Jet Stakes (RG3) has drawn a full field of 10 Oklahoma-bred 2-year-olds, headed by morning-line favorite Hamlyn.

A $48,000 purchase at last year's Heritage Place Yearling Sale, Hamlyn is trained by Jason Olmstead for owner Tom Maher. The gelded son of Hes Relentless will be stretching out in distance off of his third-place finish, 3 1/4 lengths behind winner Dark NME, in the 330-yard, $804,000 Remington Park Futurity (RG1) for Oklahoma-breds on April 22.

Hamlyn drew post 7 and will be ridden by Edwin Escobedo.

Ten Oklahoma-bred sophomores, led by Thomas J. Scheckel's Kool N Foxy, are entered in Saturday's 350-yard, $50,000 Jack Brooks Stakes (RG3).

A multiple stakes winning daughter of One Famous Eagle trained by Shawna Manriquez, Kool N Foxy has won both of her races at Remington Park this spring, including the 400-yard, $159,000 Remington Park Oaks (R) for state-bred 3-year-old fillies on April 22. All told, the filly has earned $123,414 from nine starts.

Kool N Foxy drew post 2 and will be ridden by Cristian Esqueda.

Eight Oklahoma-bred aged runners, headed by morning-line favorite Just A Kool Boy, will face off in Saturday's 400-yard, $68,000 Boyd Morris Memorial Stakes (RG2).

A 4-year-old son of Favorite Cartel trained by Eddie D. Willis for owner Adina Baker, Just A Kool Boy has earned $36,527 from two outs at Remington Park this spring, and he scored a three-quarter length win in the 300-yard, $50,000 Bob Moore Memorial Stakes (G2) on April 22.

Just A Kool Boy drew post 4 and will be ridden by Justine Klaiber.
