HHR’s 2 Year Old Stakes Watch- Oklahoma Stallion Stakes

Oklahoma Stallion Stakes at Remington

Lexie LouThis Friday, November 29th, 2013 we have 2 Oklahoma Stallion Stakes races to consider at Remington Park. Before we handicap that race, let’s recap Sunday’s 2 year old racing action in the South Ocean Stakes at Woodbine. Just like I figured it would go down, Lexie Lou was left alone on the front-end and won this one by controlling the pace, wire to wire. Lexie Lou won by 3 lengths over Paladin Bay in second and Flipcup in third. She paid $6.90 for the win and if you had boxed these 3 in the trifecta it would have paid $37.00. Now let’s take a look at Remington Park and the 2 Oklahoma Stallion Stakes for this Friday.

Oklahoma Stallion Fillies

Okie SmokeyThe $50,000 Oklahoma Stallion Fillies Stakes is the 5th race on the card for Friday at Remington and will feature a field of 9 two year old fillies traveling 6 furlongs. The 4 to 5 morning line favorite is Heykittykittykitty. She certainly has the best speed figures in this field and will be tough to beat. For a longshot, I like Don’tcloseureyes at 8 to 1 on the morning line. Don’tcloseureyes has comparable speed figures and is close enough in speed that I think she can out run Heykittykittykitty. Her works are solid and I feel she is ready for this race. More than likely we will see a strong duel for the front-end lead between Herekittykittykitty, Don’tcloseureyes and a few of the other fillies here. This should make it easy for my value play, Okie Smokey to come charging at the end and out run the tiring front-end fillies. Okie Smokey made an impressive come from way back win in the Oklahoma Classic Lassie and I feel this race should be no different for her.

Oklahoma Stallion Stakes

Remington ParkThe $50,000 Oklahoma Stallion Stakes is the 7th race on the card Friday at Remington and will feature a field of 9 two year old colts and geldings battling it out over 6 furlongs. The 7/5 morning line favorite is Alpha and Omega. Alpha and Omega has the top speed figure out of this bunch and should do fine here. He ran 2nd in the Oklahoma Classic Juvenile Stakes and his works show that he is ready for the Oklahoma Stallion. There’s really no reason why Alpha and Omega shouldn’t win this one, but to play devil’s advocate, my value/longshot horse is going to be Here Comes Valdez. If Alpha and Omega sticks to his form in his last outing, Here Comes Valdez has an excellent chance at beating him as his speed figures are comparable to that race, if not almost identical. I look for these two to hook up and battle it out to the end. For the sake of a true longshot with nice odds, I like first time starter Charlie’s Deere. The works look good for this maiden and with the weight break he should fare well with this bunch. Good luck everybody!
