TROUT STAKES WINNERS FLASH WORKOUT PROWESS AT REMINGTON PARK

For Immediate Release –  July 26, 2022 — OKLAHOMA CITY – Morning training is beginning to pick up at Remington Park as the barn area continues to fill. C.R. Trout took advantage of temperatures in the low 80s, sending out three stakes winners here in 2021, preparing for the start of Thoroughbred season next month.

An Oklahoma Horse Racing Hall of Fame breeder/owner/trainer, Trout had the trio of Hits Pricey Legacy, Sunday Flashback and Absaroka each work a half-mile over the fast main track. Hits Pricey Legacy earned a bullet on the morning, going :45.25 handily, the fastest at four furlongs of 18 who worked that distance.

A 3-year-old Oklahoma-bred filly by Dan’s Legacy from the Concord Point mare High Price Hit, Hits Pricey Legacy won the Slide Show Stakes at Remington Park, for state-breds, in November 2021. She then faced open company in Remington’s top stakes event for 2-year-old fillies, finishing third in the $100,000 Trapeze Stakes on the final night of the season in December.

Sunday Flashback, a two-time stakes winner for Trout here a year ago, moved four furlongs in :46.56 handily. The 4-year-old by Flashback from the Sunday Break (Jpn) mare Sundayville Break, has won five consecutive races at Remington Park, dating back to her maiden-breaking voyage on Oct. 30, 2020. The last two wins in that streak were the Useeit Stakes (Dec.) and the $130,000 Oklahoma Classics Distaff Sprint (Oct.) last year, both for Oklahoma-bred females.

Trout is breeder, owner and trainer for both Hits Pricey Legacy and Sunday Flashback.

Absaroka, who scored the $175,000 Oklahoma Classics Cup in October last year, worked his half-mile in :49.10 handily for his owners, Cowboy Stables of Clinton, Okla. Trout trains the 6-year-old who has won five of 19 career starts with four seconds and three thirds. The Oklahoma-bred gelding is by Flat Out from the Brahms mare Wanton Song.

Jockey David Cabrera, winner of the Remington Park riding title the last four seasons, was up on all of Trout’s stakes winners this morning. Trout, spending time with his family away from Remington Park before the season begins, received first-hand information on the works.

“Cabrera called me and told me ‘I’m sorry, they just wanted to work really fast. I wasn’t trying to work them that fast.’” Trout said, unfazed. “These horses are fresh and they are ready to go.”

Trout always has some talented 2-year-olds ready for Remington Park and anticipates another good season with the young runners. “I’ve got some nice ones, I really do. They’ve had plenty of time (before racing) and it’s really going to pay off for them I think.”

Trout, as a trainer, won 16 races last season and has now won 240 races overall at Remington Park with 180 seconds and 167 thirds from 1,158 starters. He has amassed local earnings of $7,350,425. As an owner, Trout has one leading owner title at Remington Park, capturing the crown in 2002.

Remington Park begins the 67-date season on Friday, Aug. 19.
