SHADOWLESS PULLS UPSET OF REMINGTON PARK ALLOWANCE FEATURE AT 10-1 ODDS

For Immediate Release –  September 2, 2022 — OKLAHOMA CITY – – It came down to a matter of endurance and heart for Shadowless to pull off the upset in the featured one-mile allowance race on the Remington Park main track on Friday night.

The 3-year-old gelded son of Exaggerator, out of the Tapit mare Maxie Ford, sent off at 10-1 odds, was trying to make every pole a winning one under veteran rider Luis Quinonez. “Luis Q” is the second-leading rider all-time at Remington Park and he showed why in this feature race. His lead down the backstretch was up to five lengths on the field, but somehow Quinonez saved enough horse to the wire.

Big Chopper, one of the two heavy favorites in the race, attempted to chase Shadowless down in the late going, but could never get his nose in front. The two competitors fought to the finish, noses apart, but Shadowless was all heart, reaching out for victory in the head-bob. The final winning margin was by a head. Big Chopper went off as the second favorite at 8-5 odds while the post-time 6-5 favorite, Feel the Fear, checked in third, 2-3/4 lengths behind the front runners.

Despite this allowance being a wide-open affair for sophomores, Shadowless was still eligible for non-winners of two races lifetime, but that didn’t matter. He won for the second time in nine starts for trainer Jesse Oberlander and owner Henry Thilmony of Minneapolis, Minn. He earned $23,949 from the $40,000 purse and improved lifetime to two wins from nine starts, with three seconds and a pair of thirds for total earnings of $69,759.

Running time for the mile was 1:38.31 over the fast track and Shadowless paid $22 to win, $8 to place and $3.60 to show. He set all the fractions of :23.48 for the first quarter-mile, :47.31 for the half-mile, 1:12.57 for three-quarters of a mile and 1:25.32 for seven-eighths of a mile.

Shadowless was bred in Kentucky by China Horse Club International Ltd. It was the first time Quinonez had ever gotten a leg up on the horse. He had run second in his last three races in a row at Canterbury Park in Minnesota, losing by a head, four lengths and one length in those races. His only other win coming into Friday night also was at Remington Park when he broke his maiden in the first start of his career under jockey Jose Alvarez on Nov. 12, 2021.
