RAGAN’S JET WINS HER THIRD IN ROW, TAKING OKLAHOMA CLASSICS DISTAFF SPRINT STAKES

For Immediate Release –  Oklahoma City, Ok – October 24, 2022 — Ragan’s Jet is a filly that has found her path to the winner’s circle and she will not relent, winning for the third time in a row, capping that streak Friday night in the $114,800 Oklahoma Classics Distaff Sprint Stakes at Remington Park.

Jockey Gerardo Mora has been in the saddle in all three of her latest wins, in the $45,000 Muscogee Creek Nation Stakes at Fair Meadows in Tulsa, Okla., on July 18 and then in state-bred open allowance company for fillies and mares at Remington Park on Sept. 29. She won the Muscogee by a widening 7-3/4 lengths and the allowance race by 2-1/4. It would not be so easy in the six-furlong Distaff Sprint. Dicey, who beat her twice at Will Rogers Downs in Claremore, Okla., this spring was pushing her to the limits at the wire. When they hit together, Ragan’s Jet prevailed by a neck as the even-money favorite. Dicey went off at 7-1 odds and second favorite, Sunday Flashback (6-5), finished third, three lengths back of Dicey. Sunday Flashback was the winner of this race last year.

It was Joe Offolter’s fifth Classics win overall. Offolter also won the Oklahoma Classics Distaff Sprint in 2012 with Miss Natalie.

Bryan Hawk of Shawnee, Okla., is the winning owner of Ragan’s Jet.

“Joe talked me into buying this won and I’m glad he did,” said Hawk. “She’s a nice mare.”

Ragan’s Jet is a 5-year-old mare by Mister Lucky Cat (Storm Cat), out of the Songandaprayer mare She’sgotherownjet. She was bred in Oklahoma by Millar Equine. The victory gave her $68,880 added to her lifetime bankroll and she improved her record to 14 starts, six wins, four seconds and two thirds for $226,646 in earnings.

Ragan’s Jet handled the six furlongs in 1:10.92 on the fast track and led every step of the way, setting interior fractions of :22.05 for the first quarter-mile, :44.97 for the half-mile, and :57.22 for five-eighths of a mile. She paid $4 to win, $2.60 to place and $2.10 to show.

“She done good,” said Offolter. “Gerry (Mora) fits her good. I just leave it up to him how he wants to ride her. She will get a break now. She’s earned the relaxation.”
