Rowdy Rascal Rallies Late To Take Oklahoma Classic Juvenile At Remington

Rowdy Rascal saved his best effort until the very end of the six-furlong $100,000 Oklahoma Classics Juvenile, presented by The Chickasaw Nation at Remington Park in Oklahoma City, Okla., getting up to victory in the final two strides to win by a head.

Owned by JT Stables of Springdale, Ark., and trained by Boyd “Jobe” Caster, Rowdy Rascal rallied under the ride of Freddy Manrrique. He made the Juvenile his second consecutive win, adding the stakes triumph to his maiden-breaking performance on Sept. 18.

Charming Oakie jumped out to the lead in the 13-horse Juvenile and deep into the stretch, appeared to be ready to collect a trophy. After fractions of :22.26 for a quarter-mile and :45:72 for the half-mile, Charming Oakie had a three-length advantage in mid-stretch. Only Rowdy Rascal had enough left to make a charge down the middle of the stretch, consuming massive real estate in the final yards to achieve success, hitting the finish in 1:12.18 over the fast track. Cuatro Madres was third another length back.

Away at 7-2 odds, Rowdy Rascal paid $9.60 to win, $5.60 to place, and $3.20 to show. Charming Oakie (28-1) returned $20.60 to place and $8 to show. Cuatro Madres, the beaten wagering favorite at 9-5 odds, paid $3.20 to show.

The remaining order of finish in the Juvenile was Legionary (4th), Inca Empire (5th), Hopgun (6th), Joe Bill (7th), Just Becauseway (8th), Evan’s Envy (9th), Rainbow Gold (10th), Dancing Devil (11th), Blueskiesandangels (12th), and Heza Freak (13th).

Rowdy Rascal won his second race from five career attempts and picked up $60,000 for the effort to move his bankroll to $95,059. A gelded son of Den’s Legacy from the Affirmatif mare Dancing Diva, Rowdy Rascal was bred in Oklahoma by Harmony Stable.

The win in the Juvenile was the first in the race for all of the connections of Rowdy Rascal.

The Oklahoma Classics is a $1,000,000 series of stakes races devoted to Oklahoma-bred Thoroughbreds.

Remington Park racing continues Saturday, Oct. 16 with the first race at 7:07 pm Central.
