FANCY PANTS DC STAYS UNDEFEATED AFTER TWO STARTS, WINNING THE LAICO BIRD STAKES AT REMINGTON PARK

OKLAHOMA CITY - April 21, 2019 – It’s early, but Fancy Pants DC may never lose a race. On March 6, this 2-year-old gelding won a training race at Remington Park, followed by a win in maiden company on March 23. Now he is a stakes winner for the first time, taking the $73,000 Laico Bird Stakes at Remington Park on Saturday night in his initial attempt at this class level.

 

The sky appears to be the limit with this son of Im A Fancy PYC, out of the Corona Cartel mare DC Cartel. He is now officially two-for-two and after earning $40,800 in the Laico Bird Stakes, he has pocketed $54,640 for owner Shelley Goodnight of Park Hill, Okla. Trainer Bill Goodnight gave a leg up to jockey Cody Smith and the rider pressed on the gas, moving from fourth to first in 16.895 seconds over a fast track to earn a speed index of 87 in the win.

Fancy Pants DC went off at 2-1 odds, and finished just a neck ahead of Pepper Ryan, the 6-5 favorite. The runner-up was another nose in front of third-place runner Barbie Tales. Fancy Pants DC was bred in Oklahoma by the owner.

He paid $6.60 to win, $3.20 to place and $2.60 to show.
