BORN TO B BAD WAS BORN TO BE GOOD AT 110 YARDS, WINNING FEATURE RACE, SECOND WIN IN TWO TRIES AT DISTANCE

OKLAHOMA CITY – Born To B Bad was obviously born to be good at 110 yards, winning Sunday for the second time in as many tries at the distance, in the feature allowance race at Remington Park.

This 5-year-old gelding, trained by Tammy Johnson, was ridden to victory in the $30,400 Blink of an Eye allowance by leading Remington Park rider James Flores in a race that took 6.808 seconds to finish over the fast track. This son of Freighttrain B, out of the Separatist mare Dosvedanya, is owned by Melissa Slayton and Cody Bowling of Tolar, Texas. Born To B Bad was bred in Texas by N.R. Stevenson and Slayton.

It had been a little more than two years since Born T B Bad ran 110 yards in a race, but he won that one, also, at Remington Park on April 23, 2017, in 6.918 seconds. On Sunday, the gelding took down the allowance race by a neck over runner-up PV Queen Bee Candy, who was three-quarters of a length ahead of third-place finisher Mi Amor Secreto.

Born To B Bad earned $15,876 for the victory and now has won $233,335 lifetime with a record of 39 starts, 10 wins, three seconds and three thirds. At 3-1 odds, Born To B Bad paid $8.40 to win, $4.20 to place and $3 to show.

Sunday was the annual Extreme Racing Day at Remington Park, featuring seldom-used racing distances and exotic animals competing between the horse races. Clydesdales, zebras, ostriches and camels all rambled 110 yards in special events during the course of the afternoon before a sun-drenched and enthusiastic crowd. 

Racing continues Monday at Remington Park with a nine-race card, a makeup day from the lost Saturday night earlier in the meet on April 13. The first race Monday starts at 11:30 a.m. The carryover in the Sooner 6ix (unique-ticket Pick 6) wager is $11,093.
