JOCKEY JAVIER HERNANDEZ-GALLARDO WINS FOR FIRST TIME IN HIS CAREER

OKLAHOMA CITY - May 5, 2019 – Jockey Javier Hernandez-Gallardo had a huge smile on his face in the winner’s circle when he brought The Conducter in for the win in Remington Park’s fifth race Sunday.

Most riders do smile after a win, but this one was especially big as the call came in from the jocks’ room to track announcer Dale Day after the race. They wanted to make sure he let the fans know that it was Hernandez-Gallardo’s first ever career win. 

Trainer Durk Perry had sent this 4-year-old mare by Freighttrain B, out of the One Famous Eagle mare One Famous Eaglette, to the track 10 previous times with six different jockeys and only Benito Baca was able to win with her. Hernandez-Gallardo was The Conducter’s seventh rider and apparently it was lucky number seven. She covered 300 yards in 15.586 seconds on a fast track to earn a speed index of 84 and a trip to the winner’s circle.

She was a half-length ahead of runner-up Ladybug Wagon, who was another neck ahead of third-place Prior Consent. All three horses in the trifecta were double-digits in odds. The Conducter went off at 14-1 odds and paid $31.20 to win, $13.40 to place and $9.20 to show across the board. The two behind her were at odds of 18-1 and 11-1 respectively. That 50-cent trifecta was worth $1,434.35 to those who correctly selected the 11-2-7 combination. The 10-cent superfecta paid $2,553.03 with the 4-1 second favorite, Thunder Man, running fourth.

The Conducter earned $12,192 from the $22,200 claiming race for Oklahoma-breds, 3-years-old-and-older, running for a tag of $10,000. The race was restricted to horses that had never won two races.

The Conducter has now won $38,840 lifetime in her 11 starts for owner and breeder Beverly Houseof Seminole, Okla. Her racing record is 11starts, two wins, two seconds and four thirds. She was bred in Oklahoma by the owner.

Big Payoffs Sunday

Sunday was a day for huge payouts to fans of Remington Park racing. Five times the payouts on exotic wagers returned more than $1,000 to bettors. On top of the two box-car results in the fifth race there also were major bucks going out to backers in the eighth and 10th races. In the eighth, another trifecta that had three horses with double-digit odds keyed a payout of $1,336.80 on the 50-cent wager. The first three finishers went off at odds of 14-1, 10-1 and 22-1. In that same race, the 10-cent superfecta with the fourth horse at 9-1 odds, gave bettors $4,682.81 for correctly selecting the 4-9-12-2 combination. Maybe Painted won the race at odds of 14-1.

In the nightcap, the 10th race, the 50-cent Pick 4 was worth $2,747.25 with the winning horses of that wager in races 7-8-9-10 going off at odds of 5-2, 14-1, 5-1, and 4-5. They were Jess a Lota, Maybe Painted, Marys Cartel, and Daunting Task, respectively.

No one had a unique Sooner 6ix ticket, so the carryover going into the next live racing card Thursday night is $17,970.33. Those correctly selecting four of six on Sunday were rewarded with a payout of $119.50. The winning numbers were 11-2-6-4-5-2,4.

Racing begins Thursday at 6 p.m. for a 11-race live card at Remington Park.
