Oak Tree: Talamo triples


Jockey Joe Talamo won for the third time in the first six races on Saturday's card when the longshot Short Memo won the sixth race, a maiden race on turf.

Short Memo ($26.20) rallied from off the pace to win the six-furlong race by 3 3-4 lengths in 1:10.32. He was arguably not the best horse in the field.

Fourth-place finisher The Unusual One had a dreadful trip and finished fourth, beaten 4 1-4 lengths. Turning for home, The Unusual One was racing on the inside, and was in desperate need of running room. It never materialized until the final 50 yards when The Unusual One made progress on the field too late.
