Bayakoa's Image dominates in Black Mesa


Bayakoa's Image defended her title in the $35,000 Black Mesa at Remington Park on Saturday when she turned in a dominating, nine and a half length win over Devout Sinner in the seven furlong race for fillies and mares bred in Oklahoma.

It was another two lengths back in third to Racing Sundown.

Bayakoa's Image($7.20) withstood some early pace pressure from Racing Sundown, then drew out through the stretch, covering the distance in 1:23.92. The win came on the heels of her more than eight length romp in the $35,000 Oklahoma Classics Day Distaff in September.

Kevin Cogburn rode Bayakoa's Image for co-owner and trainer O.J. Osburn.
