Montana Native, winner of the $200,000 Remington Park Oaks on Sunday, is to be sold at Keeneland in November, trainer Ken McPeek said Tuesday. She has now won two stakes in her last three starts, with her other score coming in the $100,000 Broom Dance at Saratoga. For her win in the Remington Oaks, Montana Native earned a Beyer Figure of 91.

“She’s going to be sold in November,” McPeek said. “We may have an opportunity to run again before then, but right now, we’re just relishing her win.”

Montana Native, owned by Ghostzapper Racing, returned to McPeek’s training center in Lexington, Ky., following her win at Remington. She won the Remington Oaks by a nose over Gold Medal Dancer.

“I was impressed with how she fought the last quarter-mile,” McPeek said. “She showed a lot of heart, just like [Gold Medal Dancer.]”

** The next start for Gold Medal Dancer, owned by Pin Oak Stud and trained by Donnie Von Hemel, is to be determined. Her connections said the options include the $300,000 Zia Park Oaks at a mile and a sixteenth Nov. 24, and the $75,000 Pago Hop at a mile on turf at Fair Grounds on Nov. 29.
