Okie Ride, 5, is now one behind the Remington Park track record of 15 wins.

Okie Ride continued his outstanding 9-year-old season Friday night when he won his second straight stakes race of the Remington Park meet in the $50,000 Silver Goblin.

The Silver Goblin was one of three Oklahoma-bred stakes on the card, with Sweet Posse taking the $75,000 Slide Show and Hallelujah Hit the $75,000 Don McNeill.

Okie Ride ($7.40), who won the Silver Goblin for the third time, last month won the Oklahoma Classics Sprint for the fourth time at his base of Remington.

In the Silver Goblin on Friday, he sat behind Imahit through fractions of 22.43 seconds for the opening quarter and 45.17 for the half-mile. Okie Ride then engaged that one and proved a nose best at the wire, covering 6 1/2 furlongs on a fast track in 1:16.13.

Luis Quinonez was aboard for Richter Family Trust and trainer Kenneth Nolen. Okie Ride is a son of Candy Ride. He has now won 16 of 41 starts and $789,714.

Okie Ride overall has now won 14 career races at Remington, one behind the track’s record of 15 shared by Highland Ice and Elegant Exxactsy.

Sweet Posse ($7.40) rolled by 8 1/2 lengths in the Slide Show, which was for 2-year-old fillies at a mile. She tracked the pace and drew clear, covering the distance in 1:40.60. Jareth Loveberry was aboard for The Elkstone Group and trainer Donnie Von Hemel. Sweet Posse is a daughter of Caleb’s Posse.

Hallelujah Hit ($7.80) came from off the pace for a length win over favorite Rowdy the Warrior in the Don McNeill, covering the mile for 2-year-olds in 1:38.50. Alex Birzer rode the winner for C.R. Trout, who bred, trains and owns the son of Mr. Nightlinger.
