Remington: Imahit, Lady Jensen win Oklahoma-bred stakes


Imahit and Lady Jensen both became stakes winners Friday night at Remington Park, when they won separate stakes for 3-year-olds bred in Oklahoma. Imahit wired the field in the $50,000 Tishomingo, while Lady Jensen rallied to take the $50,000 Te Ata.

Imahit ($5.20) led through fractions of 22.37 seconds for the opening quarter of the seven-furlong Tishomingo, 45.07 for the half-mile, and 1:09.43 for six furlongs. He went on to a two-length win over Z Rockstar while covering seven furlongs on a track rated fast in 1:22.22.

“When I asked him, he just stretched those long legs out and extended,” said Lindey Wade, who rode Imahit for Clint Gilchrist and trainer C.R. Trout.

Imahit is a son of Whywhywhy. His dam, Halo Hit, is a half-sister to Hollywood Hit, the champion sprinter in Canada in 2010 and a Grade 3 winner of $660,447.

Lady Jensen ($5.20) rallied for a 4 1/2-length win in the Te Ata, covering seven furlongs in 1:23.48. Flatterific, who was part of the pace, held second by 1 1/2 lengths over Ocean Ahumen.

Luis Quinonez rode Lady Jensen for owner-breeder Kelly Thiesing and trainer Donnie Von Hemel. Lady Jensen is a daughter of Bob and John and a half-sister to Soldier’s Dancer, a multiple Grade 3 winner of $1,524,780.
