Yvete Sangalo pulls away in the stretch of Friday night's Gaylord Stakes at Remington Park.

Yvete Sangalo, a Mexican-bred daughter of Hard Spun, became a stakes winner Friday night when she dominated by 4 1/4 lengths in the $50,000 E.L. Gaylord at Remington Park. Exchanted finished second, a length and a half in front of third-place finisher Miss Lederhosen.

The Gaylord, a 6 1/2-furlong race for 2-year-old fillies, was the first in a series of weekend stakes at Remington that build up to the $400,000 Oklahoma Derby on Sunday.

Yvete Sangalo ($24.60) raced in sixth in the early stages of the Gaylord, as Cowgirl N up and Solid Scam dueled through an opening quarter in 21.80 seconds and a half-mile in 44.94. Yvete Sangalo rallied through the stretch under Chris Landeros, to win in 1:16.91.

Yvete Sangalo races for Pozo de Luna of La Paz, Mexico, and is trained by Kari Craddock. 

“The owner came to me and gave me 10 horses this spring,” said Craddock. “Yvete Sangalo is the star of the stable so far. They are all bred to run longer so we’re looking forward to that.”

Yvete Sangalo won her maiden at Lone Star Park in May. She earned $30,000 for the victory in the Gaylord, which was her second career win from five starts. She has now earned $47,219.
