Remington track report


Whiskey for Me is coming home. The 3-year-old colt, who has won five races in Texas since March, will make his next start in his native Oklahoma in the $40,000 Oklahoma Classics Day Turf, said his trainer, Cody Autrey. The one-mile turf race will be held Sept. 24, and shares a program with six other Oklahoma-bred stakes as part of the Oklahoma Classics Day program at Remington.

Whiskey for Me's five wins have come in six starts in 2005, with all of his victories coming on turf. He made his stakes debut in his last start, and won the $40,000 Jim Bowie at Retama. Next weekend, he will be shooting for his fourth straight win when he starts in the Turf.

"What I like about him is that he loves to win," said Autrey. "He shows up when you bring him."

Whiskey for Me must face older horses in the Turf, but Autrey noted that he defeated older rivals in an optional claiming race at Lone Star Park in July.

* No. One Suspect, trained by Bernell Rhone, is one of the top contenders in Friday's featured eighth race, an entry-level allowance for fillies and mares on turf. Others of interest include Bali Cruise and Sugarless.

* A total of 21 horses have been claimed for receipts of $137,000 since the meet opened Aug. 5.
