Remington: Von Hemel sweeps Gaylord


Horses trained by Donnie Von Hemel swept the first three places of the $35,000 E.L. Gaylord Memorial at Remington Park on Saturday night when Notable Okie cruised to a seven-length win over entrymate Spot Dot.

It was another 1 1/2 lengths back in third to Runaway Runaway, who raced as a separate betting interest.

Notable Okie ($3.60) stalked the pace early in the one-mile turf race for 3-year-old statebreds and drew out through the stretch, covering the distance in 1:37.86. Don Pettinger rode the winner for owners John and Kristine Richter.
