Retama: Two course records broken


SELMA, Texas - Fly Slama Jama set a course record at Retama Park when he upset the $100,000 Texas Hall of Fame Stakes at 40-1. The 1 1/16-mile turf race was one of seven restricted stakes on the card worth a cumulative $490,000.

The program, which was the richest of the meet, celebrated the Texas Hall inductions of Willard Proctor, Cash Asmussen, Allen Bogan, Ott Adams, Two Altazano, and Three Oh's.

Fly Slama Jama ($82.20) wired the field in the Texas Hall, and covered the distance in 1:40.79. Weldon Cloninger rode the winner for trainer John Locke.

Earlier on the card, another course record was set when Eagle Lake ($2.80) wired the field in the $35,000 Fiesta Mile, covering the one-mile turf race for fillies and mares in 1:34.54.

Trainer Steve Asmussen swept both $125,000 divisions of the Texas Stallion Stakes. Sago ($3.60) remained undefeated in three starts with her three-length win in the fillies division, while the colts and geldings division was won by Seneca Summer ($2.60).

Other winners on the card were Front Nine ($4) in the $35,000 Longhorn Sprint; Herve ($5.80) in the $35,000 Tejas; and Jewels for a Lady ($16.20) in the $35,000 Selma.
