Will Rogers Downs track report


Trainer Martin Lozano's stable has one of the highest win percentages in this region, so it is no surprise to find him dominating the Will Rogers Downs meet in Claremore, Okla. He has won with 26 of 76 starters, 16 more than the second-leading trainer, Zachary Armstrong.

Lozano has a 28-horse stable at Will Rogers, and he looks to keep his barn's momentum going through the end of the meet, May 28.

"We're going to try to enter in every race we can to finish pretty strong," said Lozano.

Lozano, who has another 24 horses in training at Lone Star Park, has developed a promising 3-year-old filly this meet in Superior Court. She has won 2 of 3 starts at Will Rogers, her latest an optional claiming race over older rivals. Alex Jimenez has ridden Superior Court in each of her local starts. She races for Gary Owens.

Owens also owns Jettin Affirmed, who earlier this meet won a six-furlong allowance in a sharp 1:08.40 for Lozano. Jettin Affirmed is a son of Affirmed and out of Explosive Kate, a five-time stakes winner of $310,402.

Another popular horse for Owens and Lozano is stakes winner The Niner Account, who is on vacation and will return during the Remington Park meet, said Lozano. In his last start, The Niner Account was second to Bang in the $50,000 Budweiser Handicap at Sunland Park on Jan. 28.
