Zooming, Perfect Fit give Calhoun exacta in Trapeze Stakes


Zooming overtook stablemate Perfect Fit to win the $100,000 Trapeze by a length at Remington Park on Sunday, giving trainer Bret Calhoun a one-two finish in the one-mile race for 2-year-old fillies. It was another 2 1/4 lengths back to Sweet Opportunity in third.

The Trapeze was one of five stakes that helped close out the meet at Remington. The program was led by the $250,000 Springboard Mile, which Bayerd won by a head over Shotgun Kowboy.

Zooming ($25.20) stalked in third as Perfect Fit took the field through an opening quarter in 23.75 seconds, a half-mile in 47.28, and six furlongs in 1:11.82. Zooming moved up, overtook the leader in the stretch, and covered the mile on a track rated “muddy” in 1:38.22.

“We’ve been pretty high on both of those fillies for a while,” Calhoun said. “Zooming had a great trip tonight. She had a great post, and she’s had two two-turn races under her belt, and we expected a big race out of her tonight, and we got it. That’s not taking anything away from Perfect Fit. She drew [inside], took a little heat first time around two turns.”

Both fillies had been based this meet at Remington, but they will now be separated, with Zooming to be pointed to the 3-year-old filly series at Fair Grounds and Perfect Fit likely to be based at Oaklawn Park, said Calhoun.

Lindey Wade rode Zooming for Carl R. Moore Management. The filly was winning her third straight race following a maiden special weight win Oct. 11 and a first-level allowance Nov. 21. She has never been beaten at two turns, with all of her victories coming in one-mile races at Remington.

Perfect Fit had won a maiden special weight and a first-level allowance, both sprints at Remington, coming up to the Trapeze. She is owned by Majestic Racing Partners.

Broberg exacta in She’s All In

Trainer Karl Broberg locked up the exacta in the $100,000 She’s All In, where Honey’s Ryan wired the field for a 1 3/4-length win over stablemate Diva’s Diamond. It was another five lengths back to Blue Violet in third.

Flashy American, the favorite and highweight, finished an uncharacteristic ninth in the race run on a muddy track and after a weather delay due to tornado warning sirens in the area Sunday.

Honey’s Ryan ($12.40) defeated older rivals in the She’s All In for fillies and mares, taking the field through fractions of 23.61 seconds for the opening quarter, 47.23 for the half-mile, and 1:11.38 for six furlongs. She had more in the stretch to win the race at a mile and 70 yards in 1:41.09.

Cliff Berry rode Honey’s Ryan for the partnership of Rusty Taylor, Elaine Holliday, Jerry and Margaret Davis, and Mike Walker.

• Fesstune ($15.20) rallied from last to win the $50,000 Jim Thorpe by three-quarters of a length, the first of two stakes wins on the card for Clark Brewster, who also owns Bayerd.

Ibaka, the 2-5 favorite, pressed throughout and ran fourth in the Oklahoma-bred stakes for 3-year-olds, triggering large show payoffs. Fesstune returned $26.40 to show; runner-up Big Money Speaks, $49.60 to show; and third-place finisher Lingerlonger, $45.60. Belen Quinonez rode Fesstune for trainer Scott Young.

• Okie Smokey ($5) won her second straight stakes race, closing for a 2 1/4-length win over Heykittykittykitty in the $50,000 Useeit for 3-year-old fillies bred in Oklahoma. One start prior, she accounted for the Oklahoma Classics Distaff. Bryan McNeil rode Okie Smokey for the Richter Family Trust and trainer Carlos Padilla.
