There are a host of reasons why the Grade 3, $400,000 Oklahoma Derby on Sunday has brought together such a diverse group of 11 horses, but there&rsquo;s one that applies to most in the field, including leading contender Fish Trappe Road. &ldquo;It&rsquo;s one of the last 3&#45;year&#45;old races of the year,&rdquo; said trainer Bret Calhoun. The Oklahoma Derby is the richest race of the Remington Park meet and anchors a card of 10 stakes worth $1.3 million. First post is 3 p.m. Central. Remington will have an all&#45;stakes pick four on races 9&#45;12, and the minimum guaranteed pool will be $50,000. Fish Trappe Road and Ready Dancer have invaded from New York for the 1 1/8&#45;mile Oklahoma Derby. Others shipping in include Sticksstatelydude, who was fourth as the favorite in the Grade 3 Smarty Jones at Parx, and Ready Intaglio, the winner of the Grade 3 Canadian Derby at Northlands. Texas Chrome returns to his home track off a win in the Grade 3, $400,000 Super Derby on Sept. 10 at Louisiana Downs. It&rsquo;s a two&#45;week turnaround, but he has come out of the race in excellent condition, said trainer J.R. Caldwell, who has a key reason to target the Oklahoma Derby. &ldquo;We don&rsquo;t have to ship this time,&rdquo; he said. &ldquo;It&rsquo;s nice to lead him out of his own stall and go up there for the money.&rdquo; Ready Dancer won a Belmont allowance race in June and finished fourth in the Curlin Stakes at Saratoga in his last race. Trainer Todd Pletcher decided to run Ready Dancer here rather than in the Travers or the Smarty Jones at Parx.&ldquo;We didn&rsquo;t feel like he was quite up to the Travers,&rdquo; said Pletcher. &ldquo;The Smarty Jones came up a huge field. The timing of this was good, and we were able to make some travel arrangements. We decided to give it a try.&rdquo; Oklahoma Derby (Race 11) KEY CONTENDERS Fish Trappe Road, by Trappe Shot Last 3 Beyers: 91&#45;97&#45;92 ◗ Fish Trappe Road enters off a sixth&#45;place finish in the Grade 1 King&rsquo;s Bishop at seven furlongs Aug. 27 at Saratoga. &ldquo;The horse came into the race good,&rdquo; Calhoun said. &ldquo;We drew post 2 of 12, and we broke last, and he&rsquo;d never been in that spot before, and it didn&rsquo;t work out for us. When we broke dead last, it was pretty much over.&rdquo; ◗ The winner of the Grade 3 Dwyer in July at Belmont Park, he will be racing around two turns for the second time in his career. The first time, he was an uncharacteristic seventh in the Grade 3 Lecomte in his 3&#45;year&#45;old debut in January at Fair Grounds. &ldquo;We&rsquo;ve always thought this was a natural two&#45;turn horse,&rdquo; Calhoun said. &ldquo;Early in the year, we just kind of got off track from that. First race back, things went bad, and we had to back up and start over, and he ran some good sprint races. He ran very well, and there wasn&rsquo;t a whole lot of reason to change at that point in time. I do like the two turns. I would have liked a little different transition from jumping from the one&#45;turn&#45;mile, seven&#45;eighths races to a mile and an eighth.&rdquo; ◗ Rafael Bejarano has the mount on Fish Trappe Road. &ldquo;We know he&rsquo;s got a high cruising speed,&rdquo; Calhoun said, &ldquo;so I would say he&rsquo;ll definitely be in the race.&rdquo; Texas Chrome, by Grasshopper Last 3 Beyers: 96&#45;95&#45;89◗ He is a six&#45;time stakes winner who will break from the rail under C.J. McMahon. &ldquo;He used to be a big closer when he was a sprinter, and now that we&rsquo;ve gone two turns, I think he likes to stalk and make his bid,&rdquo; said Caldwell.
