For Immediate Release
Wednesday, August 21, 2013
OKLAHOMA CITY – She’s All In, the current Oklahoma-bred superstar in Thoroughbred racing, will make her first Remington Park attempt of the season in Saturday night’s $75,000 Edward J. DeBartolo Memorial Handicap. The talented 6-year-old mare will also go over the $1,000,000-mark in career earnings by finishing third or better in the 1-1/8 miles turf event.
Owned by Robert Zoellner of Tulsa, Okla. and trained by Donnie Von Hemel, She’s All In will be ridden by Luis Quinonez. The mare by Include from the Hickory Ridge mare Georgia OK, has amassed $991,502 thru 35 career starts with 14 wins, nine of them at Remington Park. She has only finished worse than third one time in her 11 lifetime attempts in Oklahoma City.
She’s All In will face six rivals in the DeBartolo including a half-brother to one of the all-time greats in Breeders’ Cup history. Ocean Seven is a half-brother to Goldikova, the Irish-bred mare who won three consecutive Breeders’ Cup Mile events over the turf from 2008-2010. Overall, Goldikova earned over $7.1 million before being retired after the 2011 season.
Ocean Seven, an Irish-bred from the broodmare Born Gold, who also produced Goldikova, has not come close to matching his famous sister’s resume. However, he has made over $113,000 and won five career races, four of them over the turf. Owned by Southfield Management of Trophy Club, Texas and trained by Steve Borunda, Ocean Seven comes into the DeBartolo with a two-race win streak, winning his most recent races over the turf at Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie, Texas.
All seven entered in the DeBartolo field for Saturday have earned more than $100,000. The second-highest money-maker in the field is Daddy Nose Best with a bankroll of $714,091. The sixth-place finisher in the last year’s Oklahoma Derby, Daddy Nose Best is owned by Cathy and Bob Zollars of Dallas and is trained by Steve Asmussen. He finished 10th in the 2012 Kentucky Derby.
