OKLAHOMA CITY – She’s All In, arguably the top Oklahoma-bred in training, returned to Remington Park on Saturday evening to prep for her Oklahoma Classics outing next month. The 5-year-old mare won as she pleased, cruising home in her $49,000 state-bred allowance by 2-1/2 lengths.
Owned by Robert Zoellner of Tulsa, Okla. and trained by Donnie Von Hemel, She’s All In tracked the pace-setting Winner To Be for the first half-mile of the one-mile race before easily going to the lead as the field of seven moved to the final turn. Under jockey Luis Quinonez, She’s All In was in complete command throughout the stretch run with plenty in reserve, crossing the line in 1:39.34 over the sloppy main track. Winner To Be held second with Okie Blonde another 4-1/4 lengths back in third.
The heavy wagering favorite at 1-5 odds, She’s All In paid $2.60 to win, $2.10 to place and $2.10 to show. Winner To Be returned $2.60 to place and $2.10 to show. Okie Blonde paid $3 to show.
She’s All In has options going forward to the Oct. 19 Oklahoma Classics. The versatile mare has won over fast and off-tracks and over turf so she could make her next start in many of the divisional races that comprise the Classics. Saturday’s win was her 13th from 28 career starts and her eighth at Remington Park. Winner of the Grade 3, $200,000 Sixty Sails Handicap at Hawthorne in Chicago this spring, She’s All In picked up $28,398 for the win Saturday to move her lifetime earnings to $689,265.
Jockey Bryan McNeil posted a triple on Saturday. He won aboard Pacar ($3.20 to win) in the fifth race, What Lola Wants ($113.60) in the sixth and G J’s Pride ($9.80) in the ninth. McNeil now has 19 wins for the season and moves into sole possession of third-place in the jockey standings behind Quinonez (27 wins) and Cliff Berry (24).
