OKLAHOMA CITY, OK—MARCH 15, 2023–Apollitical Redflash broke the Remington Park track record for 330 yards on Thursday night. The mark that had stood since 2014, fell as the 5-year-old sorrel gelding had a little help from his friend, a 24mph northerly tailwind.

No longer will you have Pure D Spit in your program. That gelding set the record in 2014 for owner/trainer Rodrigo Covarrubias on April 10 of that year in a time of :16.323 and the Equibase racing chart shows no wind in the race.

Jockey Jesus Salazar was aboard for that victory. Nine years later, Apollitical Redflash scores with a time of :16.295 with the blustery north wind at his back and Jorge Torres on his back for trainer Clint Crawford. This gelding received a 107-speed index for his efforts
