OKLAHOMA CITY, OK—FEBRUARY 5, 2019—The initial day of training races in preparation for the upcoming American Quarter Horse, Paint and Appaloosa season at Remington Park, is in the books. The top time of the session went to JC Storm, a daughter of leading sire IVORY JAMES, in the first event of the day.
Cool temperatures in the mid-30s and foggy skies set an interesting atmosphere as horses used the training races to prove their readiness for actual competition.
Owned by Jose Cervantes of Mustang, Okla., and trained by Luis Villafranco, JC Storm won the opening 250-yard race in 13.851 seconds over a fast track, with the help of a slight northeasterly tailwind of 6 mph.
Ridden by Alfredo Triana, Jr., JC Storm came away sharply at the start and after a couple of taps from the jockey, was flying along the rail from her inside post position. She glided home while in-hand over the final yards to cross the wire 2-¼ lengths ahead of her nearest rival. JC Storm is a 2-year-old Oklahoma-bred filly from the Stoli mare Oh Cherokee Rose.
