Race 1 at Remington Park is a mile race for a $29,000 purse on the dirt. Chrome Run and Race Craft appear to be hot contenders to win the opening race at Remington Park on Friday. Chrome Run finished 7th in his debut on September 11 in a $16,000 event. Improved form was noted in his next appearance on October 15. He placed 2nd behind Bizzy Legs by 1 length in another $16,000 race. Chrome Run was inserted as an underdog in that race, so the performance was largely unexpected.
Chrome Run was back out on the track on November 13 and ran well again. He showed 3rd in a $29,000 event in his toughest race to date. Chrome Run didn’t have any menace in the stretch, so that was unfortunate. Another effort like that would put Chrome Run back in contention. And improved form could put Chrome Run into the winner’s circle for the first time in his career. Expect him to face pressure from Race Craft in the stretch.
Race Craft gets the inside lane from the No. 1 post position on Friday. He has finished 4th, 11th, 2nd in his career. After finishing 11th in a $85,000 event on October 25, Race Craft dropped in class to a more beatable level on November 13. Race Craft placed 2nd behind Mrs. Beans by 1 ½ lengths for a $29,000 purse. As the favorite, Race Craft was expected to win, but still ran a respectable race. He should be given the benefit of the doubt in this performance, and rates a threat to win Race 1 on Friday.

Distance: 1 Mile
This is the feature race of the night at Remington Park on Friday. The event will cover a mile on the dirt for a $38,250 purse. Wranglered and Tonaltalitarian should have a good run and threaten to win in the stretch. Wranglered has finished 4th and 1st in his career, debuting in 4th on September 19 in a $36,975 event. Wranglered returned on October 17 for a win in the same class. He beat Love My Ride by 3 lengths in that impressive performance to draw away.
Wranglered is back slightly up in class in the feature race on Friday in OKC. Tonaltalitarian has been feeling it recently with three straight wins in the top-2. He beat That’s Something by 3 ¼ lengths on November 17 in an impressive showing for a $36,975 purse. Since the win, Tonaltalitarian has placed 2nd in back-to-back performances on September 27 and October 31. He placed 2nd behind Don’t Tell Noobody by a half length for a $38,250 purse.
In his last outing, Tonaltalitarian ran another good race, but was denied at the wire by Valentine Guy by ¾ lengths. He rallied late, but it wasn’t enough to overcome in the stretch. Tonalalitarian was gaining hard near the end of that event. If he got started going earlier, then a win would have been assured. Tonalalitrian is certainly capable of more, and has a good enough chance of striking on Friday night.

Distance:1 Mile 70 Yards
Our final pick at Remington Park comes from Race 8 for a $32,000 purse. Race 8 will take a mile and 70 yards to complete this event. Chris and Dave and Dunph should have strong races and considered to win. Dunph is 4 for 25 and was on a nice run before jumping up in class on July 5. He ran in the top-2, including back-to-back wins from February to May, and then finished 4th, 6th, 4th in his previous three outings.
Dunph was 4th in his most recent entry on November 16 at Remington Park. He was 4th in the $34,000 assignment. Dunph was regarded as giving way after running in 2nd at the ¾ pole. That was on the turf, so a chance back to the dirt might help him out nicely. In his biggest race in recent memory, Dunph was 4th in the $100,000 Prairie Meadows Cornhusker Handicap (Gr. 3) on July 5. Dunph moves slightly down in class from his most recent appearance on November 16.
Chris and Dave is 14 for 63 in his career and coming off a really nice run on November 14. Chris and Dave won by a half length over Vangilder. This was after easing down in class. He had finished 4th, 5th, 4th leading up to that event. Prior to the win a few weeks ago, Chris and Dave last won on August 3 for a $25,000 purse. If he runs in the same form as his outing on November 14, then he should be able to clear this field and edge out a win in the stretch.
