Tuesday presents another brisk day for horse racing with just three racecourses available for wagering at BetOnline. On a day with no sports in North America tonight, well, besides Major League Soccer, it would have been nice to see more tracks operating, but this is typical for early in the week. Last night was a good effort at Mountaineer Park, as we were able to find enough winning horses for a profit in the nightcap in West Virginia.
Mountaineer Park is back on Tuesday night. We’re going to get started in Oklahoma at Remington Park in the afternoon, though. There isn’t any stakes racing to be had today, unless you count the $60,000 Lookout Stakes at Delta Downs. For it to be a true stake stakes race to me it has to be for at least $100,000.
Black Friday will have stakes racing from Churchill Downs, Del Mar, and Aqueduct. Churchill Downs has the biggest event with the running of the $500,000 Clark Handicap (Gr. 1). That’s the first Grade 1 race since the Breeders’ Cup. As far as today is concerned at Remington Park, there are ten races on the card worth a total of $168,346 in Oklahoma. Head below for our free Remington Park picks for November 24, 2020.

Race 4 is the feature race at Remington Park on Tuesday in Oklahoma. This event will cover 7 furlongs on the dirt for a $38,888 purse. Okie Standard and Mesa Moon are on my shortlist to win this event. Okie Standard is in solid form right now with two straight wins as he seeks a hat-trick on Tuesday. He has finished 3rd, 9th, 3rd, 1st, 1st, in his career.
In his first win, Okie Standard beat Pop’s Biscuit by a half length for a $36,975 purse. Okie Standard followed up for another win on November 7. He beat Criminal by 4 lengths in a $38,250 event after inching up in class. Okie Standard remains in a similar class for today and rates a threat to all in this field. He is coming off a 50.62 second workout at 4 furlongs on November 19.
Mesa Moon has been hot to open his career as well. He has finished 3rd, 1st, 1st, 2nd in his career. In his two wins, Mesa Moon beat That’s Something by 9 lengths in a blowout for a $36.975 purse on August 22. Okie Standard was in that race as well, showing 3rd well behind Mesa Moon. Mesa Moon made it back-to-back wins on September 24 for an 11 length win over Deja Crew for a $38,250 prize.
The stakes circuit was next for Mesa Moon and he ran well to place 2nd behind Welder by 4 lengths in the $130,000 Oklahoma Classics Sprint Stakes (Black Type) on October 16. In comparison to that assignment, he should find this much easier on Tuesday. I’m backing Mesa Moon to get the win in Race 4.

Race 9 runs for a $14,080 purse on the dirt. Six horses are expected to participate, with Catdaddy and Don’t Tell Nobody solid options to win the top prize here. Catdaddy is 3 for 35 in his career and is coming off a bold performance on November 11. If he can carry that form over to today, then Catdaddy might have a chance to get a win here. It would be his first win since November 17, 2019.
Catdaddy has been winless in six straight outings. After finishing 5th in three straight performances, Catdaddy placed 2nd behind Summer Revolution by 2 ¾ lengths. Don’t Tell Noobody is 4 for 12 in his career and looking for a hat-trick today. He is a winner in back-to-back performances on September 27 and October 16.
In the first win of those two, Don’t Tell Noobody beat Tonalatarian by a half length in a $38,250 event. Don’t Tell Noobody followed up for a winning run on October 16 in the $175,000 Oklahoma Classics Cup Stakes (Black Type). He won by 1 length over Fast Breakin Cash to earn the big prize. Way down in class on Tuesday, if Don’t Tell Noobody is interested in running then a win should follow.

Race 10 is set up for a mile of racing at Remington Park. This event is the finale at Remington Park for Tuesday. It comes with a purse of $10,120. M and M Girl and Keena should run strong races in this one. M and M Girl is 3 for 21 in her career. It’s been a while since she has gone to the winner’s circle. She has finished 3rd, 5th, 3rd in her previous three outings.
M and M Girl showed 3rd in her most recent outing on November 1 in a $10,120 assignment. This is the same class and she should be able to run another close race. I think this outing is slightly easier than her last event, so expect her to be a competitor in this event. Her biggest threat is likely going to be Keena from the No. 3 post position. Keena is 3 for 16 in her career, with her most recent victory on May 6 at Will Rogers Downs.
Since that win, Keena finished 5th, 2nd, 4th. Her best run in that group took place on July 30 at Canterbury Park for a $25,000 purse. She placed 2nd behind Viva Forever by a head. In her next performance, Keena was 4th on September 17 in a $30,000 assignment. Keena moves way down in class to a $10,120 race. The competition will be a lot easier for her on Tuesday. That should boast her chances of winning significantly.
