TRAINER CLINT CRAWFORD, OWNER CAVENAUGH QUARTER HORSES LLC COMBINE FOR THREE TRAINING RACE WINS AT REMINGTON PARK

OKLAHOMA CITY - March 6, 2019 -- Trainer Clint Crawford teamed up with owner Cavenaugh Quarter Horses of Walnut Ridge, Ark. to win three of eight training races at Remington Park on Wednesday, including the fastest one of the day. Crawford also won a fourth race with owner Brenda Reiswig.

Crawford saddled Uncle D to victory in the fourth race into a headwind of 14 mph and the 2-year-old son of champion Corona Cartel, out of the First Down Dash mare Little Surfer, stopped the timer in 13.524 seconds for a speed index of 78, the top time of all eight races, easily. Jockey Esgar Ramirez, a two-time winner of the Quarter Horse crowning race each year – the All American Futurity - was in the saddle for Crawford on Uncle D and the other two Cavenaugh horses, Dark Moon in the first and Midnight Moonlyte in the second. Crawford’s fourth winner was Candys Hero in the eighth race and he gave a leg up to Bonifacio Quiroz for that victory.

Crawford was the leading trainer of the 2018 Remington Park meet with 46 wins from 253 starts and has been at the top of the standings three times at Remington Park. He finished 20 wins ahead of runner-up Eddie Willis. Crawford’s horses in 2018 won at an 18 percent clip at Remington Park while in the money 42 percent of the time.

Ramirez was the winner of the 2016 All-American Futurity aboard Imperial Eagle at Ruidoso Downs in New Mexico, and the 2010 All-American in the saddle of Mr Piloto. Both of those years, Ramirez was the leading jockey in the country in money earned. In his career, Ramirez has had 10,131 starts, according to Equibase statistics, with 1,549 wins and lifetime earnings of $37,772,032.
