3YO ALTERNATIVE SLEW Just Misses in Useeit S.

The consistent multiple stakes winner ALTERNATIVE SLEW got collared late to place in the Useeit S., just 3/4 length off the win. The 3-year-old filly by ALTERNATION settled a couple lengths off the lead in the early going of this one mile event on the main track. She rallied three wide on the final turn to take the lead near the top of the stretch, opened up an advantage by mid-stretch and just got caught in the final strides at Remington Park. ALTERNATIVE SLEW won the Bob Barry Memorial S. on the turf in her stakes debut, then followed that up with a 4 1/4 –length victory in the Oklahoma Classics Distaff Turf S. Lifetime record: 10-4-3-2, $205,713. O/B-Walter M. Jones. T-Randy Oberlander.
