ALTERNATIVE SLEW Rallies to Runner-up Spot in Bob Barry Memorial

Making her second start off a six-month layoff, ALTERNATIVE SLEW nearly ran down the frontrunner to finish just a length back in the 7 1/2-furlong Bob Barry Memorial S. on the turf at Remington Park. The 4-year-old daughter of ALTERNATION broke from the outside post to settle off the pace early. She began her rally on the turn, swung four wide turning for home and continued to close the gap on the frontrunner to the wire. ALTERNATIVE SLEW won this race last year in her stakes debut and then followed that up with a 4 1/4-length victory in the $130,000 Oklahoma Classics Distaff Turf S. going 1 1/16 miles on the turf in her very next start. She was also stakes-placed on the dirt in 2019. Lifetime record: 13-4-4-2, $222,743. O/B-Walter M. Jones. T-Randy Oberlander.
