ALTERNATIVE SLEW Repeats in Oklahoma Classics Distaff Turf
Coming off a runner-up finish in the Bob Barry Memorial S. last out, ALTERNATIVE SLEW turned the tables on that winner and won the $130,000 Oklahoma Classics Distaff Turf S. by 1 3/4 lengths. The 4-year-old filly by ALTERNATION settled in second behind the pacesetter early. She then rallied two wide on the far turn, swept passed the frontrunner before the top of the stretch and finished much the best racing 1 1/16 miles on a firm turf at Remington Park. Last year ALTERNATIVE SLEW was a back-to-back stakes winner taking the seven-furlong Bob Barry Memorial followed by the Oklahoma Classics Distaff Turf (pictured). Lifetime record: 14-5-4-2, $300,743.
