ALTERNATIVE SLEW Wins Second Straight Stakes
Coming off a win in the Bob Barry Memorial S. in her stakes debut last out, ALTERNATIVE SLEW continued her winning way taking the $130,000 Oklahoma Classics Distaff Turf S. by 4 1/4 lengths. The 3-year-old filly from the second crop of ALTERNATION chased the frontrunner until they reached the far turn. She quickly moved up to take the lead midway around the turn, then began to pull away through the stretch to finish well in hand at the wire racing 1 1/16 miles on the turf at Remington Park. Prior to her first stakes win, ALTERNATIVE SLEW took a one mile dirt allowance here by more than five lengths. A winner in her second start at two last year, the consistent filly has now won or placed in seven of eight lifetime starts and has not finished worse than third in her six starts this year. Lifetime record: 8-4-2-1, $188,476. O/B-Walter M. Jones. T-Randy Oberlander.
