HOOKED ON A WIN MAKES TRIP TO THE WINNER’S CIRCLE IN BOYD MORRIS MEMORIAL STAKES AT REMINGTON PARK

OKLAHOMA CITY - May 27, 2019 – The winner of the $72,500 Boyd Morris Memorial Stakes at Remington Park on Monday, Hooked On A Win, should seriously think of changing his name to Hooked On Many Wins.

This 4-year-old gelding won for the sixth time in his career with the stakes victory, and the second time among stakes runners. He also won the $15,000 Golden Driller Stakes at Fair Meadows in Tulsa, Okla., on June 17 last summer.

Jockey Daniel Torres rode Hooked On A Win to victory Sunday, the fourth time he has won at Remington Park in 11 tries. He almost won the $100,000 Sooner State Stakes at Remington on April 20, just being fended off by a neck in third by the winner, Political Attraction.

“He sure did run an awesome race today,” said Torres. “He’s been out of shape, but he’s good now. We had a perfect trip and got out of the gates good. He always gives his all. We knew he could keep up with them.”

Trainer Kenny Laymon conditions the horse for Regina Laymon of Neosho Falls, Kan. The horse is the gelded son of PYC Paint Your Wagon, out of the Pretty Boy Perry mare Pretty Girl Kate. He was bred in Oklahoma by JK Running Horses LLC.

The winning time for Hooked On A Win at 400 yards over a fast track was 19.821 seconds, just a tad off the stakes record of 19.492, set by Special Jess in 2016.

Hooked On A Win’s record now is 17 starts, six wins, one second and four thirds for earnings of $122,253, scoring for $41,100 for first in this win.

“He’s a special horse,” said Laymon.

Completing the order of finish for the top four were Ferrari James, Temptingsecretfly and First Of 15, who had jumped out of the gates on top but faded.

It was the first win in the Boyd Morris Memorial Stakes for all the connections. The race is for Oklahoma-breds, 3-years-old and older.

The Boyd Morris Memorial is named after the famed Quarter Horse jockey who won the 1964 All American Futurity on Decketta. The Blanchard, Okla. jockey went on to be a prominent trainer of both Quarter Horses and Thoroughbreds once his successful riding career ended. He was a mainstay from the beginning at Remington Park prior to his passing.
