We are late in reporting, but proud to announce that two Accredited Texas-breds were named as champions for the recently concluded Remington Park Thoroughbred meet. We offer our congratulations to the connections of My Master Plan and Ivan Fallunovalot:
Champion 2-year-old – My Master Plan
My Master Plan was the selection on all ballots for Champion 2-year-old Female. She completed a perfect season at Remington Park, scoring in the $100,000 Trapeze Stakes on the closing day of the meeting.
Owned by Joyce & Dan McGough of Granbury, Texas, My Master Plan finished the season undefeated in four starts. After breaking her maiden status at six furlongs in September, My Master Plan won an allowance race and the $50,000 E.L. Gaylord Memorial Stakes in October, both at 6-1/2 furlongs.
Trained by Donnie Von Hemel, My Master Plan successfully stretched out in the Trapeze on Dec. 13, handling one mile under Luis Quinonez. She was bred in Texas by her owners and sired by Oklahoma stallion Oratory.
Champion Older Male – Ivan Fallunovalot
Sweeping the top sprint races of the season, Ivan Fallunovalot won the vote for Champion Sprinter and Champion Older Male for his perfect two-for-two record here.
Owned by Lewis Mathews, Jr. of Bismarck, Ark. and trained by Tom Howard, Ivan Fallunovalot had the services of Hall of Fame Jockey Calvin Borel in winning the $75,000 David M. Vance Sprint Stakes in August and then the $150,000 Remington Park Sprint Cup in September.
A 5-year-old gelding, Ivan Fallunovalot used the Remington Park races to ready for an appearance in the Breeders’ Cup Sprint at the end of October. The Texas-bred by Valid Expectations was in contention until early stretch in that race before fading.
