Horse Racing Results: Flat Out Wins Smarty Jones Stakes at Oaklawn Park

GOOD LUCK!! and have A GREAT DAY!!!

Oxbow Racing’s Flat Out circled rivals on the turn, then rolled down the middle of the lane to capture the $50,000 Smarty Jones Stakes on Monday, January 19, at Oaklawn Park.

The Scooter Dickey trainee Flat Out is a $5.30-1 shot in just his third career start and the son of Flatter pulled away to a 3 1/2 lengths victory over JBS Farm’s Silver Bayer.

Courtland Farm’s Gresham finished third, while the even-money favorite, Zayat Stables’ Professor Z, faded to last after making the pace in the 1-mile Smarty Jones Stakes–a prep race for the 2009 Kentucky Derby on May 2 at Churchill Downs.

Flat Out, piloted by jockey Julio Garcia, toured the mile in 1:39 over a fast track. The win was his second from 3 starts, with the $30,000 Smarty Jones Stakes winner’s share more than doubling his career earnings, now at $55,200.

“He has shown a lot of ability and talent thus far,” commented Dickey after the race.”We will nominate him to the Southwest Stakes (February 16) and take a look at all our options.

Flat Out paid $12.60, $5.60 and $3.80; Silver Bayer returned $10.40 and $5 while the show price on Gresham was $3.20.
