On December 14 Oklahoma-bred males went to the gate in the $50,000 Silver Goblin Stakes at 6-1/2 furlongs. Okie Time went from last to first in the sprint, making his move from the back in the middle of the turn and achieving the front of the seven-horse field by the top of the stretch.
Owned by Richter Family Trust of Perkins, Okla. and trained by Donnie Von Hemel, Okie Time was ridden by Don Pettinger at odds of 16-1. The 5-year-old finished 2-1/2 lengths in front of the pace-setting Fifth Date. Last year’s Silver Goblin winner, Marq French, was third.
Okie Time handled 6-1/2 furlongs in 1:18.62.
The Silver Goblin win was the fourth from 18 career starts for Okie Time and his first score at Remington Park. A 5-year-old gelding by Mutakddim from the Bates Motel mare Oh Boy Valoy, Okie Time earned $30,000 with the victory to move his career total to $160,532.
The Richter Family Trust and Pettinger both won their first Silver Goblin Stakes while Von Hemel won his second.
