Llano Teller wins $596K Remington Park Futurity
OKLAHOMA CITY -- Llano Teller started quickly and held off long-shot American Runaway to win the $596,000 Grade 1 Remington Park Futurity on Saturday night.
The 2-year-old Texas-bred son of 2005 All American Futurity winner Teller Cartel covered the 330 yards in 16.512 seconds under jockey Freddie Martinez. Llano Teller, off at 6-1 odds, remained undefeated in three career starts for a Llano, Texas, ownership group led by Terry Wooten.
Like his sire did in the All American Futurity, Llano Teller won on a sloppy track, the result of continuous rain that fell most of the day in Oklahoma City.
Trained by Heath Reed, Llano Teller paid $14.20, $6.40 and $4.80. American Futurity went off at 48-1 odds and paid $39.80 and 17.40. Pyc Takes All paid $7.20.
