Desert Vixen Prospect Oilgonewile in Thursday Allowance Feature
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (July 28, 2008) – Chester Bishop and partners’ 2-year-old filly Oilgonewile made a big impression winning her career debut on June 28 at Calder Race Course by 3 ½ lengths for trainer Kirk Ziadie, and will likely be favored in her second start in Thursday’s ‘a other than’ allowance at 5 ½ furlongs with jockey Elver Nunez getting the return call.
A chestnut daughter of Montbrook, Oilgonewile was a $65,000 OBS March 2-year-old sales purchase and was well backed at less than 3-to-1 in her first start at 4 ½ furlongs. A good effort Thursday would likely earn her a berth in the $100,000 Desert Vixen Division of the Florida Stallion Stakes on Sat., Aug. 16.
Completing the field for Thursday’s feature are Tutti Stable and partners’ Sweet Repent, Manoel Cruz; Stride Rite Racing and NTS Stable’s Tiger’s Song, Paco Lopez; Harvey Zitron and Darrell Cohen’s Wheresthewireshirl, Javier Santiago; and Carlos Munoz’ Bridge to Gold, Carlos Olivero.
