Winning for the third time in as many starts at the Will Rogers Downs meet, Inagoodway scored a 2 ¼-length victory in Monday’s More Than Even Stakes for Oklahoma-bred fillies and mares. Ridden by Curtis Kimes for trainer Roger Engel, the 4-year-old filly clocked one mile and 70 yards in 1:41.23.
Bred by Mike Castor, Inagoodway has now earned $112,662 for owners Steve Dupy, Kent Blair and Mike Caster with a record of 10-5-2-1. Prior to his first career stakes win, she picked up an allowance win and a victory against $15,000 claimers at Will Rogers. Inagoodway is a daughter of the Storm Cat stallion Save Big Money, who stands at Mighty Acres in Pryor, Oklahoma.
C.R. Trout’s Hailstorm Slew, winner of the Great Lady M. Stakes earlier in the meet, finished second with Chaparella in third.
The More Than Even is named for the Oklahoma-bred mare, also trained by Engel, who won 15 of 35 starts and more than $560,000. The 2013 Oklahoma Horse of the Year won four stakes at Will Rogers.
