BAYERD WINS SPRINGBOARD MILE, HOLDS OFF SHOTGUN KOWBOY

OKLAHOMA CITY - Billed as the rubber match between the top 2-year-olds this season at Remington Park, the $255,000 Springboard Mile did not disappoint. Bayerd battled for the lead off the final turn, putting away High Noon Rider and then having to hold off the rally of rival Shotgun Kowboy, winning by a head in a thriller.

Bayerd had previously won the $75,000 Kip Deville Stakes with Shotgun Kowboy third in September. In November, Shotgun Kowboy won the $100,000 Clever Trevor Stakes with Bayerd as the runner-up. The Springboard Mile set up the deciding throw down.

Owned by Clark Brewster of Tulsa, Okla. and trained by Steve Asmussen, Bayerd was put into position for success by jockey Ramon Vazquez in the final turn. Nearing the top of the stretch, Bayerd moved for the front, alongside pace-setter Supermason who handled a quarter-mile in :23.22; a half-mile in :46.09 and then three-quarters of a mile in 1:11.54.
