Welder Seeks his ninth straight win at Remington Park Friday

Local sprint superstar Welder is set to return to action in Friday night's $70,000 Silver Goblin Stakes, seeking his ninth consecutive triumph at Remington Park.

Welder will go to post on Friday at approximately 9:55 p.m., the seventh race of a nine-race card. A ninth consecutive win at Remington Park would move Welder past She's All In's eight in a row and into a sole spot right behind the all-time streak leader for Remington Park Thoroughbreds. He would be in the rear-view mirror of Slide Show, who has the record at 11 in a row in Oklahoma City, set in the early 1990s.

Welder, owned by Ra-Max Farms (Clayton Rash) in Claremore, Okla., is approaching $1 million in earnings for his career. The 6-year-old gelded son of The Visualiser, out of the Tiznow mare Dance Softly, has won 20-of-30 starts lifetime and $928,998. A win in this stakes race would put him at a little more than $970,000.

Welder is the heavy favorite in the morning-line at 2-5 odds. His Remington Park winning streak started on Nov. 17, 2017 when he won the first of his two previous Silver Goblin Stakes. 

Here's a look at the Silver Goblin Stakes, a 6-1/2 furlong sprint for Oklahoma-breds, in post-position and program order, with trainer, jockey and morning-line odds:

1.    Gospel Cherokey: Steve Williams, Luis Quinonez, 20-1

2.    Golden Driller: Steve Williams, Walter De La Cruz, 30-1

3.    Quality Rocket: Boyd Caster, Jose Medina, 12-1
