Politicallycorrect Wins Oklahoma Derby

Politicallycorrect came rolling down the middle of the track to catch 2-1 favorite Willy Beamin and win the $400,000 Oklahoma Derby on Sunday at Remington Park. He won by three-quarters of a length over Willy Beamin, who edged third-place finisher Called to Serve. 

Politicallycorrect ($22.60) settled midpack, several lengths behind the pace set by Master Rick, who led through six furlongs in 1:12.29 while pressured by Willy Beamin. Willy Beamin took the lead near the quarter pole, as Politicallycorrect came into the stretch six wide, closed well,  and went on to cover 1 1/8 miles on a track upgraded to fast in 1:50.23.

Jockey Kent Desormeaux rode Politicallycorrect for Ken and Sarah Ramsey and trainer Wesley Ward. The Ramseys and Wards won the 2010 Oklahoma Derby with Pleasant Prince.
