The Grade 3, $400,000 Oklahoma Derby has collected a quality field for the Sept. 26 renewal at Remington Park. A cast of previous derby winners are featured in a field of eight to contest the 1 1/8 miles.

The Oklahoma Derby headlines a stakes-laden program on Sept. 26, including the $200,000 Remington Park Oaks (G3).

Warrant, from the strong barn of trainer Brad Cox, winner of the $300,000 Texas Derby in May at Lone Star Park, has been made the morning-line favorite at 5-2 odds. The Oklahoma Derby came up tough to determine a morning-line favorite, with three past derby winners all extremely close in the equation. Joel Rosario will come into Remington Park to ride Warrant. He also was the pilot in the colt’s score in the Texas Derby, over the slop on May 31.

Mr. Wireless, a two-time derby winner, has entered the Oklahoma Derby from the barn of trainer Bret Calhoun. Triumphant in the $500,000 West Virginia Derby  (G3) at Mountaineer Park on Aug. 7 and before that, the $300,000 Indiana Derby (G3) at Indiana Grand on July 7, Mr. Wireless will be ridden by Ramon Vazquez. Remington Park odds-maker Jerry Shottenkirk has set Mr. Wireless at 3-1 odds.

Super Stock, winner of the $1,000,000 Arkansas Derby (G1) in April at Oaklawn Park has been tabbed the third choice at 7-2 odds. Recently victorious in the $200,000 Ellis Park Derby in Kentucky on Aug. 15, Super Stock is trained by Steve Asmussen, racing’s all-time winningest trainer, and will be ridden by Ricardo Santana, the hottest jockey on Remington Park’s biggest day since the mid-2010s.

Super Stock’s Arkansas Derby win punched his ticket to the $3 million Kentucky Derby in May, where he finished 16th in a field of 19

Trainer Karl Broberg has entered Flash Of Mischief, fresh off his score in the $250,000 St. Louis Derby at Fanduel Fairmount Park. Joe Talamo handled the colt in his last derby and will be in for the mount again in the Oklahoma Derby. Flash Of Mischief is at 8-1 in the morning line.

The Oklahoma Derby will go as the 11th race of 12 at 9:11 p.m. EDT.
