OKLAHOMA CITY, OK–APRIL 13, 2024–Cowboys R Myheros defeats heavy favorite Rj Having Fun in a slight upset for the fastest qualifying time to the $169,175 Remington Park Oklahoma-Bred Derby on Saturday.

Guided by jockey Edwin Escobedo, Cowboys R Myheros never lost focus and came to the lead mid call for the win by 1/2-length in :20.033 seconds. The son of Flying Cowboy 123 clocked an 85 speed index while running into a 15 mph headwind. The 400-yard upset paid $20.40 to win on 8/1 odds.

Tonight's victory is only the second time the three-year-old gelding has visited the winner's circle for his owner/breeder Brenda Reiswig. He was a finalist in last year's Black Gold C&G Futurity and the Northlands Juvenile Stakes. The $8,784 winner's share of the purse increases Cowboys R Myheros' career earnings to $24,957.

Trainer Jason Olmstead conditioned the sorrel gelding out of Red Velvet Hero by Valiant Hero, as well as two other qualifiers Cardiac Cowboy and Midnight Politics.
