Sessions Quinalla for Oakland Park in the Oaks

Oakland Park Stud’s resident stallion Sessions claimed the quinella in yesterday’s Listed Belmont Oaks with his two daughters and paddock mates Ihts Closing Inn first past the post and Sesswa a fast finshing 2nd.

Ihts Closing Inn was beautifully placed by jockey William Pike, sitting just behind the leaders throughout until the straight when he made his move and proved too strong to the line, with Sesswa (Morton Racing) flashing home for 2nd under Brad Parnham.

After the race trainer Adam Durrant was full of praise for winner saying she is one of the toughest fillies he has trained.

Ihts Closing Inn is from the Oakland mare Ihtsatune and has now recorded 7 wins from 14 starts and amassed $338,538 in career earnings.

Congratulations to both our trainers Durrant Racing and Morton Racing on an excellent outcome and to both jockeys Willie The Wizard Pike and Brad Parnham on great riding. A big cheers to our co-owner Raff Barbaro who is in both of these fillies.
