            Dunn Ranch and Valeriano Racing Stables LLC’s Dexxter won the Grade, 1 $211,600 Debbie Schauf Remington Park Championship to earn a provisional berth to the Grade 1, $600,000 Champion of Champions to be held on Saturday, December 12. With the victory, Dexxter joins Bos Time Machine, the winner of the Brad McKinzie Los Alamitos Winter Championship, as the first two horses with spots in the Champion of Champions.

            Trained by Monty Arrossa, Dexxter won both of his starts at Remington Park, taking the Grade 1, $70,960 Leo Stakes on May 2 and then followed that with the Remington Park Championship on closing night at Remington Park. He was one of three horses that were sent off at 7-2 odds. Eagles Fly Higher was the slight betting favorite and ran seventh. The other 7-2 horse was Mi Amor Secreto who rallied for second, a half-length behind Dexxter.

            Dexxter stopped the timer for the 440 yards in 21.207 seconds. He beat several stakes winners and the 2018 All American Futurity winner Apocalyptical Jess in this race. Running third was Apollitical Pence, another Arrossa horse in the field, a nose behind the second-place horse.

            “People told me he might not be able to get 440 yards (Dexxter’s first time at the distance),” Arrossa said. “We had to prove it. I always like a challenge when someone says we can’t do something.”

            Dexxter is a 4-year-old gelded son of Corona Cartel out of the Tres Seis mare Tres of Linda, who won the Charger Bar Handicap at Los Alamitos in 2013. He was bred in Utah by McColee Land & Livestock and is owned by Dunn Ranch and Valeriano Racing Stables, partners of Perryton, Texas. He earned $125,622 from this purse to improve to 17 starts, seven wins, three seconds and one third for total earnings of $404,894.


            Dexxter is a well-known sprinter in California, as he competed in seven stakes races at the Orange County oval, running third in last year’s Southern California Derby and competing in both the Los Alamitos Two Million Futurity and Golden State Million Futurity. He was second in both the Big Lew Handicap and Dillingham Handicap at Los Alamitos last year.

            The Debbie Schauf Remington Park Championship, the track’s top race for older Quarter Horses, is named in honor of the longtime executive director of the Oklahoma Quarter Horse Racing Association, who died in August 2019.
