Shotgun Kowboy bypasses Cornhusker, focusing on Remington Park

Shotgun Kowboy, who in his last start won the Grade 3, $200,000 Lone Star Park Handicap, was not entered in the upcoming Cornhusker at Prairie Meadows and the front-runner will instead focus on stakes at the Remington Park meet, according to trainer C.R. Trout. 

Trout had been monitoring the make up of the field for the Cornhusker. 

Trout said Shotgun Kowboy would now come under serious consideration for races like the $175,000 Governor's Cup on Sept. 30 and the $175,000 Oklahoma Classics Cup on Oct. 19 - with both at Remington. The Classics Cup is for Oklahoma-breds and Remington is the home track for Trout.
