Biggest Oaklawn win: 2017 Rainbow Stakes

  • Staton Flurry’s family owns several parking lots around Oaklawn, which only fueled his desire a child for another type of ownership one day.
  • Flurry purchased his first horse (Let’s Get Fiscal) March 23, 2012, at Oaklawn, a $15,000 claim that occurred shortly before graduating with a bachelor’s degree in business administration from nearby Henderson State University.
  • Had six horses in training in late 2017 – five with Brad Cox, Oaklawn’s third-leading trainer in 2017 – and one with Karl Broberg, perennially the country’s winningest trainer.
  • Recorded his first Oaklawn stakes victory at the 2017 meeting with Five O One (named for Hot Springs’ area code) in the $100,000 Rainbow.
  • Campaigns grass standout Mr. Misunderstood, a son of 2011 Arkansas Derby winner Archarcharch who captured the Commonwealth Turf Stakes (G3) Nov. 11 at Churchill Downs. Other top horses raced include stakes winners Little Miss Flurry, Patchofbadweather and Uncle Brennie.
  • Purchased a full brother to 2017 Southwest Stakes winner One Liner after the colt failed to meet his reserve at the 2017 Keeneland September Yearling Sale. Flurry named the colt Trivista after the historic neighborhood adjacent to Oaklawn the owner grew up in.
