Claimer of the Week: No change necessary

Dontchangetrainers was last before the stretch, swung very wide and rallied to pass all foes and win the fourth race at Remington Park last Wednesday night. The bay gelding took the race for $10,000 claimers by a length and returned $14.20 to his supporters. It was the seventh lifetime win for Dontchangetrainers, who changed barns about a month ago when claimed by trainer J.R. Caldwell. Ridden by Jareth Loveberry, the son of Henny Hughes covered the one mile and 70 yards event in 1:43.69 on the main track in Okie City. Owned by Brian Poppenberg, the 4 year old Kentucky bred has earned $109,000 in career earnings and finished in the money in 17 of 31 lifetime races.
