Hall of Fame driver David Miller teamed up with his daughter, trainer Devan Miller, to score a victory with Rose Run Princess in the second division of the Ohio Breeders Championship for 2 year-old filly trotters at the Delaware County Fair.
The daughter of Trainforthefuture was sent after the early lead set the fractions of :29.4, 1:01.2 and 1:31.3 and cruised home to score a five-length victory over Emilene's Future (Ray Paver) in 2:00.3. The winner is owned by James E. Keller of New Carlisle, OH and Jerry Allen Bell of Tipp City, OH. The heavily favored In The Grippers (Chris Page) broke at the start and was never a factor.
In the first $25,388 division Hush Hush Chip (Chris Page) defeated Emery Jean (Chip Noble) in 2:02.4. The freshman daughter of Chip Chip Hooray won for the first time this season for trainer Danny Collins and the ownership team of Lewis, Taylor, Gold and Lombardo.
With a patient drive from Chris Page, Soul Train cruised to a 7 1/2-length victory in the opening division of the 2 year-old colt trot during Tuesday action. As the Greg Coon starting gate released the field of six, Mark Headworth sent Happy Go Jamie out of post 2 and went after the early lead. The eventual winner was content to sit fourth through the opening half in 1:01.3. When Soul Train was given his orders he quickly took command down the backstretch and never looked back, stopping the timer in 2:00.3. Star Chip (Don McKirgan) was second and Fiftyshades Of Nay (David Miller) was third.
Soul Train is owned by Parent Racing Stable, R. S. Crynick and J. E. Novak and trained by Scott Cox.
In the second division Hooray For Willie went gate to wire to score in 1:58.3, a new lifetime mark. The freshman son of Master Lavec is owned by Winchester Baye Acres, Inc. of Ocala, FL and trained by the winning driver Kurt Sugg. Can'tcutthatchip (Dan Noble) and Mainstreet Willy (Chip Noble) rounded out the top three finishers. (Delaware County Fair)
