Charlie May, the 3-2 favorite, set a national season's mark in the second of three $40,000 Ohio Sires Stakes for 2-year-old pacing colts on a balmy Saturday night, July 25 at Northfield Park.
The youngster was clocked in 1:53 for driver Danny Noble and trainer Steve Carter. Owned by breeder Don R. Tiger, the son of McArdle has amassed $115,000 in his brief career and now has three wins in three starts. Hardt At Work was second at 4-5 odds for trainer-driver Mike Micallef with 12-1 Jackie Moon getting up for third with Chris Page driving. Charlie May, a chocolate brown colt, won OSS Leg One in 1:54.2 for these same connections with a similar, front-stepping effort.
Laughagain Hanover received a perfect steer by driver Peter Wrenn in the first OSS contest, timed in 1:55. The son of McArdle is trained by Laura Searway for owners Cimaglio, Richardson and Gilmartin and also captured Leg One of this series on July 11 at Scioto Downs, stopping the timer in a career best 1:54.3. Laughagain Hanover left the gate at 9-5 odds, finishing a length in front of 3-5 Home Team (Ronnie Wrenn, Jr.) with Dcrockinmoondancer (Kurt Sugg) third at 9-1 odds. Laughagain now has $40,248 in earnings and is three for three lifetime.
I'm Sorry Man, the 8-1 choice, overcame the leading 2-5 favorite Odds On Pick Six (Peter Wrenn) to capture the third OSS in 1:53.2. Driven by Kayne Kauffman for breeder-owner Matt Rowe, the Mr Apples gelding was third in OSS Leg One and this second round triumph was his first career victory, upping his career earnings to $42,800. Big Money Mike, at 9-1 in the wagering, was third for Ronnie Wrenn, Jr.
