Freshman filly pacers battle in OSS action
« Return to News
"Jenny bought this filly at the Sunbury sale for $7,000," Brian offered. "She wasn't a real big filly and she still isn't that big of a horse, but she's been a good horse from day one. She wasn't the type that stood out but she did everything right—she trained down well, is easy to take care of and very professional on the racetrack."
Bred by Carl Howard, Prsntpretynperfect was sent off at 19-1 odds, returning $40.60 on a two dollar win ticket, and finished three-quarters of a length ahead of 7-1 Tenwillgetutwenty (Jason Brewer), with 5-1 Tur Lura Lural notching third for driver Kayne Kauffman.
"The great thing about this filly is there's simply no ‘quit' in her," Brown added.
Prsntpretynperfect is out of the Towner's Big Guy mare Wildfire Princess and is a full sister to Prince Giovanni p, 3, 1:54.4h ($60,954) and to Banderbear p, 3, 1:53.3f ($23,075).
Ryan and Nichole Stahl's Lucille Amarone captured the second OSS division in 1:55.2. Kent Sherman trains the chestnut daughter by The Panderosa, who scored her first career victory in as many tries. Leaving the gate at 7-1 odds, Lucille Amarone bested 7-5 Tiffany Rock AS (Chris Page) by a length, with 5-1 Lily Grace third (Tyler Smith).
"After we bought this filly last year, I didn't have anything to train her with, in terms of company, so I gave her to Kent (trainer Sherman) and he's done a great job of getting her to the races," Stahl, the filly's driver, explained.
Lucille Amarone is the ninth foal out of the Pacific Rocket mare Pacific Bay p,4,1:53.3f ($179,035) and is a half-sister to Million Dollar Bay (Million Dollar Cam) p,4,1:55.1f ($218,236), Smithers (Sand Shooter) p,5,1:53.f ($92,088) and Ralph (Sand Shooter) p, 3, 1:54s ($32,583), etc.
John Poppe's JP Silver stormed to a commanding 1:55.4, near five-length triumph in the third OSS event. Driven by Jeff Nisonger for trainer Chris Hope, the homebred grey McArdle lass upped her career earnings to $22,004 with her second lifetime victory in as many starts. Missplacedrock (Jason Brewer, 9-2) was second, while 7-5 Checks On The Way was third for Jeremy Smith.
"She's been phenominal since day one," Poppe, a resident of Wapakoneta, OH, stated. "Jeff gave her a perfect trip and didn't abuse her. She was just cruising in the lane."
JP Silver, the 3-1 choice, is the eighth foal out the Jeg Laag mare Wings Of Silver p,3,1:57.3h ($20,513) and is a half-sister to Silver River (Red River Hanover) p,7,1:54.3f ($70,398) and to JP Oscar (Stand Forever) p,2,1:54.2s ($37,033).
Kay Again rewarded her backers at 5-2 as she swept to victory for Chris Page and trainer Mike Roth. The homebred Dragon Again filly is owned and was bred by Alan Keith of Pataskala, OH and stopped the timer in 1:53.4 in her first triumph in two tries.
Kay Again finished three-quarters of a length in front of 7-2 Believe In Waco (Art McIlmurray), who had led throughout most of the mile before being caught by the winner. Grimalkin, a 37-1 longshot, finished 8½ lengths back for Josh Sutton.
As the fourth foal out of the Real Desire mare Warrawee Kay, Kay Again is a full sister to Kay's Dragon Lady p,3,1:54f ($187,215) and has half-siblings in: Kay's Delight (Bettor's Delight) p,2,1:54.4f ($51,392) and Challenge Accepted (Somebeachsomewhere) p,3,1:53.2f ($26,990).
Danny Noble guided Bad Girls Rule to a 1:54, wire-to-wire clocking for the 3rd Floor Stables of Springboro, OH in the fifth OSS event. Trained by Jim Dailey, the daughter by World Of Rocknroll picked up her second straight victory as she had previously won a Scioto Downs overnight on June 21 in 1:57. Her career earnings now stand at $24,750.
Bad Girls Rule, at 3-1 odds, finished 1½ lengths in front of 9-2 Shadows On Time (Ronnie Wrenn, Jr.), while 2-1 Thrill Seeker got up for third with Mike Wilder in the sulky. Bad Girls Rule is the second foal out of the unraced Allamerican Native mare Bad Girls Club and is a half-sister to Light One Up (Woodstock) p,3,Q1:58f ($22,688).
Big Bad Goldie got a perfect trip to emerge victorious for Chris Page and trainer Tye Loy in 1:55.1 in the final OSS test, holding off 9-2 Shakewhatmamagaveu (Ronnie Wrenn, Jr.) gamely by a head. Merciless finished a solid third at odds of 6-1 for driver Tyler Smith.
The 9-1 mild longshot, a Big Bad John filly bred by Midland Acres, is owned by the Ohio-trio of David Wills, Richard Coad and Doug Gregory. She is the third foal out of the tough Camluck mare, Goldies Cam p, 4, 1:54.1h ($155,915) and has half-sisters in Goldies Mach (Mach Three) p,3, 1:53.3s ($160,767) and Goldies Bad Girl (Badlands Hanover) p,5,1:55.1s ($58,309).
