Filly favorites Rose Run Sydney and Gabbysloosechange each captured their respective $40,000 Ohio Sires Stakes contests on Saturday night, June 17 at Northfield Park in round two of the four-leg series for Buckeye-bred sophomores.
Rose Run Sydney, a daughter of Triumphant Caviar out of the Angus Hall mare Stonebridge Dancer, scored a near wire-to-wire performance in the first OSS division with Jason Brewer at the lines as the 3-5 public’s choice.
Conditioned by co-owner Steve Carter for Adam Friedland, Brooklyn, NY and Rbr Racing LLC, Ashland, OH, Rose Run Sydney grabbed the lead going to the :56.4 half-mile marker and never looked back, rolling to victory in a lifetime best 1:55.3 clocking. She finished a comfortable four lengths in front of 4-1 Bamaslastchance (Aaron Merriman), with 17-1 Away My Baby (Jason Thompson) notching show honors.
The victory gave the filly—who was bred by the Rose Run Farm of Sugarcreek, OH—a perfect two-for-two in OSS competition, as she had captured Leg One on May 1 at Miami Valley Raceway in 1:58.1.
Rose Run Sydney upped her career earnings to $157,067 lifetime from 11 wins, four seconds and two thirds in 18 career starts.
Trainer Chris Beaver and co-owner Johanna Beaver’s Gabbysloosechange won her OSS division in similar style to the aforementioned Rose Run Sydney, taking control of the race at the :57.1 half, and scoring her fourth lifetime win in 1:54.4 for driver Jason Thompson.
The 2-1 homebred Credit Winner lass—who was unraced as a freshman—finished 1¼ lengths in front of her hard-trying, 1-2 stablemate, Chim Swift (Aaron Merriman), with 25-1 Vatanna (Jason Brewer) getting up for third.
Gabbysloosechance now has four wins and $48,500 in career earnings from just six lifetime starts. She won her Leg One OSS division at Miami Valley in 1:57.2 on May 1. (By Kimberly Rinker/Ohio Sires Stakes)
