Kikimora, the daughter of Triumphant Caviar–Nessa Rose by Chip Chip Hooray, won three of her nine starts and finished second in three other races for owner-trainer Chris Beaver and co-owner Sandra Burnett. Kikimora earned $210,196 in 2019. Kikimora won the Ohio Sire Stakes Finals at Northfield Park to highlight the year.
In addition to co-owning Kikimora. Burnett, of Wilmington, Ohio, is also the breeder.
Owner-trainer Chris Beaver says Kikimora is very professional, “She is a very tough filly. If she has a hard trip, she will hang in there.”
Beaver says Kikimora is not big but shows a lot of heart, especially when she won the Ohio Sires Stakes.
“I thought we were done on the backside. She looked like she was done, but she kept coming,” he said.
Kikimora will be honored at the Ohio Harness Horsemen’s Association and United States Trotting Association’s District 1 Annual Awards Banquet January 18, 2020 at the University Area Marriott in Columbus, Ohio.
