The well-traveled Queen Of The Pride has been named the 2019 Ohio 3-year-old pacing filly of the year.
Queen Of The Pride, the daughter of McArdle-Lioness Hanover by Western Ideal raced in five states, Ohio, Indiana, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania, as well as Canada in 2019. She was the winner of eight of 19 starts. Owned by Frank Chick and trained by Kevin Lare, Queen Of The Pride earned $385,597 in 2019. Queen Of The Pride’s biggest win of the year was the Ohio Sires Stakes at Northfield in August, winning in 1:51.3.
Queen Of The Pride was bred by Bradley Wallace of Findlay, Ohio.
Tony Hall drove Queen Of The Pride to five of her eight wins in 2019 and said she always had a winning attitude.
“She is a very athletic filly with a lot of natural desire that made her a force to be reckoned with," said Hall. "She wanted to win as badly as I did.”
Queen Of The Pride will be honored at the Ohio Harness Horsemen’s Association and United States Trotting Association’s District 1 Annual Awards Banquet Jan. 18 at the University Area Marriott in Columbus, Ohio.
