Another pair of “Claim To Fame” late-closing series got underway at Miami Valley Raceway on Monday afternoon (Jan. 14) as two divisions of $8,000 claiming mares and two divisions of $15,000 claiming trotters went postwar
Susie’s Soul (Jason Brewer) won the fastest split for the distaffers with a 1:56.1 upset over Endeavors Ladyluck (Trevor Smith) and Bad Glamour Girl (Chris Page). The winner, owned by Grant Wilfong and trained by Jeff Brewer, paid $44.40.
Dolly’s Girl (Trace Tetrick) proved best in the second division, topping Carrie’s Desire (Brett Miller) and Luna Hanover (Trevor Smith) in 1:56.3. Rhonda Manship owns the 7-5 favorite who was harnessed by Pat Melloy Jr. for the first time.
Mikey Hanover (Tetrick) wired the quickest trot division in 1:57.1. The 7-2 second choice beat favored Winwood Scout (Brett Miller) and Mego Moss (Mike Oosting). Brandon Bartley was owner of Mikey Hanover for this start, but the 10-year-old gelding was one of three claimed from the contest.
The other trot division lit up the toteboard, when Sarah Gator (Chris Page) downed Fleet Bumblebee (Dan Noble) and Undercover Strike (Simon Allard) in 1:58.1. Dispatched at 36-1, the Mervin Schmucker trainee—owned by Richard Ruffles—paid $75.40 for a $2 win wager. (Miami Valley)
