On the same day she was named a 2011 category award winner by the Florida Standardbred Breeders And Owners Association (FSBOA), the trotting mare Wildfire responded with a lifetime best performance.
The 5-year-old daughter of Famously-Giant Wonder was positioned perfectly second over by Dan Clements on the cover of favorite Feel L A and driver Tom Sells in a $4,000 purse conditioned trot. In the stretch, Wildfire was the best of her career as she stormed home when shown open road to stop the clock in 1:56.3. Feel L A held the place position and Dukester in rein to Doug Brown was third.
Joe Kroll trains Wildfire for owners Leah and Ron Schaefer of Weirsdale, FL. She was named the top state bred older trotting mare of 2011 on the strength of 9 wins from 33 starts for earnings of $34,340. The FSBOA annual awards will be presented at the annual Hall Of Fame gala on Feburary 19 hosted by the Florida chapter of the United States Harness Writers Association.
