Stand Forever Three Year Olds Dominate Ohio Sires Stakes Action at Lebanon Raceway

May 06, 2013

Ohio Sires Stakes action kicked the season off Friday at Lebanon Raceway and STAND FOREVER three year old colts and fillies took three of the four $30,000.00 divisions in convincing fashion.

Starting the weekend off on Friday was FOREVER LA NIGH (Stand Forever-Game Madonna) who breezed to an easy wire to wire victory in 1:57.4h for owners Bruce and Patricia Soulsby, driver Tony Hall and trainer Ron Steck.

Saturday night saw trainer Tom Brinkerhoff sweep the two divisions of the colt pace with a pair of colts owned by Rebecca Ewing and Leonard Buckner, both colts, by the way, were born and raised at Hickory Lane Farm.  MY MISTER E (Stand Forever-She's a Ruff One) carried over his strong finish to his two year old campaign with a ridiculously easy wire to wire win in 1:58h for Rebecca Ewing. Not to be outdone, OUTDOOR FEVER (Stand Forever-Bang the Door) was declared the winner in his heat when another Stand Forever, FIRETOWERS STAND, was disqualified for interference nullifying a one-two finish for the Stand colts. OUTDOOR FEVER's winning time was the fastest of the evening, 1:57h for his owner, Leonard Buckner. It should be quite a battle this year between these two fine colts; can't wait for the second leg of action! Congratulations to all and best wishes for a successful 2013 campaign.
