This last week of sires stakes action In Pennsylvania and Ohio saw Hickory Lane Stallions MCARDLE and TRAINFORTHEFUTURE offspring win in impressive fashion.
On Friday evening, August 16th at The Meadows, McArdle two year old fillies TYRA (McArdle-Pernilla) and MARYBELLE finished 1-2 in the $87,245.00 divion of the PASS 2 year old filly pace. Driven by Tim Tetrick, TYRA took command at the quarter pole and never looked back crushing the filed by 3 1/2 lengths in a blistering 1:52.4f. Jim King, Jr. trains and CC Racing, LLC, Illinois own this fine, mare.
Sunday evening, August 18th saw Hickory Lane Farm homebred SOUL TRAIN (Trainforthefuture-Dances on Air) sit patiently until the three-quarter pole and then he unleashed a wicked brush to cruise past his foes down the lane to win by 2 3/4 lengths in 2:03f in a $30,000.00 division of the Ohio Sires Stakes for two year old trotting colts at Raceway Park. SOUL TRAIN has now banked over $48,000.00 this year as a two year old and will undoubtedly be one of the favorites in the $150,000.00 OSS Final on September 7th at Scioto Downs. Congratulations to all!
