Katniss, a full sister to Dejarmbro, wins Empire Breeder's Elimination in 1:53; McDave, a 2 year old McArdle, Wins Fastest Baby Race at Mohegan Sun

Jun 15, 2015
     Two of Hickory Lane's stallions were showcased this past week. Katniss, the 3 year old full sister to Dejarmbro, drew off easily by 2 lengths in Sunday's elimination for next week's $250,000 Empire Breeder's Classic final at Vernon Downs in New York in 1:53. Owned By Mario Mazza and trained by Ake Svanstedt, this filly is rounding into form at the right time and looks now to be one of the top 3 year old trotting fillies in the country. Watch out for her going forward.

     What can you say about McArdle? With only 37 foals from his last Pennsylvania crop, he is at it again with another top 2 year old colt named McDave (McArdle-Southwind Piper-Artsplace) who blistered the mile at Mohegan Sun Pocono in a swift 1:56.1 last Friday drawing off by over six lengths under no urging at all. It was the fastest pacing mile of the day for 2 year old colt pacers and his second straight victory. Erv Miller trains this colt. Look for him making a huge impact this year in Pennsylvania.

     Hickory Lane will be selling 12 Dejarmbro's and 16 McArdle's at the Ohio Selected Jug Sale September 19th at Eden Park, Sunbury, Ohio.
