  • Dejarmbro Fillies Win Three of Four Ohio Sires Stakes Divisions; Let's Get Started Breaks Track Record

    Jul 20, 2016
         Tuesday, July 19th at Scioto Downs was a big day for DEJARMBRO fillies as they dominated the first three of four divisions of OSS action starting out with LETS GET STARTED (Dejarmbro-Tori-Ann-SJ's Photo) smashing the track record for two year old trotting fillies at Scioto trotting the mile in 1:56.3f in the first race.  What was so impressive about this mile was that LETS GET STARTED had to track down from 8 lengths behind the two front runners who are two of the better trotting fillies in the State of Ohio. While expending considerable energy just to catch up with them at the 3/4 pole in a blistering 1:26.4, LETS GET STARTED then came first over against both of them and wore them down in the stretch to win by a length in her record breaking mile in only her second lifetime start and first lifetime win! This superb filly is owned by Dick and Joyce McClellan, is trained by Bobby Brower and was masterfully driven  by Josh Sutton. Congratulations to all on a memorable race.

         Picking right up where LETS GET STARTED left off is the beautiful and powerful MADEIRA AS (Dejarmbro-Madeline It-Daguet Rapide) who made it 2 for 2 in OSS action by wearing down her opposition in a workmanlike 1:58.2f. A big, strong and physically imposing filly, MADEIRA AS came first over and just overpowered her competition drawing off by open lengths. MADEIRA AS is owned by John Magnusson's ACL STUTERI AB and Kjell Johansson, trained by Mr. Magnusson's daughter, Annette Lorentzon and patiently driven by Chris Page. Congratulations to all.

         In the third division, PURPLE SONA (Dejarmbro-Sonalona Hanover-Donato Hanover) did not waste any time going right to the front and easily wiring her field in a 3 length victory in 1:58.2f .PURPLE SONA was tons the best and has yet to be truly tested this year winning all of her starts and her two OSS starts by open lengths. This classy filly is owned by George Berlin's Acadia Farms, Inc., Dale Sweet, Toledo, Oh, and G & B Racing. Miles and Marty Wollam train this classy filly while Kurt Sugg drives her. Congratulations to her connections.

         Two year old trotting fillies will be back in action next Wednesday, July 27th when the Ohio State Fair Stakes races begin. We anxiously look forward to watching these fabulous fillies continue to do their thing as the season progresses. They are fun to watch!
