  • Lets Get Started, Madeira As and Mybrowneyedgirl Shine in Ohio State Fair Action

    Jul 28, 2016
         Wednesday evening kicked off the Ohio State Fair Stakes for 2016 at Scioto Downs and Hickory Lane sired offspring were front and center winning three of the seven divisions and finishing second or third in six of the seven divisions. 

         Starting off the action in the first race is the super-impressive freshman filly trotter, LET"S GET STARTED (Dejarmbro-Tori Ann-SJ's Photo). Fresh off her track record performance last week, LET"S GET STARTED impressed the spectators again with a gutsy first over trip against the favorite, wore her down and trotted on to a 2 length victory in 1:57.1f for owners Dick and Joyce McClelland, trainer Bobby Brower and driver Josh Sutton. LETS GET STARTED now has earnings in excess of $50,000.

         DEJARMBRO fillies made it two for three when MADEIRA AS (Dejarmbro-Madeleine It-Daguet Rapide) opportunistically raced to the from at the quarter pole and never looked back for her third straight victory. She is now undefeated in her young career already banking over $60,000. Congratulations to owners, Acl Stutteri, Kjell Johansson, trainer Annette Lorentzon and driver Chris Page.

         Concluding the evening in State Fair action was the sharp performance by the MCARDLE filly MYBROWNEYEDGIRL (McArdle-Christinella Bella-A Stud Named Sue) who rode a pocket trip to the top of the stretch and then exploded down the lane to win by a length and a half in a snappy 1:55.2f. Registering her first win of the year, this talented filly went off at a ridiculous 47-1thus paying off handsomely for her backers. Congratulations to owners Lomangino Standardbreds of New Jersey and Jennifer Brown, trainer Brian Brown and driver Ronnie Wrenn, Jr.

         Both MCARDLE and DEJARMBRO continue their impressive opening years as sires in Ohio. Not only are they the leading sires of stake wins in Ohio for their respective gates but both rank second nationally in total money won . DEJARMBRO is first nationally in the total number of two year old winners to date with 33, which is absolutely an impressive total.

         We are in the process of bringing our yearlings in from the pastures to groom them for the upcoming Fall yearling sales. Please feel free to call the Farm and come out and inspect this impressive group. We feel you will like what you see! Stake Fair Action continues Thursday evening for 2 year old colts and fillies at Scioto. No doubt DEJARMBRO and MCARDLE colts will be well represented.
