Scotch McEwen Gives Hickory Lane Its Second Triple Crown Winner in 2016
SCOTCH MCEWEN (McArdle-Forever Ivy-Stand Forever) capped off a brilliant freshman season by winning his division of the Ohio Breeder's Championship 2 year old colt pace after another McArdle colt, McLucky, was placed from first to second for interference of Scotch McEwen in the final turn. Barnabas, another McArdle colt, finished third giving McArdle a sweep in that division. Scotch's seasonal earnings have ballooned to $213,462 and he is a cinch to capture divisional honors as he, along with the Dejarmbro filly, Let's Get Started, won their divisional Triple Crown's. Congratulations to owner, Carl Atley, trainer, Jim Dailey and driver, Josh Sutton.
MCTHRILLER (McArdle-You Thrill Me-Jate Lobell) captured his division of the Ohio Breeder's Championship 2 year old colt pace in a stakes record time for 2 year old geldings in 1:53.4h. McThriller , who's seasonal earnings approach $90,000.00, will now travel to Lexington to take on the Grand Circuit colts in the Bluegrass Stakes. Congratulations and good luck to owners, NR Holdings, LLC, TLP Stables and Howard Taylor, trainer, Brian Brown and driver, David Miller.
