Ohio Breeders Championship Action
Two-Year-Old Filly Trot
Guinevere Hall (Peter Wrenn, Jr.) sat back and watched Delovely Hall (Aaron Merriman) and Lights Down Low (Yannick Gingras) battle through the majority of the race and swooped past the tiring leaders to capture the first division in 1:56 4/5.
Lights Down Low held on for second, Can’t Break Rosie (Chris Page) rallied for third and Delovely Hall completed the superfecta.
Guinevere Hall is conditioned by Melanie Wrenn for M T Pockets Stable and David McDuffee. Alan Leavitt bred the Cash Hall filly.
The $55,850 second division was greatly affected by breaking trotters. The 3-5 bettor’s choice, Globetrotting (Anthony MacDonald) broke at the start, giving the lead to the 3-2 second choice, Uncle Peter’s Uncle (Brett Miller). Uncle Peter’s Uncle led the field into the final turn until she took a bad step and went off-stride.
Aqua Lillies (Yannick Gingras) pounced on the opportunity and sprinted past Lima Gold (Ronnie Wrenn, Jr.) in 1:58 3/5.
Norm Parker trained the Break The Bank K filly for breeder/owner Robert J. Key.
The $14,600 event was decided in the first sixteenth of a mile as A Tc Queenie grabbed the lead from post position five and never looked back to defeat the field of 10 in a stakes record 1:53 2/5.
The six-year-old Triumphant Caviar mare is owned by Trish Soulsby and Richard Schaut and trained by Ron Steck. A Tc Queenie is just a few dollars short of $400,000 in career earnings. She became a three-time OBC champion with the win.
