Favourites Prove Best In Ohio Sires Stakes
Jun 17

Filly favourites Rose Run Sydney and Gabbysloosechange each captured their respective $40,000 Ohio Sires Stakes (OSS) contests on Saturday night (June 17) in round two of the four-leg series for Buckeye-bred sophomores.

Rose Run Sydney, a daughter of Triumphant Caviar out of the Angus Hall mare Stonebridge Dancer, scored a near wire-to-wire performance in the first OSS division with Jason Brewer at the lines as the 3-5 publicís choice.

Conditioned by co-owner Steve Carter for Adam Friedland and Rbr Racing LLC., Rose Run Sydney grabbed the lead going to the :56.4 half-mile marker and never looked back, rolling to victory in a lifetime-best 1:55.3 clocking. She finished a comfortable four lengths in front of 4-1 Bamaslastchance (Aaron Merriman), with 17-1 Away My Baby (Jason Thompson) notching show honours.

The victory gave the filly, who was bred by the Rose Run Farm of Sugarcreek, Ohio, a perfect two-for-two in OSS competition, as she had captured the first leg on May 1 at Miami Valley Raceway in 1:58.1.

Rose Run Sydney upped her career earnings to $157,067 lifetime from 11 wins, four seconds and two thirds in 18 career starts.

Trainer Chris Beaver and co-owner Johanna Beaverís Gabbysloosechange won her OSS division in similar style to the aforementioned Rose Run Sydney, taking control of the race at the :57.1 half, and scoring her fourth lifetime win in 1:54.4 for driver Jason Thompson.

The 2-1 homebred Triumphant Caviar lass, who was unraced as a freshman, finished 1 1/4 lengths in front of her hard-trying, 1-2 stablemate, Chim Swift (Aaron Merriman), with 25-1 Vatanna (Jason Brewer) getting up for third.

Gabbysloosechance now has four wins and $48,500 in career earnings from just six lifetime starts. She won her first OSS division at Miami Valley in 1:57.2 on May 1.
