The first Quaker Stakes of the season were held on Saturday (June 30) at the Big Butler Fairgrounds in Butler, PA. Quaker Stakes, for PA-sired or PA-owned harness racing horses, were featured in all four divisions.

The first event of the day held the least drama, as Cory Kreiser’s Sheza Skipalong was the lone entrant in the $2,413 Quaker 2YO Pace, resulting in a walkover. After getting to the half in 1:09, the Village Jolt filly completed her mile in 2:14.3.

In the lone $2,541 division of the Quaker 2YO Trot, Broadway Vino was a 2:13.4 winner for trainer/driver Bill Daugherty. Susan Daugherty owns the Broadway Hall gelding.

Two divisions of the 3YO Trot were next, with victories going to Try My Way (Chip Chip Hooray) and Ona Wyoming Trip (Bedford County). Trainer/driver Aaron Johnston guided Try My Way to a wire-to-wire win in 2:13.2 despite making a break near the half mile marker. Aaron co-owns with his brother, Shawn. Ona Wyoming Trip came from behind to earn a 2:10.1 win for owner Heidi Weaver and trainer/driver Brian Weaver.

In the final race of the day, the $2,416 Quaker 3YO Pace, Allstar Life gave Kreiser his second win of the day, pacing in 2:06.3. A filly by Four Starzzz Shark, Allstar Life is now a two-time winner on the season.

The PA Fair Circuit now moves on to the Dayton Fairgrounds, with racing set for 3PM on Saturday.
