The two-year-old gelding trotter, Count Me In equaled the track record in winning the $20,822 Ohio Breeders Championship in Tuesday harness racing action at the Delaware County Fairgrounds.

Sam Noble III guided the Full Count son around a breaking Carolina Carl at the start and sat fifth during the :28 2/5 first quarter. Count Me In was forced to go three-wide at the half in :58 2/5 and cleared the lead before the three-quarters in 1:27 4/5. A :30 1/5 last quarter secured the 8 3/4 length victory in 1:58, equaling the mark set by Uncle Vernon in 2003.

Count Me In is owned by Patricia J. Wollam and Acadia Farms, Inc. and is conditioned by Marty Wollam.

In the second division, It's Jesse Time (Kayne Kauffman) scored a mild upset in 1:58 3/5. The freshman son of Jailhouse Jesse scored a 2 3/4 length victory over Rock N Jesse (Ray Paver) and Al Brown (Alfred Manke III).

It's Jesse Time is trained by Jerry Lighthill for Charles W. Miller of Wauseon, Ohio.
