Harness racing fans at Ocean Downs saw two Maryland Sire Stakes records fall on Sunday July 14.

The $70,000 summer final for trotting fillies went to post as race eight on a sweltering night at the ocean. Art Stafford Jr. sent HS Judy Jetson (Great George Two-Broadway Fooling) gate to wire expanding their lead at every quarter to lower the stakes and track record to 1:57.3 for three year old trotting fillies. Current News closed for second. Joe Carroll trains for owner-breeder Cary Grady.

The rivalry between Owzitgoin and Trump That Rusty continued in the $70,000 Maryland Sire Stakes final for sophomore pacing colts and geldings. Reinsman Eddie Davis Jr. pulled Trump That Rusty (Rustys For Real-Alberts Drifter N) before the quarter to challenge the pace setting Owzitgoin (Rustys For Real) finally taking command at the ¾ pole, stretching his lead to almost four lengths in the stakes record mile of 1:54.1. Owzitgoin maintained the place position. Trainer Dylan Davis co-owns the winner with Jeffrey Billings, Warren Racing is the breeder.

The sophomore summer finals continue on Wed. July 17th with the pacing fillies and trotting colts and geldings.
