Grove City, Ohio - A quick start to the year set the pace for Sectionline Bigry as he doubled his harness racing win totals from 2018 on the way to being named the 2019 Ohio Aged Pacer of the Year by the Ohio Harness Horsemen's Association.

Sectionline Bigry, the son of Pet Rock - Aquatic Yankee by Cambest won 12 of 20 races for owner Harold Lee Bauder and trainer Steve Bauder earning $222,420 in 2019.

The highlights of the year were winning the Ohio Sires Stakes Aged Pacing Championship at Scioto Downs and the Gene Riegle Memorial Open Pace at the Great Darke County Fair.

Sectionline Bigry was bred by Bauder of Delaware, Ohio, Michael Dixon of Hilliard, Ohio and Harold L. Bauder of Delaware, Ohio.

Driver Tyler Smith says Sectionline Bigry is an unbelievable horse, "He showed up for every big dance we had. He is such a handy horse that is so fast and has a will to win."

Sectionline Bigry will be honored at the Ohio Harness Horsemen's Association and United States Trotting Association's District 1 Annual Awards Banquet January 18, 2020 at the University Area Marriott in Columbus, Ohio. Tickets to the banquet are $30 each and can be purchased by calling the OHHA office at 614-221-3650. Reservation forms are also available on the OHHA website at
