Columbus, OH --- Hambletonian Oaks elimination winner Spirit To Win died Monday in a jogging accident, according to a tweet posted by All American Harnessbreds, which is headed by Spirit To Win’s breeder and co-owner Fred Hertrich III.

"We are extremely sad to announce that our filly and 2015 Hambo Oaks elim winner Spirit to Win died this morning in a jogging accident," tweeted Hertrich.

Hertrich shared ownership on Spirit To Win (Cantab Hall-Celebrity Spirit) with Noblock Racing Stable. Trained by Dustin Jones, she had five wins in 11 career starts with $185,630 in earnings.

Spirit To Win and driver Brett Miller scored in 1:52.2 to win the second Hambletonian Oaks elimination this past Saturday. 

Additional information will be posted when available. The post position draw for the Oaks will take place on Monday afternoon and the Hambletonian Society is expected to make a statement at that time.
