Three $40,000 Ohio Sires Stakes spotlight harness racing 2-year-old pacing fillies in Leg 3 of this series, this evening at Scioto Downs. First race post time is 6:30 pm, ET.

Eight previous leg winners in this four-bout series for Ohio-bred youngsters are returning for their various connections. Stallion McArdle and Pet Rock each have four foals competing, while Big Bad John and The Panderosa are represented by three each, with Art Official, Dragon Again, Woodstock and Yankee Cruiser each having two of their progeny racing in OSS events. As well, Allamerican Native, Believeinbruiser, Feelin Friskie, Manhardt, Shark Gesture, We Will See and World of Rocknroll are all represented by one filly each.

In the first OSS division (Race 5), five previous winners slug it out for the win.

Prsntpretynperfect, a Big Bad John lass conditioned by Brian Brown, leaves from the coveted rail slot with Ronnie Wrenn, Jr. at the lines. This brown filly is three for three thus far in her brief career, having swept both OSS legs and a $47,000 Ohio Fair Stake on July 27 at Scioto Downs. Bred by Carl Howard, Prsntpretynperfect has $63,500 in earnings for Jennifer Brown, Richard Lombardo and Josh Green.

JP Silver, owned and bred by John Poppe of Wapakoneta, OH, has blazed through both OSS legs and leaves from post four with Jeff Nisonger in the sulky. Chris Hope trains this McArdle lass, who has three wins in four starts and $42,004 in career earnings. Her mark of 1:54.3 came via her victory in Leg 2 on July 17 at Northfield.

Bad Girls Rule, a daughter of World Of Rocknroll, is the speediest member of this division, owning a mark of 1:54 that she scored via her triumph in Leg 1 at Scioto Downs on July 5. A winner of $51,450 in her career, Bad Girls Rule also captured a $47,000 Ohio Fair Stake on July 27 at Scioto Downs for the 3rd Floor Stable of Springboro, OH. This speedster was bred by Spring Haven Farm and leaves from post two with Kyle Ater in the bike.

Timothy Russell's Dirty Blonde won her OSS-Leg 2 on July 17 at Northfield Park in 1:55.4 in wire-to-wire fashion and was third to Bad Girls Rule in last week's Ohio Fair Stake at Scioto. Trained by DeShawn Minor, this Woodstock lass has amassed $30,900 from two wins and a third in four career starts. She was bred by Billy Walters, C.S. Ross and Joe McLead, and leaves from the three-hole with Josh Sutton aboard.

Big Bad Goldie has finished first (in a career best 1:55.1) and third in her OSS legs and owns a bankroll of $25,275 for owners David Wills, Richard Coad and Doug Gregory. Tye Loy conditions the Big Bad John lass, who was bred by Midland Acres. Jason Brewer drives from post five.

In the second division (Race 5), Filou Fly Fast will be trying for her sixth career victory from the rail with Tyler Smith driving for trainer Steve Carter. This Allamerican Native daughter won Leg 2 in 1:56.1 at Northfield Park on July 17 after being scratched sick from Leg 1. Bred by Thomas Cave, this winner of $29,052 is leased by Chuck Grubbs of Louisville, KY.

Alan Keith's Kay Again won Leg 1 on July 5 at Scioto Downs in a blistering 1:53.4 and was fifth in Leg 2, before rebounding to finish a close second in an Ohio Fair Stake on July 27 at Scioto Downs. Mike Roth trains the $34,890-winning homebred daughter of the ill-fated sire Dragon Again. Josh Sutton gets the nod once more aboard Kay Again from post ten.

Shakewhatmamagaveu heads up the third OSS contest (Race 9) with Randy Tharps driving from post ten for trainer Ron Steck. This Art Official filly was second by a head to Big Bad Goldie in Leg 1 on July 5 at Scioto, timed in 1:55.1, then captured Leg 2 on July 17 in 1:53.4 at Northfield Park. She was a strong second to Bad Girls Rule in last week's $47,000 Ohio Fair Stake at Scioto Downs. Bred by the Tar Heel Stable, Shakewhatmamagaveu is owned by Don and Marcia Brake of Marysville, OH and sports a $41,750 career bankroll.

Ohio Sires Stakes action continues Saturday night, Aug. 12 at Northfield Park with three divisions of sophomore pacing fillies, along with the $300,000 Milstein featuring national standouts Fear The Dragon and Downbytheseaside--both conditioned by Ohio's Brian Brown.
