Feelin Lika Winner sure did when he won the Director of Agriculture Pace for 3-year-old colt pacers at Scioto Downs Racino on Saturday in an eye-opening 1:51.4.  Part of the week’s State Fair races, two divisions of sophomore colts went to the gate for $30,000 each.

Taking back from the five hole to last in a six horse field while the lead horses battled it out up front to a 26.4 opening quarter, Feelin Lika Winner made a move before the half  to come first up and challenge pacesetter Outdoor Fever and Greg Grismore.  Taking the lead by the time they hit the three-quarter pole, Feelin Lika Winner and Kayne Kauffman came home in 28.2 to win by three-quarters of a length.

Owned by trainer Scott Mogan, Diamond Chip Stable (Judy Weber), AWS Stables (Allen and Carol Schmidthorst) and Charlie Guiler, the gelding by Feelin Friskie now has six wins in 16 starts and $126,985 in career earnings.  The mile on Saturday set a new lifetime record for Feelin Lika Winner.

The winner in the other 3-year-old colt division was race favorite That Friske Feelin and Tony Hall for trainer Ron Burke.  Also a Feelin Friskie gelding, that Friske Feelin won in 1:53.3 over Hanky L (Jack Dailey).  He is owned by Howard Taylor, Edwin Gold and Richard Lombardo and has now earned over $100,000 lifetime.

Feelin Friskie colts dominated the Ohio State Fair races on Saturday when two of his freshmen won their $34,000 divisions as well.  Big Bossman (Greg Grismore) won by a head over Friskie Adam (Chip Noble) in 1:54.4.  The gelding used a 27.1 last quarter to win for trainer Doug Hinklin and owner Parent Racing Stable LLC (Brent & Tiffany Parent).  Hawks Cry Hoboken (Dan Noble) won for trainer Virgil Morgan, Jr. and owners Carl Howard, Herres Stables LLC (Steve & Natalie Herres) and Gerrie Tucker.

Saturday’s races concluded the State Fair weekend of racing, but just like the Ohio State Fair, there is one more day to be had.  Sunday (Aug 4) will be a special race card to make up for one of the days of racing lost back in June.  A special post of 5:00 p.m. will start off the 11 race card.
