Delaware, OH - Two-year-old filly trotter Hannah and harness racing driver Andy Miller cruised to a 3½ length victory in the $46,000 Standardbred trot in Wednesday (September 18) action at the Delaware County Fair.

When the field of six was sent on their way, Miller sent the eventual winner right to the front and was able to control the fractions of :28 4/5, :58 1/5 and 1:27 1/5. Hannah used a :28 4/5 last quarter to defeat Skyway Tinacious (Peter Wrenn) and Mizzy Brenda K (Mike Wilder) in 1:56, a new lifetime mark.

The Muscle Hill lass is trained by Julie Miller for the Andy Miller Stable, Dumain Haven Farm and Little E LLC.

Much like the filly trot, Keystone Eureka (Tim Tetrick) used a late brush to collar the pacesetters in the deep stretch to take the $46,800 Standardbred two-year-old filly pace.

Don't Speak (Brett Miller) received the first call, but relinquished the lead to Dance Club (Matt Kakaley).

As the field turned for home, Don't Speak looked to be the winner but Keystone Eureka timed her last rush perfectly to win by ¾ of a length over another fast closer, Coral Reef Hanover (Mike Wilder). Don't Speak and Dance Club rounded out the top four.

Sophia Lia Takes Buckette

Sophia Lia (Tim Tetrick) and French Cafe (Andy Miller) traded the lead in the first quarter of a mile, but Sophia Lia passed French Cafe in the final eighth of a mile to take the $76,125 Buckette for three-year-old trotting fillies.

The final time of 1:54 3/5 established a new lifetime mark for the Guccio filly.

Sophia Lia is trained and co-owned by Chris Beaver, Donald Robinson, RBH Ventures and William Rufenacht.

Ohio Breeders Championship Action

Two-Year-Old Filly Trot

Guinevere Hall (Peter Wrenn, Jr.) sat back and watched Delovely Hall (Aaron Merriman) and Lights Down Low (Yannick Gingras) battle through the majority of the race and swooped past the tiring leaders to capture the first division in 1:56 4/5.

Lights Down Low held on for second, Can't Break Rosie (Chris Page) rallied for third and Delovely Hall completed the superfecta.

Guinevere Hall is conditioned by Melanie Wrenn for M T Pockets Stable and David McDuffee. Alan Leavitt bred the Cash Hall filly.

The $55,850 second division was greatly affected by breaking trotters. The 3-5 bettor's choice, Globetrotting (Anthony MacDonald) broke at the start, giving the lead to the 3-2 second choice, Uncle Peter's Uncle (Brett Miller). Uncle Peter's Uncle led the field into the final turn until she took a bad step and went off-stride.

Aqua Lillies (Yannick Gingras) pounced on the opportunity and sprinted past Lima Gold (Ronnie Wrenn, Jr.) in 1:58 3/5.

Norm Parker trained the Break The Bank K filly for breeder/owner Robert J. Key.

Aged Trot

The $14,600 event was decided in the first sixteenth of a mile as A Tc Queenie grabbed the lead from post position five and never looked back to defeat the field of 10 in a stakes record 1:53 2/5.

The six-year-old Triumphant Caviar mare is owned by Trish Soulsby and Richard Schaut and trained by Ron Steck. A Tc Queenie is just a few dollars short of $400,000 in career earnings. She became a three-time OBC champion with the win.

Three-Year-Old Colt Trot

Voyage To Paris (Dan Noble) survived a long battle with Lane Of Stone (Jeff Nisonger) through sizzling opening fractions and held of late rally from Bully Boy (Aaron Merriman) to win in a track and stakes record 1:53 2/5.

Voyage To Paris scored for the seventh time in 2019 for Stephen Richard and Lana Jo Pollock. Jim Pollock, Jr. trains the Dontyouforgetit gelding.

New Zealand reinsman Dexter Dunn guided Homer Hall to a then stakes record victory in the opening division of the three-year-old colt trot in 1:53 4/5.

Homer Hall has 11 seasonal wins in 20 starts and has earned $223,667 during his career.

The Cash Hall gelding is owned by Tammy Carter, Jay Mossbarger, Cass Gallagher and Breana Carsey and is trained by Steve Carter.
