COLUMBUS, OH --- The good news for Ohio racing fans is that Rompaway Galaxy is starting off 2014 just like he finished last season. But that's bad news for the connections of other 3-year-old male trotters in the Buckeye State. He promises to be a heavy favorite in his Ohio Sires Stakes at Scioto this afternoon. Each of the four OSS events go for a $40,000 purse. Last year Rompaway Galaxy dominated the Ohio Sire Stakes, winning all four legs and the final. His only loss of the season came in an Ohio Breeders Stake at Scioto when he got trapped behind a tiring leader and was beaten by a head by Soul Train. Otherwise he was perfect in his eight starts and he wrapped up his season by winning the $150,000 Ohio Sires Stakes final with a 1:57.4 mile, his personal best. An indication of how impressive Rompaway Galaxy has been is that he's been made the odds-on favorite every time after his first career start. This year Rompaway Galaxy signaled his readiness with an impressive win in the $40,000 Ohio Sires Stakes opening leg at Miami Valley Racing. In that event, he was parked from post nine for a long way before clearing to the front and making a mockery of his pursuers with his 1:58 win. His margin was 6-1/2 lengths. Rompaway Galaxy heads the 11th race on the 15-race holiday card at Scioto. He starts from post two with rival Soul Train in post 10 in the second tier. Rompaway Galaxy is owned by Rompaway Farms of Michigan and is trained by Krista Harmon. Mike Micallef handles the reins. He is a son of Rompaway Wally. Harmon said that gelding the youngster as a 2-year-old helped him focus on his business. That decision and his abundant natural made him into a champion. Micallef noted that the trotter is bigger this season and yet still has the speed and ability that gave him dominance over his rivals last season. The other division for Ohio-sired trotting sophomore males is headed by Can'tcutthatchip, a winner three times in five starts this season with a best time of 1:57.4. He is a slight favorite over nine rivals. There are two pacing splits for Ohio-sired sophomore pacers. Friskie Adam is seeking to make it five straight wins this season for trainer Dan Ater and his son Kyle, who will handle the driving chores. He's already won in 1:53.2f this year and his rivals will be hard-pressed to match strides with the son of Feelin Friskie. The other pacing division features Big Bossman, a winner in 1:55.3f this season in a trio of starts. Greg Grismore drives for trainer Doug Hinklin. Post time at Scioto for the Memorial Day program is 1 p.m.The other Ohio Sires Stakes for soph trotting males features a well-balanced field of 10 with Can'tcutthatchip the narrow favorite in the morning line on the basis of three wins in five starts this season, the fastest in 1:57.4. Friskie Adam, unbeaten in four starts in 2014, is a heavy favorite to defeat six challengers in his Ohio Sires Stakes pacing event. Kyle Ater will be steering him for his father, trainer Dan Ater. The son of Feelin Friskie sports a 1:53.2f mark this season. Big Bossman gets the favorite's role in the other pacing split as Greg Grismore will drive him for trainer Doug Hinklin.

The hottest horse in all of North American harness racing is the undefeated three-year-old National Debt - and his sire, Allamerican Native, is standing his first season in Ohio at Hagemeyer Farms, in the southwest quadrant of the Buckeye State. Allamerican Native, after starting his stud career in Pennsylvania and then standing the last three years in Ontario, was brought to the well-known Hagemeyer Farms as the racing fortunes are improving in Ohio and the four-generation family-owned operation looked to expand their "footprint" in the state. Having the sire of such an exciting prospect standing at your farm for $2500 is as about a good first step for the Hagemeyer expansion as can be imagined. (To see and learn more about all five of the Hagemeyer stallions - the "Native," World Of Rocknroll, Canyon Wind, Home Stretch, and Rompaway Wally -- go to the farm website at, logically, www.hagemeyerfarms.com.) People looking to breed their mares to Hagemeyer stallions, especially if leaving the mares in care of the farm for gestation and foaling, "will get a personalized degree of service that we think is our strongest selling point," notes Scott Hagemeyer, the farm manager. (Scott, by the way, is part of the "third generation of Hagemeyers": his grandparents Maynard and Stella are living legends in that part of the world; father Mel started selling programs at Lebanon Raceway in 1968, and, 45 years later, retired as the track's general manager as Lebanon now gives way to two new tracks in the area; and daughter Lyndsay is a key worker around the farm.) "If someone calls out of the blue and says, 'What can you offer to my horse?', I answer them honestly and say, 'I'm not sure; I'll have to learn more about your horse'," Scott Hagemeyer states. "Every horse is treated as an individual first; we figure out exactly just what care brings out the most potential in them. Most of our stock during breeding season is broodmares, mostly bred to our farm stallions, and with that combination we have a conception rate of 90% to 95%." Scott expects some 150 mares to be bred to his farm's stallions (well, that estimate was before National Debt's victory on Saturday), and last year the peak equine population was 188. That's a far cry from a few years ago, one of the lower points in Ohio racing, where the farm had about 90 horses at most, including an influx of horses from other breeds, and the farm's two stallions serviced a total of 12 mares. "All thanks to the reconfiguring and revitalizing of Ohio racing," Hagemeyer notes, perhaps playing down a little the excellent care provided by the farm and him personally - "I treat all of our horses as if I owned them myself." Offspring of mares bred to farm stallions are of course eligible to be in the much-enrichened Ohio Sire Stakes, and if the in-process breeders awards program requires mare residency, Hagemeyer Farms is again in good position. While for the most part a breeding operation, there is a half-mile training track on the farm, and the population does include a few racehorses. "We've had some inquiries from some horsemen who both breed and race, since currently there is a bit of a shortage of stalls with the new tracks. That's a situation we'll have to be looking at." Besides his own illustrious family, there is another name indelibly linked to southwest Ohio and harness racing, and Scott noted that "I think Corwin Nixon would be ecstatic beyond words at the new situation here - Lebanon going over to the Miami Valley people, and the entire resurgence of the sport." Inquiries to Scott Hagemeyer can be directed through the farm website, or to 513 304 9263 - but be prepared for a possible busy signal if phoning, because National Debt may be making Allamerican Native's spring a little busier - and thus happier, of course.

Eight $150,000 Ohio Sire Stakes championships were held at Scioto Downs Racino Saturday evening.  Feelin Lika Winner lived up to his name when he won the coveted 3-year-old colt pacing championship in 1:52.2. The Scott Mogan trainee sat in the pocket most of the way behind race favorite, That Friske Feelin and Tony Hall, after parking the latter to an opening quarter of 26.3. "We wanted to follow Burke’s horse (That Friske Feelin), as close as we could get to him,” said driver Kayne Kauffman.  “We got out of the gate good and I kind of pushed him through the first turn and tried to sting him a little bit.” That opening quarter didn’t take much out of the eventual winner as he powered home in 28.3 to win by four and three-quarter lengths. “That was a very tough call (to pull going around the last turn instead of waiting for the passing lane) but my horse felt strong,” continued Kauffman.  “Tony’s plugs were out down the backside so we went ahead and made the move and it worked out.” Feelin Lika Winner is owned by Mogan, Diamond Chip Stables (Judy Weber), AWS Stables (Allen & Carol Marie Schmidthorst) and Charlie Guiler.  The gelding by Feelin Friskie out of the Live Love Laugh mare Naughty Sunflower now has $212,235 in lifetime earnings and took a mark earlier this year of 1:51.4 here at Scioto. Other OSS winners on the evening included: 2yo Filly Trot - In the Grippers (Steven One - Over Baked) in 1:58 for driver Chris Page, trainer Virgil Morgan, Jr and owner Herres Stables LLC (Natilie Herres). 2yo Colt Trot - Rompaway Galaxy (Rompaway Wally - Rompaway Wynona) in 1:57.4 for driver Mike Micallef, trainer Krista Williams and owner Rompaway Farms LLC (Thomas Smith) 2yo Filly Pace - Shakin Friskie (Feelin Friskie - Shakeurcancancress) in 1:56.1 for driver Dan Noble, trainer Mark Winters, Sr and owners Bret Schwartz, William Bean and Stephen Montemarano. 2yo Colt Pace - Chance I MIght (Stand Forever - Nature’s Course) in 1:55.3 for driver Brad Hanners, trainer Jim Dailey and owner Rebecca Dwyer. 3yo Filly Trot - Contessa Leigh (Full Count - Howl) in 1:57.1 for driver Sam “Chip” Noble, trainer Marty Wollam and owners G And B Racing (Bradley & George Berlin) and Marty Wollam. 3yo Colt Trot - Final Breath (Victory Sam - First Breath) in 1:56.1 for trainer/driver Hugh “Sandy” Beatty and owner Duane Lowe. 3yo Filly Pace - Igottafeelinfran (Feelin Friskie - Fran Anna) in 1:53.3 for driver Dan Noble, trainer Jim Dailey and owners Jerry Zosel, Kathy Ratcliff and Kimberly Dailey.
