Ocean City, MD - Brothers Corey and Shaun Callahan teamed up to sweep the first round of Maryland Sire Stakes preliminaries for three year old harness racing filly trotters at Ocean Downs Monday.

Driver Corey Callahan sent Gaagaa Gone (Googoo Gaagaa) a filly he owns and bred, to the lead from post 5 to claim the new stakes record of 1:58.1 at Ocean Downs. Shawn Callahan trains the filly. Crystals Pistol (Cam's Rocket) was up for second.

In the second split Corey was content to put Boo Boo Baa Baa (Googoo Gaagaa) in the pocket, charging past the leader TV Sensation (T V Show Kosmos) to win by a nose in 2:02. Shaun trains this filly for their mom Dolly's Breakaway Racing, their dad Nick Callahan was the breeder.

The first division for three year old pacing colt and geldings, was reduced to three horses due to a late scratch. Lloyd's All In (Rusty's All In) with Jared Moyer in the bike took control at the ¾ pole opening up 4¾ lengths to stop the clock in 1:55.2 for owner-breeder Pamela Wagner and trainer Arlene Cameron. Toms Tyrannosaurus (Cam's Rocket) took the place position.

The Pamela Wagner - Arlene Cameron combination was unstoppable in the colt and gelding paces also taking the second division with Ronnies Rocket (Cam's Rocket). Reinsman John Wagner waited patiently following the leader BT's Breeze (Nuclear Breeze) till the head of the stretch where he ducked into the passing lane, catching the leader by a neck. Time for the mile was 1:56.3.

The action continues Sunday July 1 and Monday July 2 with the second round of prelims at Ocean Downs.
