Two $50,000 Ohio Sires Stakes for 3-year-old harness racing trotting fillies set to be held on Friday, Aug. 14 at Scioto Downs, will determine the field for the $300,000 Championships, set to be held at this same five-eighths mile venue on Sept. 5.

This fourth leg of the series features 15 diagonally gaited distaffs, including three each sired by Triumphant Caviar and Uncle Peter, with two each being sired by Break The Bank K, Cash Hall and Manofmanymissions. As well, Ohio stallions represented by one foal each in these contests include Coraggioso, My MVP and Team Six.

The undefeated Guinevere Hall looks to keep her unblemished 2020 record intact in the first OSS division (Race 3), leaving from post six for driver Peter Wrenn and trainer Melanie Wrenn. This daughter of Cash Hall is owned by the MT Pockets Stables of Pompano Beach, FL and David McDufee of Delray Beach, FL. A winner of $134,181 in 2019, the bay filly has added $95,900 additional dollars to her coffers this season, including triumphs in all three previous OSS legs. Bred by Alan J. Leavitt of Kentucky, Guinevere Hall is the seventh foal out of the unraced Lindy Lane mare Garbo Hall and has a half-brother in the Conway Hall gelding Godspell Hall 1:55.4 ($38,301).

Kikimora, a winner of two previous OSS legs earlier this season, will leave from post one in this same division with Aaron Merriman at the helm for trainer Chris Beaver, who co-owns the daughter of Triumphant Caviar in partnership with breeder Sandra Burnett of Wilmington, Ohio. This speedy bay filly has career earnings of $257,516 lifetime, with $47,320 of those monies collected this season. Kikimora is the fourth foal out of the Chip Chip Hooray mare Nessa Rose 3, 1:57.1s ($38,829) with half-siblings in Evanora (by Pilgrims Taj) 3, 1:56.3h ($115,348); Ilianora (by Broadway Hall) 3, 1:56.2f ($56,522); and Theodora (by Stormin Normand) 2, 2:01.2h ($16,700).

Thestable's Globetrotting's heads up the second OSS division (Race 8) from post eight for driver Anthony Macdonald and trainer Jason McGinnis. This Manofmanymissions lass has $193,207 in career earnings and captured her OSS Leg One in 1:55.1, before finishing a rough fifth in Leg Two and a solid fourth in Leg Three. Bred by Steiner Stock Farm, Globetrotting is the fifth and most prolific foal out of the Andover Hall mare Celebrity Deville 3, 1:54.3s ($338,744). She is a half-sister to Lima Cadillac (by Yankee Glide) 3, Q1:54.4f ($93,210); Lima Charisma (by Muscle Hill) 3, 1:55.1f ($75,960); and Iwantmytwodollars (by Muscle Hill) 4, 1:57.1h ($47,456), among others.

The other previous OSS leg winner in this same division is A Fancy Face, who starts from post five with Chris Page at the controls for trainer Ronnie Burke. This My MVP lass captured OSS Leg Three in 1:54.2 for owners Burke Racing Stable, Hatfield Stables, J&T Silva-Purnel&Libby and Weaver Bruscemi. Bred by Spring Haven Farm, A Fancy Face is the first foal out of the unraced Muscle Massive mare Alliomi, and is a half-sister to the Ohio Sires Stakes winning 2-year-old filly A Doll Face (by Dontyouforgetit) 2, 1:59.4h ($33,704).
