Grove City, Ohio - Street Gossip was a model of consistency in 2020, hitting the board in all eight of his starts earning him 2020 harness racing Ohio 2-Year-Old Trotting Colt of the Year honors.

Street Gossip, the son of Cash Hall out of the Yankee Glide mare The Young Princess won four out of his eight races and collected a pair of second- and third-place finishes for trainer Virgil Morgan Jr. and owner Carl Howard and the Jesmeral Stables, earning $171,761.

Street Gossip was purchased in July by Howard and Jesmeral Stable after a third-place finish in a leg of the Ohio Sires Stakes. "I saw him racing in his first sire stakes race at Northfield Park. He was very competitive," Morgan said. "I was elated once we got him. To see how good gaited he was and that we really had something to work with."

Morgan credits the horse's consistency as the reason he was named the 2-Year-Old trotting colt of the year. "He was a model of consistency. His body of work throughout the year was the difference. He was ultra-consistent."

Street Gossip will be honored during the Ohio Harness Horsemen's Association's virtual award show on January 16, 2021. The awards show is scheduled to air on the OHHA YouTube channel at 7:00 PM.
