Veteran Ohio-bred harness racing pacers and trotters of both genders proved fast and furious on a chilly October 16 evening at Dayton Raceway, sparing in a quartet of $85,000 Ohio Sires Stakes Championships.

Weslynn Quest (5-1) held off 1-9 stablemate Pure Chance in the Mares Trot Championship, clocked in 1:54. Danny Noble drove the 4-year-old Manofmanymissions mare for trainer Chris Beaver and owner Derek Ivany of Toronto, Canada. Longshot (35-1) Heidi's Heart was third for Josh Sutton. The victory, the 11th of her career in 32 starts, pushed Weslynn Quest's career earnings to $245,341.

 

Talkaboutaqueen (5-2) used a bold move at the half to take command and never look back in the Mares Pace Championship for driver Brett Miller. The 5-year-old mare by Oaks Enforcer is trained by Jayme Laing for Rod Allums, Jr., and now has $165,203 in her career coffers. Checks On The Way (5-2) was second for Aaron Merriman, while 1-1 Big Bad Jane was third for Danny Noble. The winner was timed in a career-equalling 1:50.4 for her effort.

Pass The Vape, the 2-1 choice, used a near wire-to-wire journey to take the Veteran Trot in 1:54 for driver Dan Noble and trainer Derek Watiker. The 5-year-old altered son of Dejarmbro upped his lifetime bankroll to $432,459 for owner Lionel Ray Watiker of Zanesville, Ohio as he made his 23rd trip into the winner's circle. Lane Of Stone (9-5) was second, a length and a half back for Jeff Nisonger, while 2-1 Jailhouse Sam was third for Sandy Beatty.

Sectionline Bigry, the 1-1 favorite, held off his eight rivals with a commanding 1:50.1 performance in the Veteran Pace for driver Tyler Smith and trainer Steve Bauder. Owned by Harold Lee Bauder of Delaware, Ohio, the 5-year-old Pet Rock homebred collected career win 27 and now has $565,227 in lifetime earnings. Tivo Hanover (16-1) was second for Kayne Kauffman, while 2-1 Gold Digger King was third for Brett Miller.

Ohio Sires Stakes action wraps up the 2020 season with consolations for 2- and 3-year-old trotters and pacers of both genders tomorrow night (Oct. 17) at Northfield Park, with a first race post time of 6 pm.
