Tiny Tiara held position for second to round out the exacta.   The second split of trotting fillies saw Mary's A Keeper leave sharply off the wings for reignsman John Wagner and lead throughout the 2.04.2 mile while holding off the late surging favorite Sleek N Majestic for driver Arthur Stafford Jr. . Mary's A Keeper is a homebred for owners John Wagner and Syl King Jr.   Maryland Sire Stakes will continue back on Sunday, August 19th and Monday, August 20th with the second legs of preliminaries.   by Jeff Billings for the MSRF

Berlin, MD - A new season, same result as Hyway Marcus continues his win streak in RUS racing with a win in the opening leg of the RUS MidAtlantic Trotting Series at Ocean Downs. Owner/trainer Sasha Moczulski rode the seven year old trotter to a comfortable 2:04.2 victory over his opposition, reduced by one due to an injury to One True Friend, necessitating a late scratch. While the result may have been the same, there was a moment of concern. Traverse Seelster, ridden by Ashley Eldred, left fastest of all, with Hyway Marcus challenging for the lead. On the first turn, Hyway Marcus went wide, racing in the middle of the track. This error allowed Flowing James (Vanessa Karlewicz) to come out of the first turn in second with Hyway Marcus finding himself third and last in the field. Once straightened out, Hyway Marcus launched his attack but it was Traverse Seelster which led the trio to the first quarter in :29.2. After the first quarter, Moczulski took the lead, never to relinquish the front for the rest of the race. At the half, Hyway Marcus led Traverse Seelster by 2 lengths in :59.2, then opening up a five length lead at the three quarter mark in 1:30.2. At this point, the winner finished the race on cruise control winning with a :34 final quarter to stop the teletimer in 2:04.2, six lengths ahead of Traverse Seelster who was second with Flowing James third, two lengths further back. In addition to the race, the Post Time Show, was at Ocean Downs to cover the race and interviewed RUS MidAtlantic President Stephanie Jacobs and Vice-President Maria Buchanan who were on hand lend their support to the race. The RUS MidAtlantic series takes a break, returning on Sunday, September 16 at Rosecroft. From the RUS MidAtlantic Chapter

(Berlin, MD) - Hyway Marcus leads a quartet of harness racing trotters in the $4,000 season opener of RUS MidAtlantic's 2018 Trotting Series at Ocean Downs on Sunday, July 15, one of several events taking place as part of Ocean Down's celebration of National I Love Horses Day. This will be the fifth year RUS (Riding Under Saddle) makes a stop at the resort track and has been well-received by race fans. Marcus, the 7 year old son of Gut Instinct has found a second life under saddle, sweeping the RUS MidAtlantic series last year, ridden by owner/trainer Sasha Moczulski who will be in the saddle Sunday. Last year the RUS specialist took the Ocean Downs leg in 2:02.1 and draws post four for this year's edition. Were this to be a wagering race, there's no doubt Hyway Marcus would be the overwhelming favorite, but the race needs to be run before the purse money is paid out as the possibility of an upset exists. Rider Hillary Harnett hopes to avenge One True Friend's defeat to Hyway Marcus last year at Rosecroft. The 11 year old mare by Dream Vacation is co-owned by Harnett and trainer Wesley Miller and is making her second purse start of the season, going off-stride at Historic Track on July 1. If the mare stays on-stride she will be a factor in this race. One True Friend drew post position 2 in Sunday's race. Starting from the rail, 10 year old Traverse Seelster (pp 1) comes into the race after a win last year in the Miller Memorial at Monticello Raceway, his only purse start in RUS events thus far. His last start on July 8, was in sulky at Saratoga Raceway where he finished third timed in 1:57.4 in a mid-level conditioned race. If he can flash some of his speed under saddle, Traverse Seelster may be a threat at the wire. Owner/Trainer Ashley Eldred rides the altered son of Angus Hall. Flowing James (pp 3) is well prepped for this race, competing at Historic track racing in three matinee races and one purse start where he finished second to Armbro Hall. The 13 year old gelding by Ilooklikemymother completed his preparations for the RUS MidAtlantic race with a victory at the fair track in Afton, New York. The last time Traverse Seelster raced at Ocean Downs was in 2015 when he finished second to Hyway Marcus. Flowing James is being ridden by his lessee/trainer Vanessa Karlewicz. Previous winners of RUS races at Ocean Downs are: 2014 - Truth In Action, ridden by Karen Isbell; 2015 - Hyway Marcus, Maria Buchanan; 2016 - Mr Protab, Stephanie Jacobs; 2017 - Hyway Marcus, Sasha Moczulski. Should Hyway Marcus be victorious, it will be a hat-trick in RUS racing at Ocean Downs. The non-wagering RUS event is scheduled for 8:55 PM, immediately after the sixth race on the wagering card. First race on Sunday is scheduled for 7:05 PM. There will be a meet and greet before and after the race. From the RUS MidAtlantic Chapter
