The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


By Jay Wolf — World champion Herculisa heads a field of six three-year-old filly trotters in the $91,267 Ohio Breeders Championship in Monday action at the Delaware County Fair on September 20.

On September 5 in the $300,000 Ohio Sires Stake Final at MGM Northfield Park, Brett Miller guided the daughter of My MVP to a 3 ½ length win in 1:52 3/5, which established a new world record for sophomore filly trotters over a half-mile oval.

Herculisa, who will be leaving from post position #1, is trained by Virgil Morgan, Jr., is scheduled to be driven by Brett Miller and owned by Steve Finkelstein’s Jesmeral Stable of Scarsdale, NY. She has earned $356,862 lifetime and comes into the OBC with five wins in her last six starts.

Celebrate With Me (Chris Page), Swizzle Hanover and Designer Specs should be serious challengers to Herculisa.

Celebrate With Me (Post #6) has been first or second in nine of her ten seasonal starts. She has won $279,132 for Burke Racing Stable, BFJ Stable, Weaver Bruscemi and Knox Services.

Swizzle Hanover (Post #5) has been ultra-consistent this year, picking up purse checks in her last nine starts. She is co-owned by trainer Randy Bendis and Reed Broadway.

Designer Specs (Post #2) was a perfect 14-for-14 last season as a two-year-old and has picked up another eight wins this season. She is co-owned by Louise and Jay Weller, who trains.

The Monday undercard will feature four $17,500 divisions of the Buckeye Stallion Series for three-year-old colt pacers and a quartet of $17,500 divisions of the BSS for freshman filly pacers.

Free past performance pages for Monday’s races are available at The 16-race card will go postward at 3:00 PM
