Medoland Miracle wins again
The Associated Press
DELAWARE, Ohio Medoland Miracle completed her sweep of Ohio's Triple Crown on Monday with a lopsided win in the Ohio Breeders Championship for 2-year-old trotting fillies at the Delaware County Fairgrounds.
The Striking Sahbra filly beat nine rivals by 10 1/4 lengths in a division of the $81,056 championship. Despite starting from the second tier, Medoland Miracle shot into first by 12 lengths at the top of the stretch and coasted to her seventh win of the season over Strike Ten and Mystic Joann.
Earlier this year the Northmedo Stable filly had won the Ohio State Fair juvenile trot at Scioto Downs and last Saturday captured the $100,000 Ohio Sires Stakes Championship in 1:59 2-5, also at Scioto Downs. Jamie Dunlap drove for the Northmedo Stable of Painesville and trainer Mike Medors.
Lookoutmom, a half-sister to former Ohio horse of the year Ilooklikemymom, rushed past Striking Page in the final strides of the second division of the OBC juvenile filly trot. Striking Page had led until the final strides when Lookoutmom, driven by Ron Steck, put her neck in front at the wire in 2:01 4-5.
In the OBC feature for 2-year-old colt and gelding trotters, Message Machine closed steadily through the stretch to win the fastest of three divisions in a season's record of 2:00 3-5. Air Touch won his OBC division in 2:01 4-5 and End The Chase scored in 2:01 3-5.
