The fastest miles on Wednesday’s day for freshmen were in 2:07.1, record, unusually, by a trotting filly, and semi-unusually, by a pacing colt in the “B” division of the Pennsylvania Fair Sire Stakes. Stepping into the spotlight were the Cantab Hall – Celebrity Sweedie miss Shayna Rosa, now 2-for-3 on the fair circuit for trainer/driver Bill Daugherty Jr. and owner Susan Daugherty, and the Sweet Lou – Wide Open colt Wound Tight for his evergreen owner/trainer/driver Roger Hammer.
Two other 2020 Fair Championship winners succeeded at Hughesville: the Bar Hopping ridgling Top Me Off, home in 2:05.2 for trainer/driver Todd Schadel and co-owned by him, his wife Christine, and Rick and Regina Beinhauer; and the Artspeak colt Terry A Hanover, again for Todd Schadel, in 2:04, with Christine owning this one in partnership with Caitlin Solt.
It was Todd’s brother Tony who garnered the driving honors for the two-day meet with six visits to Victory Lane; five of Tony’s six were trained by wife Linda, which tied her atop the conditioners ladder with Bob Rougeaux III and Mitchell York.
Next on the fair circuit is a trip to Bedford PA , with the draw on Tuesday for Thursday and Friday racing at 3:00 p.m.
