|Representatives from the 10 charities join Standing Danette and Tony Hall in the winner's circle|
When it was all said and done Standing Danette and Tony Hall crossed the line first for the Arthritis Foundation of Central Ohio, in 1:54. The win earned the Foundation a $5,000 donation -- and bragging rights as the winner.
“We would like to thank the OHHA and Standing Danette for her wonderful $5,000 donation to the Arthritis Foundation,” Susan Davis, regional vice president of the Foundation, said. “The OHHA has been awesome this evening, and Scioto Downs was great; they were very helpful and supportive of us. The food was wonderful and it’s been an amazing evening. We at the Arthritis Foundation are just very excited and proud to be here at the inaugural event.”
Finishing second was Grace Seelster (Greg Grismore) who was partnered with the National Parkinson’s Foundation and earned $2,500 for the charity. Kay Low (Jeremy Smith) and R E O Speeddragon (Kayne Kauffman) finished third and fourth, respectively, to earn $1,200 for ALS Association and $800 for 4-H Youth Development. The charities whose horses finished 5-10 got $500.
Scioto also donated $500 per charity, so no one left the track with less than $1,000.
Live racing will resume on Friday and Saturday, both night at 6:30 p.m., ET.
