Ohio’s best 3-year-old colts and geldings take to the track in a trio of $40,000 Ohio Sires Stakes event on Saturday night at Miami Valley Raceway. They are carded as the sixth, eighth, and 10th races on the program.

Friskie Adam comes into his split of the OSS 3-year-old colt pace unbeaten in a pair of 2014 starts,including a 1:53.2f score for trainer Dan Ater.  Ater’s son Kyle will be in the bike behind the fast son of Feelin Friskie and he starts from post three.

Leaving inside Friskie Adam is Big Bossman, steered by Greg Grismore for trainer Doug Hinklin.

In the other sophomore pacing divison the likely favorite’s role falls to Dibs, who will have the driving services of champion reinsman Dave Palone. Dibs was a powerful presence on the Ohio racing season last year as a freshman and promises to take up the same role again this season.

Taking aim at Dibs from post five is Upfront Clays Boy, trained by Jim Arledge, Jr. and driven by Dan Noble.

In the lone $40,000 Ohio Sire Stakes for sophomore trotters, a trio of talented 2-year-olds from the 2013 season look to control much of the race. Noah Count, Hooray For Willie, and Soul Train are expected to provide a lot of action.
