Columbus, OH --- Despite a threatening night of thunder, lightning, high winds and showers, owner Bruce Trogdon couldn’t have been happier Saturday (June 9), when Cinnamack and Bounding Dragon finished first and second in the first of two $50,000 Ohio Sires Stakes for 3-year-old pacing colts at Scioto Downs.

Cinnamack collects his fourth victory from five starts this year.

“I was so happy to see both of them leading down the stretch,” noted Trogdon. “Of course I was hoping my horse (Cinnamack) would get up for the win, but I was just so happy for both of them, as they are both out of two of my best mares.”

Bounding Dragon led throughout most of the mile for Josh Sutton, but in the late stretch Chris Page steered Cinnamack up the inside to nail down his fourth victory in five starts this year in 1:50.4 by a head over his rival—equaling his lifetime best score.

The bay son by McArdle is out of the unraced Western Ideal mare Armbro Cinnamon, making him a half-brother to world champion Fear The Dragon p,3, 1:48.4s ($1,578,547). To date he’s earned $95,600 for Trogdon’s Emerald Highlands Farm.

Conditioned by Brian Brown, Cinnamack left the gate at odds of 2-1, as did rival Bounding Dragon. Sectionline Biguy (6-1) notched show honors with Tyler Smith at the lines.

“I also have a super-looking yearling who is a full brother to Fear The Dragon,” Trogdon offered. That youngster’s name is Dragon Roars Again.

Cinnamack is the sixth of seven foals out of his dam, and has a full brother in McSinner Man p, 4, 1:52.3s ($54,466), and half-siblings in Cinamony (by Art Officials) p, 4, 1:49.3f ($532,404) and Cndiana Jones p, 7, 1:53.1f ($115,599).

In the second $50,000 Ohio Sires Stakes for sophomore side-wheelers, Kimberly Dailey harnessed 9-5 Rockathon to a 1:51.1 victory with Dan Noble at the lines. The altered son by Pet Rock, who is owned in partnership by Dailey and Carl and Melanie Atley, picked up his sixth lifetime win in 16 starts, upping his lifetime bankroll to $186,012.

Rockathon wrestled the lead away from 21-1 longshot Parklane Official just past the :27.2 opening panel, and went on to lead at every post, before brushing home in a brisk :27.4 to win by a 1-1/4 lengths over the hard-trying 1-2 Slick Mick (Ronnie Wrenn, Jr.), with 9-1 JoJo’s Pet Rock (Simon Allard) another seven lengths back in third.

Rockathon is the seventh foal out of The Panderosa dam Pantathlon p, 2, 1:54.4F ($20,221) and is a half-brother to: Pan From Nantucket (by No Pan Intended) p,5, 1:51.3h ($570,801); Rosemary Rose (by Foreclosure N) p,4,1:51f ($293,382); Panstakingly (by No Pan Intended) p, 3, 1:54.2s ($64,490); Nip Pan Tuck (by No Pan Intended) p,2,1:54.4s ($50,899); and Holiday Romance p,3, 1:56.2f ($39,289).

Ohio Sires Stakes action continues Monday evening, (June 11) at Northfield Park, when 3-year-old trotting fillies line up behind the starting gate in Leg 2 action.
