McAllister kennel’s Flying Marvelous (Kiowa Sweet Trey x Flying Midnite) headed the back half of the Derby finalists. The sensational starter compiled her sixth win in just eight career starts. Dancin Rainman (Nova), USS Gazillionair (Raines) and Galway (D’Arcy) finalized the Derby field. Marvelous clocked a 37.43 to win in her box to wire win. Strike Out King (Charter), Magic Finch (Abernathy), Kiowa JSK Gustaf (Patriot) and Chugalugger (Magic City-Mighty Fine) will be featured in the Consolation Derby.
Post positions will be key in the two stakes. The races and posts will be drawn Thursday night and posted on Vera’s News on the Derby Lane home page.
Other news: Wednesday night’s (June 22) eleventh race was as powerful as a stakes race final. J. E. O’Donnell kennel’s TMC’s Pistol (Dodgem By Design x TMC’s Contessa) came out with guns loaded to halt the win streak of Backwood Shyster (Campbell) and score the top grade victory over the win leader Flyin Carnoustie (McAllister) and Capabal kennel’s Aerial Battle. Pistol also kept Sovereign Gold (D’Arcy) and Jack’s Non Stop (Holland) from scoring repeat wins.
