Second Series county fair racing coming to Corydon
The fall season of county fairgrounds harness racing in Indiana has just a few more stops before a championship day in October finishes off this type of racing for 2022.
The county fair colts and fillies, trotters and pacers, will be in Corydon on Saturday. The first post is slated for 11 a.m. Fourteen heats are expected to race.
Last Saturday, the races were at the other end of Indiana, where the Elkhart County fairgrounds in Goshen is almost exactly the same distance from Michigan that Corydon is from Kentucky.
Carson Conrad drove his 2-year-old pacing filly Momma’s the Queen in Goshen but could only finish seventh. Driving for trainer and owner Carrie Holloman of Milan, the young Conrad finished sixth with the 2-year-old trotting filly Indiancreekcountry and second with the 2-year-old trotting colt Haven Lane Milan.
At The Red Mile in Lexington, Ky., last week, the Brock Stable picked up checks on both Monday and Tuesday. The star filly pacer Misdinosis Blugrass was third in her leg of the Kentucky Sire Stakes on Monday, a race worth $80,000. On Tuesday, the aged pacer Hayswood Ron from the Brock barn was second in his race in a time of 1:53:4, moving talk of his retirement to the back burner for now.
Other starters from the Brock Stable, the filly pacer Girl Giggles and the colt pacer Hesakobetoo, did not win money last week.
At Hoosier Park in Anderson, the Conrad Stable got a fifth-place check with the 3-year-old filly pacer Zig Zag Zoom on Tuesday and another fifth place with the aged pacer Seaside Hill on Wednesday. But the fireworks for the Conrad barn came on Thursday when Charlie Conrad drove the 2-year-old pacing colt Premier Rocker to first place in the final of a series for 2-year-old non-winners with $15,000 to be claimed.
