Dans Credit and Jordan Ross cashed in during the $17,500 Indiana Sires Stakes eligible event for three-year-old colt and gelding trotters Saturday, Nov. 5 at Harrah’s Hoosier Park. The duo covered the one-mile distance in a time of 1:54.3, shaving a fifth of a second off his career best time.
Dans Credit had the rail in the event, but early speed isn’t his strong suit. Skyway Professor and LeWayne Miller shot out from the inside for the lead while Epic Dreamer and Rick Plano pursued the top spot from the outside, setting the first fraction of :27.4. Epic Dreamer was still leading at the half in :57.0, but Scorecard Dan and John DeLong had taken over by the three-quarters in 1:25.2. The move to the outside prompted a second flow of traffic that included Dans Credit.
In the stretch, Dans Credit got the room he needed and advanced, trotting home in :28.1 for the win, his sixth of the season. Scorecard Dan finished second while Land of Freedom and Trace Tetrick finished third to make it a Dover Dan trifecta.
Dans Credit paid $7.40 for the win. The Dover Dan gelding is owned by Bobby Reeser, Robin Renner and Henry Yoder. Reeser handles the training duties of the gelding bred by Martin Hilty. It was his third straight win and fourth in his last five starts. He increased his career bankroll to more than $40,000 with the win.
Another winner on the Saturday card was Majors Miracle in the $17,500 Indiana Sires Stakes eligible event for three-year-old pacing fillies. Ms Quick Sand and Brandon Bates set the first fraction at :27.3 before Majors Miracle and Michael Oosting moved to the top spot at the half in :55.1. From there, they were in complete control, pacing home in :28.3 for the win in 1:52.2. Ms Quick Sand finished one and three-quarter lengths back in second while Whimsical and Dan Shetler rounded out the trifecta.
Majors Miracle paid $6.60 for the win. The Luck Be Withyou filly is trained by Don Eash and owned by Eash Racing Stable Inc. Jonas Graber bred the filly, who won her fourth race of 2022 and her fifth overall. She moved her career bankroll to more than $85,000 with the win. Her career best time remains at 1:51.2 taken earlier this year at Harrah’s Hoosier Park.
