ER Truevalue is still going strong in Ohio. The 10-year-old Indiana sired gelding earned his third win in the last month for his connections at Dayton Gaming.
Starting from post four, ER Truevalue and Tyler Smith got away in mid pack in the $10,000 claiming event Tuesday, Nov. 2 and sat patiently as Jamaican A Bundle and Cameron McCown set the first quarter at :27.0. Heading to the half ER Truevalue was flushed out by the outer flow behind him and was able to flush out cover of his own heading to the stretch.
In the stretch, ER Truevalue hit another gear and rallied home for the win by one and three-quarter lengths in 1:54.0. Antagonist and Tony Hall finished second over Naughty Maravu N and Kayne Kauffman for third.
ER Truevalue paid $10.80 for the win. He is trained by Alesha Binkley for MM & D Racing of Illinois. The Total Truth stocky gelding was bred and raised by Don and Rosie Eash. He now has five wins in 35 starts this year and 33 wins overall in 302 starts. His career best time was taken at Harrah’s Hoosier Park in 2019 at the age of eight in 1:52.2. He now has in excess of $274,000.
ER Truevalue has been in the claiming ranks the past few years. He was acquired by his current connections in August at Scioto Downs. Folling the first two starts in the Binkley barn, he has not missed a check in 10 starts and has now won three races for his new connections while stepping up from a $6,000 claimer when he was acquired to the $10,000 level.
ER Truevalue is one of seven foals from Goforthemoneyhoney, who earned a mark of 1:53.3 and $147,000 during her career. Of those seven foals, five have taken records and three have earnings in excess of $200,000, including ER Truevalue.
