ER Skywalker and Morairtime represented the state of Indiana well Friday, Jan. 17 by each getting a win on the card. The two trotters scored victories in the second and fourth races on the card.
Kicking off the night was Morairtime, a four-year-old daughter of Airzoom Lindy. The trotting mare was parked every step of the mile before wearing down the competition in the stretch for the win in 1:53.3 by a nose. Driven by Jack Parker Jr., Morairtime is trained by Carol Jamieson-Parker. It was a new lifetime mark for the Indiana sired trotter, who is now two for three in 2020. She was bred by John Bontrager Jr. of Millersburg, Ind.
ER Skywalker also turned in a gritty performance in the $9,000 conditioned trot, enduring a mile in the outer flow the entire way. Driven and trained by Jordan Derue, the five-year-old Guccio gelding grinded his way to the front and trotted off with the win in 1:57.0, winning by three and one-half lengths. Bred and raised by Don and Rosie Eash of Greenfield,
ER Skywalker picked up his 11th career win and equaled his career best time, matching his winning best at Harrah’s Hoosier Park last year. ER Skywalker was part of the annual stable reduction by the Eash Stable last fall at the Blooded Horse Sale.
