The Larry King Stable has been winning their fair share of races this summer on the Indiana Sired Fair Circuit (ISJFC). The Stable took it to the next level Saturday at Kendallville with five wins on the racing program.
The day started off for the King Stable with a win from Velstraightdreamer in the first division of the two-year-old filly pace. Guided by Kevin Lambright, the Straight Shooting filly sat patiently in the two-hole as stablemate Vel Liveinfastlane and Alex Udell set the first half fractions of :32.2 and 1:05.1. Velstraightdreamer took over the second half and rallied away from the field for the win in 2:08.3 by four and one-quarter lengths. Rockstars Dynamite and Doug Rideout finished second with Rockin Q and Tyler Miller recovering from a break after the start to finish third.
Velstraightdreamer is owned by King Racing Stable and Charlie K Racing, who also bred the filly. She remains undefeated in six starts this year with her quickest time of 2:01.0 taken at Converse in mid June.
Joining Velstraightdreamer as a winner in the freshman pacing filly division was Vel Sally. Also a daughter of Straight Shooting, Lambright placed Vel Sally on the front end from the start, and never looked back, striding to a four and one-quarter length win in 2:11.1. Starlit Rigginroll and Tyler Miller finished second over Vel Ya Want To and Clay Craib for third.
King Racing Stable owns Vel Sally, who was bred by Alvin Schwartz. The filly is now four for six this season with her best time of 2:03.1 taken at Frankfort. She is from the nearly 100 percent producing broodmare McKenna Benz, the dam of McStraight, who took a mark of 1:50.4 and earned more than $250,000.
Other King trained winners on the day included Vel Wemiss U Dean, who was driven by Clay Craib in a time of 2:08.4 among two-year-old colt and gelding pacers, Vel Bitter Chip, driven by Lambright, with a win in freshman colt and gelding pacing action in 2:08.0, and Vel Keep Rolling, in the three-year-old filly pace for driver Lambright, and
