Odds on Osiris, the former Indiana champion campaigned by the Wrenn barn, is now on the East Coast continuing his racing career under the care of the Ron Burke Stable. He was an impressive winner in the $21,000 high level conditioned pace at Yonkers Raceway Tuesday, Nov. 1.
Odds on Osiris and George Brennan left the gate alertly but it was Genius Man and Tyler Buter who were in command, taking over the top spot through the first quarter in :26.1. Can B Perfect and Brent Holland pushed the pace and the two pulled away from the rest of the field heading to the half in :55.2. Odds on Osiris was sitting several lengths back in third to lead the second pack.
Heading to the three-quarters, Odds on Osiris pulled out and began to inch up on the leaders, passing by the marker in 1:23.2. Around the turn, the Indiana sired gelding only had one horse to chase down and that was Genius Man, who was still solid on the lead. It wasn’t until midway through the stretch that Odds on Osiris hit another gear and closed quickly on Genius Man to get the lead by a neck in the last step of the race, posting a time of 1:52.1. Ehrmantraut and Jordan Stratton finished third.
Odds on Osiris paid $10.20 for the win. The five-year-old son of Rockin Image is now owned by Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi and Philip Collura, all of Pennsylvania. Merlie Schwartz bred the gelding, who now has in excess of $700,000. His career mark remains at 1:49.3 taken as a three-year-old at Harrah’s Hoosier Park.
Odds on Osiris is the son of Antigua Hanover, who was the sale topper at the 2015 Blooded Horse Winter Mixed Sale with a price tag of $55,000. Schwartz purchased the mare by Somebeachsomewhere and took her to his farm in Peru, Ind. Her first foal, originally named Swiss Rocket, was Odds on Osiris, who brought $60,000 as a yearling. After competing on the Indiana Sires Stakes circuit with great success, the Wrenns took him to the Grand Circuit where he raced in events such as the North America Cup.
The yearling half-brother to Odds on Osiris this year was once again named Swiss Rocket by Schwartz and sold for $25,000 at the Hoosier Classic Yearling Sale. The JK Endofanera colt was purchased by Wrenn Racing of Carmel, Ind.
