Indiana Sired Fair Circuit (ISFC) competitors will line up behind the gate Wednesday, June 12 for the second round of racing at the Converse Fairgrounds. A total of 21 races are slated for the afternoon racing program that begins at 4PM.
Once again, two-year-old pacers will be in the spotlight, taking up the first 15 races on the card before three-year-old trotters take the stage. Several of last week’s winners are included on the card, including two winners slated for the eighth race.
Two sons of Time to Roll, Rollinwithdesire and Northern Cadilac, will go to battle in the sixth and final division for two-year-old colt and gelding pacers. Rollinwithdesire won his division in 2:01.2 for driver Travis Seekman while Northern Cadilac was a winner for Rocky Loney in 2:05.3. In all, there are five horses in the race, four of which are sired by Time to Roll.
Another matchup comes in Race 5 between Fishyriggins and Townline Flight. Both were winners last week, with Fishyriggins winning in 2:01.4 while Townline Flight completed his mile in 2:07.4. Loney drive Fishyriggins while Matt Rheinheimer drives Townline Flight.
