Rose Run Uriah has been a consistent performer in Indiana and Ohio the past three years. The four-year-old gelding just posted a new career best time Saturday, Nov. 28 at Hollywood Dayton in 1:51.0. He’s come a long way from the Hoosier Classic Yearling Sale in 2017 at Hip No. 1.
Starting from post one, Rose Run Uriah, driven by Jeremy Smith, slipped out from the starting gate behind American Dreamer and Trace Tetrick, tracking the favorites through the entire mile with fractions of :26.2, :54.2 and 1:22.1 before moving around and sealing the win in 1:51.0, a final quarter in :28.3. Bold and Brassy and Trevor Smith finished one and three-quarter lengths back in second followed by Venom, owned by Jack Freeman of Indiana and driven by Tyler Smith, in third to make it a Smith trifecta.
Now owned by Locust Grove Farm of Grabill, Ind., Rose Run Uriah paid $9.20 to win the conditioned pace for horses and geldings. The son of Jereme’s Jet was bred by Rose Run Farm of Sugarcreek, Ohio and was a $9,000 yearling purchase from the Hoosier Classic Yearling Sale. It was the third win of the year for Rose Run Uriah in 28 starts and he is now 13 for 67 in his career with more than $130,000 accumulated in purse earnings. Ken Rucker handles the training duties for the gelding.
