Northfield, OH — Amora Beach, a winner of his last nine races, will try to push his streak to double digits on Monday night (Feb. 11), at Northfield Park.
The 7-year-old gelded son of Somebeachsomewhere is the 5-2 second choice on the morning line from post three in the 13th race, a $13,000 Open 2 Pace.
Amora Beach started his winning ways against the $6,000 claiming ranks on December 9. He has been claimed seven times in his last 10 starts and has had seven different trainers during that stretch.
Current owners L’Emmur Stable, LLC of Hudson, OH and James Ryan of Warren, OH plucked him out of a $10,000 claimer when he tallied his seventh straight victory on January 21. Keith Kash, Jr. has trained and driven the streaking pacer to triumphs in the $15,000 and $20,000 claiming ranks in the past two weeks to make it nine in a row in O-HI-O. Monday night he will race in the Open ranks for the first time in his career.
Amora Beach did race in major stakes company as a two-year-old, finishing fourth in his elimination and eighth in the $613,640 Metro Final to Artspeak at Mohawk in 2014. He also finished third in a Pennsylvania Sires Stakes leg at Pocono in 2015.
