Alexa Skye dominance continues at Miami Valley

Lebanon, OH — Although it wasn’t as easy, Alexa Skye did it again. The 6-year-old daughter of Somebeachsomewhere continued her domination of the Miami Valley Mares Open Pace on Thursday (March 23) with her fourth straight victory.

Driver Trace Tetrick took no prisoners as Alexa Skye seems to like leaving the gate as much as needed and then settling in to a futile game of “catch me if you can” for her foes. On this occasion, Wildcat Victoria (Dan Noble) gave her all she wanted as they sped down the homestretch, but fell a neck short in 1:51. Velocity Lady (Brady Galliers), Trick Of The Light (Chris Page) and Lee Loo (Brett Miller) also had closing kick, but Alexa Skye would not be denied.

Virgil Morgan Jr. trains the winner for the Let It Ride Stable and Bottom Line Racing. In 2023 alone, she has a scorecard that reads nine starts with five wins, two place and two show finishes, good for earnings of $90,000.

Southwest Ohio’s other top mares who have been chasing Alexa Skye for over a month will get a respite next week as the winner has agreed to take a week or two off, or move to another venue.

Miami Valley is dark on Fridays and Saturdays, but will resume its normal Sunday-through-Thursday schedule on March 26. Post time is always 4 p.m.
