Carbine scores again, doing double duty this spring

Columbus, OH — Carbine made it two in a row Thursday (Feb. 29) at Miami Valley Raceway when he took the Open handicap in 1:50 from the assigned nine hole. Parked to the :27.1 opening quarter, the 6-year-old son of Somebeachsomewhere led at each next call to win by 3-1/4 lengths. Trace Tetrick drove the winner for trainer Virgil Morgan, Jr. and owner Odds On Racing.

Carbine followed up a national season’s mark last week, with another impressive victory. Brad Conrad Photo.

Carbine has now won four of seven starts on the season with earnings of $60,975. Lifetime he has hit the board 42 of his 70 starts with earnings of $368,299. Just last week, on February 22, Carbine set a national season’s record, winning handily in 1:49. This last mile marked his 24th sub-1:50 mile in his career.

“He is getting scary good right now – that 1:49 flat mile on the 5/8 was with mud fenders and a track variant of -1,” said trainer Virgil Morgan, Jr. who took over training duties in January.

Out of the mare Shot ToGo Bluechip, Carbine is a half-brother to both Heston Blue Chip and Sunfire Blue Chip. Precedent set to being the dam of sires, Carbine has joined his brothers by entering the stallion ranks, performing double duty by racing and standing stud at Midland Acres.

“He’s a gorgeous looking animal with amazing pedigree to back his look up,” continued Morgan. “I look forward to seeing his offspring race in Ohio.”

From one of the last crops of the great sire Somebeachsomewhere, Carbine’s 2024 stud fee is $2,500. Inquiries can be made to Dr. J. Stallion Management at 717.578.7395 or
