Im Offngone N on a roll at Miami Valley

Lebanon, OH — Im Offngone N won her second straight Mares Open at Miami Valley on Thursday (April 20), using a strong stretch brush to collar Single Girl and Trick Of The Light in 1:51.2.

Trevor Smith, despite driving the lukewarm favorite in the $36,000 race, was content to get away fifth with the daughter of Somebeachsomewhere through opening panels of :27 and :55.3. Single Girl (Tyler Smith) lead the charge to the quarter then relinquished the lead to Trick Of The Light, who tripped the halfway beam. Shortly after the half, however, Smith pulled to the outside and flushed cover in the form of Coral Reef Hanover (Brady Galliers). Second-over position proved to be the place to be as Im Offngone N sped home in :28 to wear down the pacesetters in deep stretch.

Mossy’s Dragon, Low Rider, Dunkin’, Wicked Character, Koa, BR Kruser and Stonecold Cruiser also qualified for the lucrative final.
