Delaware, OH — Tilly Bomb (Ray Paver), Beehomeontime (Jim Dailey) and High Class Broad (Richard Stillings) won divisions of the $76,800 Ohio Breeders Championship 2-year-old filly trot. And all three juvenile fillies scored impressive, open length victories in gate-to-wire fashion.

Tilly Bomb, a Chip Chip Hooray filly owned by Slaughter Racing Stable, Alex Rohrer and Jeremy Nalli, equaled the track record of 1:59.3 set in 2005 by I Like Stephanie. The time was also a national season’s record. Tilly Bomb, trained by Tom Davis, defeated E Pegasus by 4-3/4 lengths with Up Front Janet third.

Behomeontime was on top by eight lengths and coasted home by 3-1/2 lengths in 2:01.2 to defeat Shinin Pearl and Pat Pat Hooray in the second division. The winner, by Big Victory, is owned by James Mullinix and John Willis and trained by Jim Mullinix.

Third division winner High Class Broad opened up a big lead coming off the final turn to win by 2-1/2 lengths over Belle Lavec and BJ’s The Bomb in 2:01.1. The Pegasus Spur filly is owned by Richard Gillock and Chris Chambers and trained by Jim Arledge, Jr.
