LEBANON, OH – Big Bad Jane (Dan Noble) extended her win streak to three at Miami Valley on Friday (March 26) capturing the $20,000 Mares Open in 1:50.3. Although the seven-year-old daughter of Big Bad John in no stranger to the winner’s circle, with 32 victories in just 97 lifetime starts, this triumph was her first versus Open company since last Fall.
Noble rushed Big Bad Jane directly to the front before the quarter was reached in :26.4 and lead the field through subsequent fractions of :55 and 1:22. Checks On The Way (Brett Miller) enjoyed a cozy pocket trip throughout until mounting a serious challenge in the final strides, only to come up a neck short. Longshot Coral Reef Hanover (Brady Galliers) proved best of the rest while Pace Baby Pace (Chris Page) and Fully A Virgin (Tyler Smith) picked up the remaining paychecks.
Owner Sandra Burnett was co-breeder of Big Bad Jane with Dan Noble’s late father Chip. Now in her sixth racing season, the winner has banked $452,734 in her stellar career. She is now trained by Christi Noble, Dan’s wife, who is having a spectacular season thus far in 2021.
The win for Dan Noble was his fourth on the program in the first six races.
Two races later another impressive triumph was recorded by Drama Act (Page), who defeated Sandy Sue (Miller) and Colorful Sky (Noble) in 1:52.1. The four-year-old daughter of Well Said won The Courageous Lady at Northfield Park and the Keystone Classic at The Meadows last season before ending her sophomore season by qualifying to the Breeders Crown final in her division. Drama Act is a homebred owned by the OK Corral of Illinois and is trained by Ron Burke.
Racing resumes Saturday (March 27) at Miami Valley with a 4:05 p.m. post time.
