LEBANON, OH. – Driver Dan Noble will have an enviable decision to make following the draw for the $30,000 championship of the Claim To Fame series for $20,000 claiming trotters to be held next Monday (Jan. 25). He managed to win both divisions of the final preliminary leg this Monday (Jan. 18), guiding both Here Comes Moony (1:56, $8) and Another Breath (1:56.4, $7.60) to relatively easy victories.
There were no repeat winners in the two weeks of preliminaries, so the final should be contentious. In order of series earnings, which determined the final combatants, the championship field will be comprised of Another Breath, Majestic Brayden, Here Comes Moony, For A Dreamer, Hill Side, Swan Before All, Riverdancing Diva, Luminosity and Mr Houdini.
Justabitofcharm (Chris Page, 1:55, $2.80), Classic Comedy (Noble, 1:55.2, $4.60) and Tequilas Jet (Sam Widger, 1:54.3, $14.20) were triumphant in a trio of similar splits for $8000 distaff pacing mares to determine the finalists to chase $17,500 purse next week.
Those three winners will likely line up versus Astroffical, Don’t Mach Mia, Titi’s Ava, Oh Miss Rylee, Shuffle We Will and Faye’s Jet Mile.
