In her rookie season, Gabbys C Note missed winning the Ohio Triple Crown by a head. The 2021 Ohio Two-Year-Old Trotting Filly of the Year would not be denied in 2022 as she captured the Triple Crown on her way to repeating as the trotting filly of the year, this time as the Ohio Three-Year-Old Trotting Filly of the Year.

The daughter of Triumphant Caviar won 10 of 17 races in her sophomore season, including the Ohio State Fair Stakes, the Ohio Sires Stakes final, and the Ohio Breeders Championship, which make up the Ohio Triple Crown.  She also won three legs of the Ohio Sires Stakes.  She earned $386,788 in 2022.

Chris Beaver trains Gabbys C Note and he said it takes consistency to repeat as a divisional winner.

“She was always professional. She showed up and was a little better than the other horses in her division.” 

Beaver co-owns Gabbys C Note with his mother Johanna, who is also the breeder, and Steve Zeehandelar.  

Gabbys C Note comes from a family that my parents have owned since the '60s.  It was big for them to win the Triple Crown.”

Gabbys C Note will be honoured at the Ohio Harness Horsemen’s Association Annual Awards Banquet on Jan. 14 at the Hilton Columbus-Polaris in Columbus, Ohio. 

The 2022 Ohio Horse of the Year will be announced at the annual awards banquet.
