From the end of June until the beginning of October, Herculisa flexed her muscles, winning seven times in eight starts. The strong showing resulted in her being named the 2021 Ohio Three-Year-Old Trotting Filly of the Year.

Herculisa claimed the Ohio Triple Crown by winning the Ohio Fair Stakes, the Ohio Sire Stakes final, and the Ohio Breeders Championship. She set a world record in the Sires Stakes final becoming the fastest three-year-old filly on a half-mile track.

The daughter of My MVP is trained by Virgil Morgan Jr. and owned by Jesmeral Stables.

Morgan said she matured as a three-year-old and showed her versatility.

“She has an enormous amount of talent," said the trainer. "She set the world record at Northfield cutting the mile and doing all the work and she won at Lexington after making a power move. “

Bred by Joe McLead, Billy Walters, and Up Front Racing, Herculisa won seven of 14 starts, earning $410,833 in 2021.

Herculisa will be honoured at the Ohio Harness Horsemen’s Association Annual Awards Banquet on January 15, at the Hilton Columbus-Polaris in Columbus, Ohio.
