Beckhams Z Tam and driver Ricky Macomber Jr. made a clean sweep of the second round of Indiana Sires Stakes action after they captured the $75,000 final for three-year-old pacing colts and geldings at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Friday, July 7.

With a final time of 1:50.3, Beckhams Z Tam notched his third consecutive victory at Hoosier Park and became the sport’s newest $100,000 earner after the victory.

Leaving from post two in a talented field of 10, Beckhams Z Tam was unhurried from the gate and settled along the rail in fifth. Ronnie Wrenn Jr. had Meadowbrook Tiger pointed to the front from post six to get the first call through a snappy opening panel in :25.4. Limited Edition and Todd Warren benefitted from a pocket trip while Dave and Dennis and Brandon Bates were next in line, third.

Macomber Jr. gave Beckhams Z Tam the go-ahead and he quickly marched to the front to grab command just before the half in :54.2. Unable to wait any longer, Trace Tetrick also gave Rock N Tony the green light down the backside and he began his long first-over journey to the front.

Reaching the three-quarter clocking in 1:22.1, Rock N Tony was able to reach the leader’s wheel as the field tightened and turned for home. Rock N Tony began to feel the long first-over mile just as Beckhams Z Tam found another gear. Utilizing a :28.2 final quarter, Beckhams Z Tam kicked home to win by a two and a half lengths over Rock N Tony. Meadowbrook Tiger held on for third-place honours.

As the heavy betting favourite, Beckhams Z Tam returned $4.80 to his supporters at the betting windows.

Trained by Hoosier Park’s leading trainer, Jamie Macomber, Beckhams Z Tam recorded his seventh victory from eight seasonal starts and seventh lifetime win from 14 outings. The 1:50.3 clocking established a new lifetime mark for the three-year-old son of Always A Virgin-Saras Lucky Charm. Owned by the Z Tam Stables LLC, Beckhams Z Tam pushed his lifetime bankroll to $115,861 with the victory.

Live racing at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino will continue on Saturday, July 8 with a 12-race card featuring the $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes Final for three-year-old pacing fillies. First race post time is 6:30 p.m.
