Twenty freshmen pacing colts are set to battle in two $50,000 Ohio Sires Stakes on Saturday (Aug. 8) at Eldorado Scioto Downs.

Odds On Pick Six and Im Sorry Man are previous leg winners who return in the first OHSS division (race 3). Trainer Melanie Wrenn will bridle up Odds On Pick Six for driver Peter Wrenn and Odds On Racing. This son of Racing Hill, out of the Somebeachsomewhere mare Beach Party Hill, captured Leg One at Scioto in 1:54.2, then finished second at Northfield to Im Sorry Man by half a length in Leg Two. Odds On Pick Six has amassed $80,450 and starts from post two.

Im Sorry Man hails from the Mark Rowe Stable for owner-breeder Matt Rowe and will start from post three with Kayne Kauffman at the lines. The son of Mr Apples was third in Leg One before winning Leg Two impressively at Northfield on July 25 in 1:53.2. This bay gelding has $47,000 in his coffers from his win and two third-place finishes in just four lifetime starts.

Heart Of Chewbacca, who leaves from post six for trainer Ronnie Burke and driver Dan Noble, bears watching. The striking black colt by Bring On The Beach was plagued by breaking issues earlier this year, but since transferring to the Burke Stable has rattled off a pair of impressive triumphs, with a 1:52.3 score on July 23 and a 1:51.3 victory on Aug. 1 at Scioto Downs. Heart Of Chewbacca was bred by Spring Haven Farm, is owned by Dennis Owens and Norman Rae Racing.

Charlie May, Laughagain Hanover and Hardt At Work will slug it out in the second OHSS division (Race 8). Charlie May is undefeated in this series thus far with triumphs in the first two legs in 1:54.2 and 1:53 for owner-breeder Don Tiger and trainer Steve Carter. From just three career starts, the McArdle gelding has earned $115,000 and has been saddled with a tough task in this latest contest, leaving from post 10 for driver Danny Noble.

Laughagain Hanover will be harnessed by trainer Laura Searway for owners MJ Cimaglio, W. Richardson and RK Gilmartin. The Hanover Shoe Farms-bred son of McArdle sports a bankroll of $55,373 from his victories in Legs One and Two, timed in 1:54.3 and 1:55. He leaves from post three with Tyler Smith at the lines.

Trainer Mike Micallef will leave from post five with Hardt At Work. The son of Manhardt has garnered $40,050 in earnings for Michigan owners Brett Boyd Racing and Anthony Formosa. The Gene Miller-bred gelding captured Leg One in 1:55.1 before finishing second in Leg Two to Charlie May.
