Summer Touch cruised to victory in the first division of the $122,202 (div) Ohio Breeders Championship Two-Year-Old Filly Pace on the first day of racing at the Delaware County Fair.

Driver Chris Page used his pylon position and lead at every pole winning in 1:55.1 to win by two lengths over Gucci.

“She’s been perfect since day one,” said the winning driver. “We won with the ear plugs in today. Hopefully we are leaving a little bit for next year. She’s very user friendly.”

The Well Said lass previously won the $50,000 Ohio State Fair Stakes and the $300,000 Ohio Sire Stakes Final, amassing over $285,000 this year.

Ron Burke trains Summer Touch for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi and breeders Knox Services and Slaughter Racing Stable.

Rainy Day Chic (Brett Miller) took the faster of the two divisions. The daughter of Rockin Amadeus went gate-to-wire to score a two-and-a-half length win over Free Thinker (Josh Sutton) in 1:54.4. Rainy Day Chic won for the sixth time in 10 seasonal starts. Dan O’Mara conditions the winner for Marjorie Polhamus.

Gold Digger King (Brett Miller) held off a late rally by Bllack Hole by a scant nose to win the $8,300 OBC for aged pacers. Scott Mogan trains the four-year-old gelded son of Pet Rock for Linda Van Camp. The winning time of 1:51.4 equaled the stakes record.

The $17,500 divisions of the Buckeye Stallion Series (BSS) for three-year-old trotting colts went to Big Box Hanover (Jeff Nisonger) in 1:59, Holton (Kayne Kauffman) in 1:58.2, Rose Run Vindicate (Brett Miller) in 1:57.2 and Rose Run Valor (Kayne Kauffman) in 1:57.3.

The sophomore filly trot BSS divisions went to Lights Down Low (John DeLong) in 1:57, Dream Change (Kayne Kauffman) in 1:58.1 and Susie D (Ken Holliday) in 1:58.

Stephen Oldford took the Tim Fouts Memorial Driving Championship with Missile J in 1:54. Oldford represented the Delvin Miller Amateur Driving Association.

Tuesday’s 14-race card will go postward at 3:00 p.m. (EDT).
