After a pair of miscues in the $400,000 Carl Milstein Memorial at Northfield Park last weekend, Lather Up seeks a rebound performance in the Buckeye State this Saturday (August 18).

A pair of $50,000 Ohio Sires Stakes divisions for three-year-old pacing colts will be contested Saturday night at Scioto Downs. First race post time is 6:30 pm, ET, with the two OHSS divisions slated as races five and seven.

North America Cup winner and OHSS leg one winner Lather Up will start from post two in the second OHSS division (race seven). The son of Im Gorgeous captured leg one in 1:50, before posting a blistering 1:48.1 clocking in his North America Cup triumph at Woodbine. Trained by Clyde Francis for breeders/owners Gary and Barbara Iles, Lather Up also won a Hempt elim in 1:49 at The Poconos and an Ohio Fair Stake at Scioto on Aug. 4 in a heart-stopping 1:49.4 with regular driver Montrell Teague at the lines. He currently sits seventh in the OHSS standings with 51 points to his credit and $20,000 in OHSS earnings.

Leg two winner Cinnamack returns to battle in the second OHSS division (race seven) for trainer Brian Brown and breeder/owner Emerald Highlands Farm from post six. This McArdle colt won leg two in 1:50.4 at Scioto Downs on June 9 and was fourth in leg two and sixth in leg three. A winner of $28,200 in this series, Cinnamack has $63,994 earned this season and $85,894 amassed lifetime.

Returning and facing these aforementioned colts is Rockathon, who sits second in this division (115 points). This Pet Rock gelding was third in leg one, then scored back-to-back wins in the next two OHSS legs, pacing in 1:51.1 and 1:51.4 respectively. A winner of $54,800 in this series to date, Rockathon has $112,015 in seasonal earnings and $231,966 in his career coffers. He starts from post seven in the second OHSS division (race seven) for trainer Kim Dailey and owners Carl and Melanie Atley.

The Atleys, who hail from Xenia, Ohio, also own Bounding Dragon, the top point getter (128) in this four-leg series. The son of Dragon Again has already won legs one (in 1:53) and three (1:51.1), with a second-place finish in the second leg. Trained by Mike Roth for the Atleys and co-owner Alan Keith, Bounding Dragon has amassed $57,500 in OSS earnings, with a seasonal bankroll of $105,100 and a lifetime bank account of $176,509. He headlines in the first division (race five), leaving from post five.

Of the 13 sophomore pacers, four each were sired by Ohio-based stallions Dragon Again and Pet Rock. As well, the stallions Im Gorgeous, McArdle, Mr Apples, Pet Rock, The Panderosa and We Will See are represented by one foal each.

Ohio Sires Stakes action continues with two $50,000 Leg Four divisions for three-year-old trotting fillies on Monday night, Aug. 20 at Northfield Park.
