STAR SWAGGER CRUISES IN ISOBA STAKE
Taking advantage of the short field and their inside starting spot, driver Mike Oosting sent Brianna Walton & Paula Smith’s Star Swagger right to the front and the filly remained in full command the entire way as she cruised to a two-length victory in 1:59.4.
With the compact field content to race single file through leisurely splits of 29.4, 1:00.4 & 1:32.1, the Joel Smith-trained miss had no problem holding the pocket sitting JC Josie (Homer Hochstetler) at bay, trotting home in a snappy 27.3 to secure the victory. JC Josie was forced to settle for the bridesmaid role while Filly Hotspur (Del Chupp) was third.
Stating her case for divisional honors by posting her seventh win of the season, this daughter of Valley Victor boasts earnings of $115,505 in 2007.
