A pair of Illinois Standardbred Owners and Breeders Association stakes will share the spotlight during this week’s racing action at Maywood Park. On Thursday, Oct. 15, a pair of $14,555 ISOBA divisions has attracted a total of 12 state-bred three-year-old pacing fillies while 13 of their male counterparts will be in action in a pair of $14,075 splits on Friday, Oct. 16. Post time on Thursday is 7:20 pm (central) while Friday’s post time has been moved up to 7:10 pm (central) once again.

On the filly side of the docket, Ronald Michelon’s Miss Olivia has been accorded the 5-2 morning line favoritism in Thursday’s first division of the ISOBA. The daughter of Cole Muffler-Expresso Gypsy is fresh off a big come-from-behind victory here at Maywood while facing older competition last Thursday. The Erv Miller trainee has started to find her best stride in the latter part of her second season, and she will be gunning for her fourth victory of the year.

Another Miller trainee, Annie Your Cool, is the 2-1 favorite in the second division on Thursday night. The Tanah Merah Farms-owned daughter of Cole Muffler-Annacrombie posted a victory in the Grandma Ann elimination at Balmoral Park in a career best of 1:53.1 and came up just a nose shy of upsetting division leader My Heart Was True in the Time Dancer Stake in DuQuoin.

The “boys” hit the track on Friday night and once again trainer Erv Miller has the 2-1 morning line favorite in the opening split, as he sends out Harvey Eisman’s Grandma Jan’s Max. A winner of almost $180,000 during his two-year-old season, this gelded son of Richess Hanover-Jan’s Julie Too has been victimized by bad racing luck in several of his most recent starts, but he has still managed to crack the $200,000 plateau in career earnings.

In the nightcap, division leader Park Lane Deputy will be looking to post his 14th victory of the season while adding to his bankroll of more than $203,000 this year. The Homer Hochstetler trainee owns a Super Night title, capturing the Pete Langley Memorial, and his career mark of 1:50 makes him the fastest pacer in this field by a full second. The pride of owner Shirley LeVin, this good-looking son of Sportsmaster-Darling Katherine has been installed as the 7-5 favorite despite drawing the outside post in the field of six.
