Royal Precedent will be looking for its second OSS win of the year. Royal Precedent, trained by Jodi Schillaci, took off and won the first leg at Miami Valley Raceway on May 4 in 1:54.1. The son of Creatine will start from post position one with Ronnie Wrenn Jr. by bike. Royal Precedent is 5-2 on the morning line.

Tennessee Tom, last year’s two-year-old colt in Ohio, did not compete in the first leg of the colt stakes. Chris Page will ride the Long Tom gelding for trainer Ron Burke. Tennessee Tom has won both of his starts this year, winning the James K. Hackett elimination and the finals at Miami Valley Raceway. Tennessee Tom has the number three post position and is the third choice at 3-1.

The favorite is Spaaaanzano. Aaron Merriman will ride the 2-1 favorite for trainer Chris Beaver. Spaaaanzano turned in a record-breaking performance, winning the Battle of Bunker Hill at Plainridge Park last month. The son of Coraggioso will start from the fifth position.

The second leg of the Ohio Sires Stakes is part of the Battle of Lake Erie card at MGM Northfield Park. The card includes the Battle of Lake Erie, the MGM Buckeye Distaff and six races in the Buckeye Stallion Series for 3-year-old stallions and geldings. The first race after the time for MGM Northfield Park’s 16-race card is 6 p.m.
