CLEVELAND - The 2013 Best of Ohio Series will take place at Thistledown Racino Saturday, October 12, with combined purses totaling $500,000. The Ohio Series will include races 4 through 8 on the card.
The Best of Ohio Distaff at 1-1/8 miles will feature Pay The Man and her arch-rival Caviar N Champagne.
Pay The Man is trained by Miguel Feliciano and took the Scarlet and Gray Handicap in September at Thistledown beating out Caviar N Champagne who finished 4 th. Pay The Man also won this race in 2012 and is favored for Saturday.
Caviar N Champagne’s stakes record this year is dignified winning the Rose DeBartolo Memorial, J.W. Petro Memorial and The Mike Mackey Handicap. While her previous wins were at 1-1/16 mile, don’t discount this one as jockey Scott Spieth will skip a day at Keeneland to ride in this race. Post time is at 4:23p.m. (ET)
