Thoroughbreds complete race card at Martinsville

MARTINSVILLE, Ill. — Thoroughbred races were on Friday’s card to wind up four days of Illinois racing at the Martinsville Agricultural Fair.

Horses owned by Bart Baird and Lance and Stacey Holsapple won all six of the thoroughbred races on the card with two other features run for ponies and mules.

Bart Baird is the son of Martinsville native Dale Baird, the winningest trainer of all time. He brought three horses from West Virginia for the occasion. They ordinarily run at the Mountaineer track.

Brad Hollingsworth was in the saddle for all three winners.

Trailhead edged Rav’n Raj in a five-furlong race for Illinois-bred 3-year-olds, winning in 58.2 seconds.

Autumn Splendor edged Imer in a photo finish in another five-furlong race for 4-year-olds and up, winning in 58 seconds.

The third Baird win appropriately came in the National Road Derby, the Dale Baird Memorial. King Fest edged Burnin Tomcat Tom owned by Norm Bishop of Marshall, Ill., winning the longer race in 1:47.

The Derby also will be run at Greenup and Marshall and if King Fest wins two more times, Baird will receive a bonus.

The Holsapples are from Greenup and have dominated racing at the Martinsville site in recent seasons.

Fabled Legend, owned by Lance, won a race for 2-year-olds. Stacey’s winners were Eurita’s Gold and Tres Riches. Shane Collins was the jockey in all three races.

Eurita’s Gold put on a late charge to best Line I One, which led most of the 6-furlong race for 4-year-olds and up.

Marshall, Greenup and Martinsville are three of the four fairs still to have thoroughbred racing in Illinois.

Friday’s results

Illinois-bred 2-year-olds, 4.5 furlongs — Fabled Legend (Shane Collins), Devilish Whirl, Prize Bound Saluki, Raise The Wire, 56.0
