War Story is gearing up for his first start for trainer Jeffrey Radosevich next month in the William Hill Haskell Invitational (gr. I), where he will bid for his first stakes win against Triple Crown winner American Pharoah.
Terry Houghton and Jeff Radosevich topped the respective jockey and trainer standings at Hollywood Gaming at Mahoning Valley Race Course when the 67-day winter/spring meet ended April 25.
Turfway Park concluded its 46th winter/spring meet March 30 with Albin Jimenez and Mike Maker repeating their respective leading rider and trainer titles.
Despite offering two fewer days of live racing, Thistledown finished its 2011 racing year with a 10% gain in all-sources wagering on its live product compared to 2010.
An Ohio State Racing Commission investigation has ruled the Nov. 16 racing accident that killed 16-year-old apprentice jockey Josh Radosevich at Beulah Park unpreventable.
