Tantrum Takes Best of Ohio Juvenile Stakes At Mahoning Valley

Tantrum wins the Best of Ohio Juvenile Stakes at Mahoning Valley.

Tantrum picked up the victory in the Best of Ohio Juvenile Stakes, besting 10 Ohio-registered 2-year-olds rivals in impressive fashion at Hollywood Gaming at Mahoning Valley Race Course in Youngstown, Ohio. The freshman son of Speightster-Go Go Tammy, by Tiznow was making his sixth career start en route to his first stakes triumph for Winblaze LLC and trainer Tim Hamm.

“It was exciting to win a race for this partnership (of Winstar Farm and Blazing Meadows) from our first group of 2-year-olds together,” admitted trainer Tim Hamm. “Turning for home, Malcom (jockey Franklin) was able to find a hole, got him through it with a good trip, and the rest was history.”

Tantrum left the gate as one of a trio of Hamm starters, at 5-2 odds, and pushed his lifetime bankroll to $122,454. Rumble Strip Ron, at 6-1, was second for Jose Bracho, with 7-1 Hip Hip Horray (Christian Pilares) third. The winner was clocked in 1:49.30 for the one and one-sixteenth miles contest.
