Carbine Wins at Scioto Downs  – June 1, 2024

Virgil Morgan, Jr. continued his reign of the open events at Eldorado Scioto Downs on Saturday (June 1) when Carbine took the $25,000 Open Pace in 1:50.1.
Leaving from the assigned post six, Austin Hanners took Carbine straight to the front and never looked back. Charlie May (Brett Miller) got the pocket trip through quarters of 27, 55.3 and 1:23.2, while Arbin (Luke Hanners) started the outer flow heading into the clubhouse turn. By the three-quarter pole, the compact field had 3-in and 3-out with less than four lengths covering the field.
Powering through the stretch, Carbine won under a hand drive by one and a half lengths over Stars Align A (Dan Noble); Arbin held on for third.
Carbine is owned by Odds On Racing and now has nine wins in 16 seasonal starts and is just shy of a half-million in career earnings, with $497,969. The 6-year-old son of Somebeachsomewhere has done double duty all spring, breeding 46 mares.

 

 Congratulations Carbine on another win!

Miami Valley Raceway – May 4, 2024

Columbus, OH — The 2024 opening weekend at Eldorado Scioto Downs has come to a close. The cool night air during all three race cards may have hampered the fans on the patio, but inside establishments were full, especially Saturday night with a sold-out clubhouse.

The $27,000 Open Pace on Saturday (May 11) saw the first sub-1:50 mile of the season when Carbine (Austin Hanners) went gate-to-wire to win by a neck over Little Rocket Man (Jeremy Smith) in 1:49.2. Little Rocket Man got away fourth and pressured Carbine for the last quarter-mile, posting a :26.4 last quarter but fell just short of the win.

Carbine, a 6-year-old by Somebeachsomewhere who is trained by Virgil Morgan Jr. and owned by Odds On Racing, is doing double-duty this spring as he is both breeding and racing. He has now won eight of 14 on the year with $171,395 earned, which pushes his lifetime earnings to $478,719.
