XENIA — Harness racing at the Greene County Fair on Thursday turned into a happy night for Chad Slone of Jamestown.

The owner of several local horses won two races and finished second in another during the nine-race program.

Lady Ruth won the third race in the evening when Ken Holliday drove her to the front of the pack on the final lap.

“My job was pretty easy, Holliday said. “Trainer did all the hard work. I just had to put her in the right place at the right time and fortunately things worked out that I was able to do that, so yeah they deserve all the work.”

Rain began to fall with lightning accompanying it at the end of race No. 5 and halted the activities for sometime.

Party Boy Hill found his way to a second place finish in race No. 8 before I Choose You finished the night strong with another race win to have every horse Slone entered finish at least in the top-two of its race.

Gate on East end of track repaired

A gate on the east end of the track which was previously not operational was fixed prior to the beginning of Thursday night’s program.

The previously open gate had been used on Wednesday by a horse which broke free from its rider and exited the track during a race, which nearly injured nearby spectators before it was corralled.
