Gunner Gabriel Trumpets to Victory in the 2024 OTBO Sales Grad Race! Gunner Gabriel, a 3 year old gelding by Dialed In out of the Harlan’s Holiday mare Simonetta, captured the 3rd annual $50,000 OTBO Sales Grad Race at Mahoning Valley Race Course on Monday, March 4th. Trained by Jason Dacosta and owned by Dacosta and Calypso Stable, he stopped the clock in a quick 1:12:58 defeating Compute This by 6 1/4 lengths with Gold Honey checking in third another 3 1/4 lengths back. Gunner Gabriel was bred by Daniel and Patricia Yates. Dialed In stands at Darby Dan Farms who are a major supporter of the OTBO annual stallion auction as well. All horses in this race passed through the OTBO annual Mixed Sale held in October. Every year there are tremendous young horses and broodmares offered by some of Ohio’s leading breeders. The OTBO is proud to sponsor this race as a means of thanking all of our consignors and buyers as well as highlighting the outstanding opportunities that breeding and racing Ohio Breds represents. Congratulations to all the participants and especially the connections of Gunner Gabriel!!! All photos courtesy of Conrad Photo
