The Dr. Dan Farwick Memorial Series at Miami Valley Raceway came to a conclusion on Tuesday afternoon (April 18) with the $27,500 championship leg.
The late closer for non-winners of six races or $60,000 lifetime was open to trotters foaled in any jurisdiction, but it was a pair of Buckeye breds who finished one-two at the end of the 1:54.1 mile.
Another Breath (Jason Brewer), despite drawing the dreaded nine-hole on the outside of the starting gate, triumphed for the second straight week beating Lets Go Bucks (Dan Noble) and Milfords Z Tam (Tyler Smith). The Land Shark (Kayne Kauffman) cut all the fractions (:27.1, :56.3 and 1:24.3) before faltering in the stretch when a cavalry charge to the wire ensued.
Another Breath got away fifth, moved second-over and up to fourth at the half, was third on the outside at the three-quarters, then tipped three-wide off of eventual runner-up Lets Go Bucks cover and pressed to the front just steps from the wire.

The winner, a four-year-old son of Lous Legacy, now has eight career wins and $150,488 in earnings. He was recently purchased by owner Richard Mishkin and moved to the Jeff Johnson Jr. barn.
A $20,000 Open Trot was also contested with the lone mare in the seven-horse field schooling the ‘boys’ in 1:53.4. Moving up into Open company for the very first time, Honey B (Kyle Ater) outdid Dont Rush (Mike Oosting) and Walter White (Dan Noble) for her 13th career triumph, raising her lifetime bounty to $238,581. Dan Ater trains the five-year-old daughter of Victory Sam for Jim Burnett and Tim Homan.
