Mid-Ohio Memorial Trotting Sale Roadster Challenge

Robert Hershberger and his group have been busy gearing up for the Mid-Ohio Memorial Trotting Sale, which was supposed to have been held May 22 but has been postponed to June 26. This sale has produced many top road horses over the past few years and to help promote this new pipeline for the division, the sale organizers sponsored the inaugural $10,000 Mid-Ohio Trotting Sale Roadster Challenge at last year’s Lexington Junior League.

Hershberger and Junior League show manager Kent Moeller announced that class will be $15,000 this year and due to the interrupted show season as the result of the Corona Virus, they are waving the qualification requirement of having to have shown in two previous roadster classes. The only requirements for 2020 are the horse must have been purchased at either the 2018 or 2019 sale and not have shown prior to May 1, 2018.

Winner of that inaugural class was Thunder Rolls with Scooter Scheurich driving for Cascade Stables. This team went on to be reserve world’s champion in the USTA Classic at Louisville and UPHA Roadster To Bike Classic Grand Champions at the UPHA/American Royal. Melissa Moore and Uncle Beav were reserve in the Roadster Challenge at Lexington for Covered Bridge Farm. They also finished the season as the UPHA Roadster To Bike Classic Reserve Grand Champions.
