Morestride captures $75,000 Howard B. Noonan Stakes

​April 10, 2021 ~ Morestride had just that in the $75,000 Howard B. Noonan Stakes on Saturday afternoon at Mahoning Valley    The unaltered son of Midshipman-Smart Stride, by Smart Strike romped to a 2½ length victory in the sprint for Ohio-registered 3-year-olds in the second OTRF stake of the season.

Trained by Penny Rone for owner Mike Rone, Morestride, the second choice among the betting public, battled favorite and lone filly Esplanande (Jose Bracho) through most of the six-furlong contest. She ultimately hung on for second. 

Ridden by Luis Rivera, Morestride stopped the clock in a modest 1:16.08. Brig (4-1) was third for rider Christian Pilares, with 13-1 longshot Henry Mac notching fourth-place honors for jockey Hector Berrios. This latest victory upped Morestride’s career earnings to $102,900. Bred by Steve DeMaiolo, this was Morestride’s second triumph in as many tries this season.
