Eightthehardway, True Cinder deserving stakes favorites


Eightthehardway, an easy winner two starts ago, and True Cinder, who delivered a breakthrough performance to clear her maiden condition after finishing second or third in three stakes, will be overwhelming favorites in a pair of $75,000 stakes restricted to Ohio-accredited horses Saturday at Mahoning Valley Race Course. To be eligible, a horse must be foaled in Ohio and sired by a stallion who stands in the Buckeye State.
