River Downs: Cold Trial stalks, pounces


Cold Trial sat behind the dueling leaders before being angled out and drawing away to win by two lengths in the $50,000 Hoover Stakes for 2-year-old Ohio-breds at River Downs.

Ridden by Luis Martinez, Cold Trial ($4) ran the 5 1/2 furlongs in 1:06.00. O'Rian and Gold Rush Casey, the early duelers, finished second and third, with O'Rian a neck in front of Gold Rush Casey.
