FAIR HILL, Md.--Mrs. John R.S. (Dolly) Fisher's Scoodic, trained by her son Jack and ridden by Mike Mitchell, won his third straight timber race, the $26,000 Novice Timber at Fair Hill's Twilight Racing on Friday, May 24.
"He's won easier every time, too," said John Fisher. "I asked Mike if this was his first rider over timber, and he said it was the first one he'd finished."
"The plan was to just get him in rhythm," said Mitchell. "He's a nice, classy horse."
Hadden Frost had ridden Scoodic in his previous two races over timber.
"Hadden told me that he can jump to the right, so just point him left," said Mitchell.
"I've always loved this horse," said Dolly Fisher. "When Jack said he was going to try him over timber, I asked him if it would be okay to call Edie Dixon."
Edith Dixon bred Schoodic and owned him throughout his hurdle racing career.
