Totally Obsessed strolled to a front-running, 3 1/4-length victory in the $75,000 Southern Park S. Saturday at Mahoning Valley Race Course, the first stakes win for the 3-year-old Tale of Ekati filly.
Twice stakes-placed as a 2-year-old, Totally Obsessed upped her record to 4-2-0 in nine starts, with $153,517 in earnings for owner Ron Paolucci Racing, LLC.
Getting to the front soon after the start, Totally Obsessed controlled the race the entire six furlongs, widening her margin the entire trip to win in hand.
The winner was bred by Schleprock Racing LLC. Her dam Dark Obsession has produced six foals, all multiple winners, including Totally Obsessed’s graded stakes-placed full brother Dark Vader.
