Macie Davidson is one of the few in the race to be running two horses, and certainly the only youth to have the honor. And, (correct me if I’m wrong) Macie is the only rider bringing a pony into the snakepit that is The Best of the Best in Ohio Slot Race! But it’s not just any pony, it’s the famous Gypsy Pony! Hear about the TOUGH horses this pint-sized jockey will be pushing through the pattern. NOTE: Even if you don’t know the draw, you will know when Macie and Natalie Davidson in the pen… because their fan base hustles them as hard as they hustle their horses!
