The Darke County Harness Horsemen Association recently donated $500.00 to the Gene Riegle Memorial Race purse. The Gene Riegle Memorial Race is held during the harness races at the Great Darke County Fair in August.
Riegle was a successful harness racing driver and trainer from Greenville, OH. In 1951, Gene at 17 years of age won the first start of his career with Victory Dale at the Darke County Fair in Greenville, in a race in which he beat Hall of Fame horseman Sanders Russell. His first “successful” horse was Red Sails, in 1952, and he burst fully onto the national scene when he drove the trotter Mr Saunders to second and third place finishes in the 1958 Hambletonian.
He was at the top levels of harness racing, producing many champion pacers and trotters. Riegle was elected to harness racing’s Living Hall of Fame in 1991 and was inducted into the Ohio Harness Racing Hall of Fame in 1987. He trained such stars as Arnie Almahurst, Jay Time, Artsplace, Western Hanover, Three Diamonds, Life Sign, among many others. Life Sign won what was perhaps the most exciting Little Brown Jug of all time.

The fifth annual GGSA/GCBL cornhole tournament is in the books as 31 singles players and 28 doubles teams took part in the annual event at Paws Bingo Hall in Greenville.
A great collection of local and regional talent appeared in support of the Greenville Girls Softball Association and the Greenville Citizens Baseball League again this year.
The day-long event began with 31 players competing in the singles double-elimination tournament, which was a record for participants in the event’s five-year history. The first and biggest upset of the tournament came in the opening round when last year’s singles tournament champion, Matt Guy of Alexandria, Ky., was upset by fellow Kentuckian Derrek King. Guy’s singles tournament ended with a 2-2 record.
After knocking off Guy in the first round, King fought his way through the losers bracket after a second round loss and then beat Michael Ratcliffe of Frankfort, Ky., to setup a finals match up with a relative local in Travis Jess of Piqua.
Jess didn’t flinch, however, as he finished off the singles tournament with a perfect 6-0 record and his first singles tournament championship. After fighting his way through the losers bracket, Derrek King finished the tournament 7-2 with a second place finish.
The doubles tournament, which got underway a little later than planned because of the record singles tournament numbers, saw Matt and Brett Guy take home their second GGSA/GCBL cornhole tournament championship. The father/son duo are two of the best in the nation as Matt is currently ranked No. 2 in the ACO world rankings while his son Brett is ranked No. 16. It wasn’t a cake walk for the two veterans, however, as they faced some stiff competition on their way to the championship and the big payday.
The top half of the bracket was stacked full of ranked players meaning that not unlike the singles tournament, some very good teams would be knocked into the losers bracket in a hurry. But Matt and Brett Guy took care of things early to move through the winners bracket, cleanly sending the rest to play survivor in the losers bracket.
In the end, the team of Corey Henderson of Jackson and Jack Stagge of Lynchburg made their way out of the losers bracket to face the tandem of Matt and Brett Guy in the championship match late Saturday evening.
The two teams battled throughout the championship game with Henderson and Stagge jumping out in front. But in the end the father/son duo came from behind with some clutch tosses late in the match pulling off a 21-16 win to clinch their second title.
It took many dedicated people from both the Greenville Girls Softball Association and Greenville Citizens Baseball League to pull off such a great event, which included officers and trustees from both local organizations, which benefited from the fundraising event, officials said. The event also was made possible by the many local businesses that stepped up to the plate with sponsorships including: Fairlawn Steakhouse, Aramark, Jim Gable/State Farm Insurance, TXI, Drew Farms, Drew Ag Transport, Lucille Breaden, Modern Electric, BJ’s Concessions, ANA Automotive, Teafords, Kesco Products, Lisa Francis/Leis Realty, Doug Shields Investments, Second National Bank, Double M Diner, Walker Construction, Winners Meat Market, Littman-Thomas Insurance, Fellers Classic Auto, Southside Custom Cycle, Shaffer Maintenance, Buckeye Clean Event, Justin Reigle, Buckeye Beverage, Zechar-Bailey Funeral Home, Bolyards Heating & Cooling, 3-Way Electric, Jim’s Drive In, Club 7 Sports, Eikenberry’s IGA, Todd Garland, Sunset Awards/Jim Hackney and a special thank you to Paws Bingo Hall.
