Alex Richardson & Goin Mainstyle Are The Best Once Again
The New England Amateur Harness Drivers Club`s field of six, was the first race on the card but due to a recall caused by the # 1 horse Doridian,
it was temporarily delayed, and finally they headed around the first turn towards the start and then they were off.
Goin Manstyle # 4 with Alex Richardson wasted no time in leaving the gate and made it quickly to the top without any hesitation.
He was followed by #1 Doridian with Bill Krikorian and in 3rdwas Eric Davis and Chasen Cancun as they passed the quarter pole in :28.1.
The horses remained in the same position as they passed the clubhouse for the first time and headed towards the half mile pole, which registered :57.2 as they passed it.
The field continued to chase the leader Goin Manstyle, which appeared at this point that he was not going to falter in any way as he headed towards the three quarter pole and extended his lead.
It really appeared that the race was going to be for second and third at this point.
The third quarter was timed in 1:26 and they were making their way around the far turn and headed down the lane when from last place the #4 horse Tinys Million and Irving Bluestein
charged from the back of the pack and proceeded to close down on the second place horse along with # 5 Personnel Space and Gary Barbere,
as they both passed Chasen Cancun, who was second.
They arrived at the finish line # 4 Goin Manstyle and Alex Richardson won with room to spare in 1:55.4 , followed by Tinys Million who just
edged out Personnel Space for 2nd place.
Goin Manstyle is trained by Lisa Watson and owned by Wally & Lisa Watson, this horse seems to be very comfortable when Alex Richardson is behind the wheel
and this was not his first win in the bike with this horse in the amateur race. I`m sure the ride back to Maine must have been very enjoyable.

Tinys Million: $6.40 $2.80 Trifecta: 4/3/5 $308.00
