Goin Manstyle went “manstyle” Wire to Wire
Now let`s see, where did I leave off…………………………
The field of seven pacers are in line behind the starting gate for the third race and in a flash the gate opens and the horses charge away from the gate with Goin Manstyle and Alex Richardson
going right to the top, followed by Wholeftthegateopen with Bill Krikorian tucked in second and Russell Lawson hung on the outside in third.
On the rail in fourth is Bo Knows To Win with Scott Price at 3/5. They pass the quarter pole in :27.4.
Goin Manstyle is in command as they head to the half mile pole with the field remaining in the same position as they hit the half mile pole in :57.3
The field now heads down the backside with no change in position, as they head towards the ¾ pole and Richardson and Goin Manstyle
appear to have things in control, but we still have 3/8`s of a mile left to race, so it could still be anyone`s race, so let`s wait and see.
They pass the ¾ pole in 1:26.4 and are now rounding the final turn for that final brush to see who can kick in some new energy or will Goin Manstyle hang in there.
They are now heading down the lane and Goin Manstyle and Alex Richardson have no intention of spitting the bit.
They win with a little room to spare as they hit the wire in 1:56.2. Bo Knows To Win and Scott Price come on with a powerful kick to nab 2nd
and Wholeftthegateopen and Bill Krikorian snuck in for 3rd.
The winner is owned and trained by Wally and Lisa Watson and paid a nice $15.60 payoff. Alex Richardson put together a great drive, and he deserved his first place finish.
Fine drive Alex !!!
