Hamburg, New York —Death One Little Lolly (Swan for All– Devout Hannover) broke the Buffalo Raceway trotting record on Saturday night (July 15) on a harness racing track listed as crude with a time of 1:55.3. The 6-year-old mare has broken her previous record of 1:56.0 set by Fox Valley Veto on 20 July 2018 and has also broken the filly trot criteria submitted by Chelsea’s Chance on 1 June 2018. 1 minute 56 seconds 1 was also repainted.
Ironically, Death One’s Little Raleigh unofficially beat the Buffalo Raceway track mark on June 24th with a time of 1:55.1, but that time was not recorded as it was during qualifying. rice field.
Death One Three Little Lorry ($2.90) faltered from 3rd place before taking the lead with times of 28.4s, 57.3s and 1m26.2s under the guidance of driver/trainer Joe Chindano Jr. . In the lane, the only question left was what the final time would be, and Death Ones Little Raleigh smartly trotted home to set his new record. She easily defeated Bacardi (David McKnight III) by her ten lengths, with Gracious Triumph (Sean McDonough) taking her third.
Co-owned by Fox Valley Racing Inc. and RBH Ventures Inc., the win was Death One Three Little Raleigh’s 14th race and third of the season. This win increased her earnings to her $24,055 in the campaign and her $237,124 in her career.
One Off Delight A ($5.50) had a second win in a row, this time winning the $15,500 Open Pace by 3/4 lengths over Villiam in 1:55.0.
So far it’s been a perfect pairing for One Off Delight A and driver Jim Morrill Jr. Last week, Morrill Jr. led the 9-year-old gelding to a two-horse victory in 1:53.1, and the two have now met again in the Open Company.
Stop Action had just won their second straight, clocking splits of 28.4s, 58.0s and 1m26.4s, rounding off the rails. But around the final turn, the closers began to rush in, putting Stop Action’s lead in jeopardy.
It didn’t take long for them to overtake Stop Action. One-off Delight A floated four wide in the lead, allowing Morrill Jr. to confidently take the lead. As Gunslinger Hill (David McKnight III) struggled for the show spot, Billiam (Chindano Jr.) never gave up, but had to settle for a tough second place finish.
9 year old gelding trained by Samuel Smith and owned by Mike Torcello One Off Delight (Gambler’s Delight-Tiger Sue) recorded 3 wins in 22 races in 2023. The win increased his season bankroll to $48,060 and his lifetime bankroll to $349,767.
In the $15,500 open trot, Conair Hall scored a much-needed post relief and used it to beat Jacqued by 2-3/4 lengths in 1:57.2.
After two gate-to-wire wins, Con Air Hall ($5.80) finished 7th and 8th on his next two tries, but not a favorable placement for his front-running style. rice field. So Con Eyre Hall, who completed four of his holes this week, knew he had a chance to take the lead.
As the start gate wings opened, Con Air Hall and Johnny Boy became involved in an early speed race. However, approaching the opening quarter pole, Johnny Boy relented, allowing Conair Hall to take command.
In a split of 29.1 seconds, 58.4 seconds, 1 minute 27.4 seconds, Conair Hall (Morrill Jr.) headed home by 6 horse lengths, grabbed the finish and escaped. Jackd (David McKnight III) won the minor prize race, with last week’s British Open winner Rougazi (Ray Fisher Jr.) finishing third.
For 10-year-old gelding Con Eyre Hall (Groton Hall Charms Chip), owned by Ronald Viele and trained by Jennifer Giuliani, it was the sixth win of the 21-race season. The win increased his seasonal earnings to $46,169 and his lifetime to $352,379.
