Harry G and harness racing driver Doug McNair took the tough route to victory in the Mar. 2 N/W$52,000 lifetime pace at The Raceway at Western Fair.
Harry G took back to fifth early, allowing Spectrum Seelster (Travis Cullen) to lead through an opening quarter in 29. McNair quickly pulled the trigger though, going first-up at three-eighths and reaching third by the half in 1:00.3. Harry G poked a nose in front of Spectrum Seelster on the backstretch, but the latter fought back and set the third quarter time of 1:29.1.
The two horses were dead even turning for home, but Harry G found enough for one more push down the lane and drew away to win by half a length in 1:58.3. Spectrum Seelster settled for second, and Sports Nation (Austin Sorrie) came from the pocket to take show.
The winner, a four-year-old gelding by Rollwithitharry took his first win for owner Christina Gillis of Campbellville and trainer Mike Saftic. The horse has now won 10 races from 29 starts and earned just shy of $50,000 lifetime.
Also on the card, Colin Kelly took a driving triple with wins aboard Doc Fanelli in the second, Blackcreek Rosebud in the third, and Together We Run in the ninth. He now has eight in the win column in 2021.
