The Sunday harness racing card at Running Aces featured no less than five late losing Series finals going for a total of $70,000 in purse money, as well as the $12,000 Open Handicap Pace for horses & geldings.

In The Open Pace SF DontTellonMe provided his second win of the season for owner/trainer/driver Joe Casagranda, The duo stopped the clock in 1:52.2 to equal the lifetime best mile set right here last season for the 7 year old gelding by Cam Terrific, who left alertly from post 6 for the early lead before yielding and picking up the pocket trip, from which he easily rocketed past the leader Allmyxsliventexas (Mooney Svendsen) in the lane for the 2 ¾ length tally.

In the $15,000 Charlie Hare Trotting Series final, Lettinthenightroll ($3.40) delivered as part of a favorite entry in the wagering with driver Luke Plano in the bike for owner/trainer Jenni King. It was the fifth lifetime win for the four year old mare by Sos Lunar Eclipse who trotted the mile in 1:58.3.

In the $15,000 Norine C Pacing Series final E L Peacemaker ($3.80) completed the series sweep with another sharp win from gate-to-wire equaling her lifetime mark (1:55.1) set a week ago in the same series. The impressive four year old mare by Duneside Perch now shows four wins in a row for Owner Russell Crotchett and Trainer Brett Ballinger.

The $12,500 Bestdealintown Pacing Claiming Series final went to Mighty Fine Hi Ho ($11.60), who closed impressively from well off the pace to pick up a 1 ½ length win in 1:55.4 for the third win in 12 starts for the 11 year old gelding who was driven to victory by Dean Magee for Owner/Trainer Edwin Quevedo.

 The $15,000 Whata Terror Pacing Series final went to Mr. Ranger ($9.00) with Driver James Yoder in the sulky for Brett Boyd Racing and Trainer Gene Miller, in 1:54.4 for his first lifetime win in just three starts. The three year old Indiana bred gelding is by Palone Ranger.

And In The $12,500 Minnehaha Mares Pacing Claiming Series final Secret Alibi ($10.60) posted a pocket-rocket winning effort in 1:54.4 with Trainer/Driver Luke Plano in the bike to complete a triple on the card for Plano. It was the fourth win of the season for Secret Alibi in 20 starts for owner Heather Mathews.

Drivers James Yoder and dean Magee also picked up driving doubles on the program.
