Columbus, Ohio--The CKG Billings Harness Driving Series made a stop at Scioto Downs on Thursday, August 8 for a trotting contest for members of the Midwest region and the lethal lady from Washington Court House Ohio, Alesha Binkley displayed her considerable talents when she turned back six others with a picture-perfect drive to score a 1:58 victory with Hititoutofthepark.

After settling in the two-hole and smartly allowing Steve "You're Never Too" Oldford and Smart Flight to show the way to the first stanza in a speedy :27.4 Ms Binkley was content to follow the leader. And when Kelly "Sky" Walker moved Security Guard first-up followed closely by Mego Moss and driver Gregg "Fast Greggy" Keidel when they headed up the backside Binkley sat chilly and waited.

As the leaders came off the final turn and were looking for paydirt it was clear that Walker and Keidel didn't have enough horse to capitalize. But as Smart Flight's strides began to shorten Binkley's charge began to make a serious challenge and just before the photo camera flashed Hititoutofthepark got his head in front and went on to victory. Two lengths in the rears in third place was Security Guard.

It was Binkley's fifth winning drive and the sixth seasonal victory for the son of Yankee Glide who paid $5.20. He's owned by Trent Stohler Stable, Tim and Benjamin Graber and the Hen-Shaut Stable nd trained by Stohler.
