Alexachase and Bret Brittingham - just get up in the pouring rain to win in 1:54.2.

Kim and John Waite's Alexachase ($6.20, Bret Brittingham) overcame a driving rain and first-over harness racing trip to prevail in the $20,000 Mares Open Tuesday (September 18) at Harrington Raceway in 1:54.2 over a sloppy racetrack.

Trained by Waite, the 4-year-old Bettors Delight mare pulled first over passed the half mile in 57.4 seconds where she made a steady grind on pacesetter Monochromatic to three quarters in 1:26.2.

Alexachase wore down the leader in the stretch and was a determined winner.

It was the third consecutive win for Alexachase.

Driver Tony Morgan had three wins on the program. Montrell Teague, Bret Brittingham and Ross Wolfenden each had two.
