HAMBURG, N.Y. --- Armed Dangerously ($5.60) was locked and loaded in the $10,500 Open Trot at Buffalo Raceway Friday night (April 18) and scored a convincing one length victory over Stormont O My in 1:59.3 over a fast track.

The 5-year-old horse opened up a comfortable two length edge at the top of the stretch and was never in jeopardy of losing it from there.
Stormont O My () rallied for the place position while Fiorentina ( ), the pace setter, finished third.
